Aage Hempel Group visits Europort 2021 accompanied by two Grupo Arbulu companies, Navteam, SMD visited the 40th edition of Europort, a meeting place for the maritime industry  to connect, cooperate and innovate. This year, the need to meet face to face was more important than ever.


Since many decades Europort has been the exhibition and meeting place where the international maritime industry gets together to connect, cooperate and innovate. Now, 80 years in the process, the need to meet face-to-face may be stronger than ever. We are convinced that, in this digital era, personal encounters are indispensable to our industry. Therefore Europort remains dedicated to offer the right platform, driven by our key values.

Europort – organised in the Maritime Capital of Europe – is the premier exhibition for special purpose vessels. It is the business hub for pioneers and forward thinkers as the event focuses on specialised ships and high tech solutions for maritime transition.

Europort 2021 was a very special edition. During COVID times it was one of the few in-person events and as such emphasized the value of face-to-face meetings. These Facts & Figures summarize the visitors and exhibitors statistics and results. Moreover it demonstrates Europort’s essential role to connect, cooperate and innovate. See for yourself why you should not miss out next time in one of the world’s leading maritime meeting places.

Rotterdam is the ‘Leading Maritime Cities of the World’ report just launched by DNV and Menon Economics. It’s a well-deserved recognition, and a reason for the port city and surrounding business regions to celebrate. Rotterdam has always exerted a magnetic attraction on pioneers and market leaders. The ‘solution-based’ approach ensures that innovations are translated into production and thus become inspiring examples for the rest of the world. Its close proximity to the North Sea and three major rivers has led to the development of a strong maritime base in and around the city. The Rotterdam of today is an energy innovation and transition centre with tremendous ambition.
