The future of UK ports post-Brexit – infrastructure, opportunities and policy


This conference will discuss the future for UK ports, examining key issues affecting the sector – and their customers, suppliers and local communities. It takes place against the backdrop of the UK leaving the European Union, and follows the publication of the Government’s customs proposal and its maritime export plan, for post-Brexit Britain. Delegates will discuss the potential skills, regulatory, market and customs challenges posed by Brexit, as well as opportunities for the UK to develop new trading agreements and attract investment. They will also consider the potential impact on the fisheries industry, options for supporting marine-based local economies, and further avenues for growth – including expanding non-EU business and developments in off-shore energy. Further sessions focus on steps that might be taken in order to address wider issues affecting UK port infrastructure – including road and rail connectivity, skills gaps and the regeneration of port communities.
