Join our Coronavirus Webinar Series

In the running up to the 2021 Worlds Ports Conference, IAPH and IHS Markit have launched a new ongoing series of webinars, exploring the impact of the coronavirus on ports and supply chains.

Developed by the team behind the IAPH World Ports Conference, this free webinar series begins with a summer series focused on the interconnected topics of adapting business models, improving ship-shore relations, and driving data sharing. The summer series of webinars will see expert panelists including Kitack Lim (IMO Secretary General), Gene Seroka (Executive Director Port of Los Angeles), Jens Meier (CEO Hamburg Port Authority), Ley Hoon Quah (CEO Maritime and Port Authority Singapore), Noura Al Dhaheri (CEO MAQTA Gateway / Abu Dhabi Ports), Theo Notteboom (Shanghai Maritime University), Jan Hoffmann (Chief Logistics Branch UNCTAD) and Guy Platten (Secretary General International Chamber of Shipping) consider the unprecedented impact of the pandemic across ports and their stakeholders.

Attendees will be invited to pose their own questions about how global trade can stay resilient in the face of a global crisis unlike anything seen in recent decades.

The first three seminars are held on 13 May (4 PM CEST), 10 June (12 PM CEST) and 1 July (12 PM CET), this year in 2020.
