Sign up today to catch up with the latest developments in Smart Digital Ports

For the first time since 2019, Smart Digital Ports of the Future returned to a live, in-person event on 11th and 12th May 2022 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.  The event was attended by the industry’s leading innovators, and representatives from the world’s smartest ports.

This year’s event showcased the technologies that are transforming the way ports do business – from discussions about standardisation and data sharing, to technical case studies from the most advanced ports, on how they are unpacking the potential of emerging technologies such as AI, Digital Twin and IoT applications and many more.

Held at the nhow Rotterdam, the event provided a welcome return to the format that best allows the cultivation of ideas, promotes industry knowledge sharing and provided the opportunity, once again, to meet with industry colleagues.

In 2023, Smart Digital Ports of the Future will return to Rotterdam even bigger and better.  Register your interest now to secure 25% off event tickets when they go live.

Recorded sessions from SDP 2022 will be available online shortly so please check back for further updates.
