We are the main port event in Latin America

Every year, more than 400 port leaders and international experts make this forum stand out as the most important business gathering of the industry. Three days of technical sessions serve to present and discuss major international port projects. In addition to this, the event provides intense social and networking activities, a technical port visit and a prominent space destined to commercial displays, in which the most representative industry suppliers participate.

The 2021 edition is convened by the Latin American Delegation of the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) in strategic alliance with the Grupo Puerto de Cartagena.

Founded in 1912 and headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia (USA), the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) is the premier organization representing over 130 deep water public ports of the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, over 200 members of the port service industry choose to associate with AAPA and avail themselves of the many marketing opportunities offered to them by AAPA.
For more than a century, AAPA membership has empowered port authorities and their maritime industry partners to serve global customers and create economic and social value for their communities.
Their programs, resources and partnerships connect, inform and unify seaport leaders and maritime professionals. AAPA promotes industry interests by providing critical leadership in security, trade, transport, infrastructure, environmental and other areas related to port development and operations.
AAPA is also dedicated to increase public, media and especially government entities’ awareness of the essential role played by ports in the global transportation system.
The Association has an extensive offering of education and training programs, conducts research on the port industry, and provides contact services and information to professionals in the sector.
