ABOUT THE CONGRESS

The Latin American Congress of Ports is an annual event convened by the Latin American Delegation of the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA).
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 2020 edition is convened in strategic alliance with the Sociedad Portuaria Regional de Cartagena (SPRC).
CONVENED BY
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PORT AUTHORITIES (AAPA)
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.

SOCIEDAD PORTUARIA REGIONAL DE CARTAGENA (SPRC)
The Sociedad Portuaria Regional de Cartagena (SPRC) has been listed nine times as the Best Caribbean Port by the Caribbean Shipping Association, thanks to its high levels of productivity and efficiency. It has also been rated as the most reliable port by the same association.
The maritime terminal of Manga has been managed by SPRC since 1993 and during its more than 20 years of operation, the terminal has increased its operational productivity, expanded its storage capacity, boosted the speed of procedures and established a rigorous security scheme. This allowed the Terminal to play a central role in the opening of the Colombian economy in the 90’s and to be an essential piece in the promotion of foreign trade nowadays.
This extensive development, added to its strategic location, allows the Terminal to offer its clients an excellent, efficient and safe service. This is how it has become one of the main worldwide hubs for the most important international shipping lines.
