4th September 2013
British Ports Association Conference 2013 Heads for Grimsby

#UKportsConference – The British Ports Association annual conference offers a unique opportunity to catch up with all the latest policy, practice and technology in ports and harbours throughout the UK.

Now firmly established as a 'must do' event for all involved in the UK ports industry, the British Ports Association conference this year takes place at the English East coast port of Grimsby between 9-10 October.

Truly memorable...Hosted jointly this year by Grimsby Fish Dock Enterprises Ltd and Port of Grimsby East, and held in the attractive Forest Pines Golf Resort and Spa in the Lincolnshire countryside, the event looks set to provide the content and surroundings for a truly memorable event.

Professionally rewarding... With speakers offering a raft of topical presentations on a range of highly relevant subjects, the event offers a professionally rewarding two day conference, supported by a half-day port technical tour and various industry meetings.

Convivial networking environment... The formal programme is complemented by a convivial networking environment where both new business and new industry contacts may be made in the friendly atmosphere that is quintessentially the BPA Conference.

Cost-conscious rates... Delegate rates are set to reflect these cost-conscious times and offer exceptional value-for-money for such a 5-star Programme and location.

Booking is made easy... so to avoid disappointment, book early and online HERE. For further details of the BPA's conference visit:

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
