The ShortSea Shipping Annual Conference this year is bound for the Port of Huelva, Spain on 28 November, with the conference title of "Short Sea Shipping: Efficiency, Sustainability, and Connectivity in the Service of Maritime and Land Logistics Chains."

The conference is to be hosted by the Port Authority of Huelva and is organized by the Spanish Association for the Promotion of Short Sea Shipping (SPC, Spain) and is also under the Spanish Presidency of the European Shortsea Network (ESN).

Featuring at the event will be a high level of national and international speakers, both institutional and sectoral. It will be developed around 3 axes with a huge impact on the competitiveness of Short Sea Shipping through Connectivity, Efficiency and Sustainability.

Also taking place is the EALING Project event which will be present at the conference with a dedicated corner to involve local stakeholders and showcase the project results.
