#PortNews - The International Association of Port Cities (AIVP) will host its AGM for 2015 in Dublin next month ahead of the June Bank Holiday weekend.

'Working Waterfront' is the topic of the two-day meeting which begins with a general assembly at Dublin Castle on Thursday 28 May. Full details of the programme are available HERE.

"Few in number, and in high demand, waterfronts today are becoming strong identifying elements in port cities which are open to the world," according to the organisers, who identify such dynamic areas as 'city-port mixing in progress'.

Panels on the day will discuss city waterfronts as spaces geared towards the maritime economy, cultural activities and more.

They will be followed on Friday 29 May by a tour of Dublin's Docklands and Dublin Port to examine the Irish capital's particular challenges in regenerating its port and reintegrating it as part of the city.

And attendees will be free to enjoy the festivities of the Dublin Port Riverfest, which begins on Saturday 30 May running till Monday 1 June.

Now in its third year, visitors to North Wall Quay over the weekend should expect a "unique celebration" with "a jam packed programme of entertainment and family fun".

Not least among the events planned for the three-day celebration on the Liffey is the arrival of three tall ships and four schooners that will berth at North Wall Quay for the duration.

More details of the maritime festival programme will be available as the weekend draws near.
