This new conference series will focus on harbours, ports and recreational boating in the Asia Pacific region. Our 2020 Conference theme “Port, harbour and recreational boating for today and tomorrow” reflects PIANC’s recognition of the natural environment in developing projects and the growing emphasis on a social licence to operate. Importantly, all of PIANC’s main themes will be covered and we encourage you to attend this conference and/or seek involvement from members in your national section or commissions.
The PIANC APAC 2020 conference will include concurrent streams that provide an opportunity for discussion and networking. A trade exhibition will host the Welcome Reception and a Gala Conference Dinner is planned with multiple PIANC awards to be presented. In addition, technical tours and networking events will form part of the Conference. Prior to the conference, a 2-day symposium on Nature Based Solutions for Coasts, Ports and Estuaries is being held with prestigious speakers presenting on this emerging topic.
