Conference feedback

“Attending Portcomms last year, I was very impressed with the quality of the event as well as the quality and quantity of the top decision makers attending from the sea port industry. During the conference we managed to build relations with potential new partners and customers. The presentations were excellent, and overall the value was fantastic.”

Yaron Ziv Managing Director Europe, Radwin

“Portcomms is a unique event gathering technology and logistics specialists from the most relevant European ports. The conference offers the opportunity to learn from the experience of different maritime port stakeholders regarding the exploitation and implementation of next generation wireless technologies. I highly recommend attending.”

José Luis Cárcel Cervera, Digital Transformation Engineer at Port of Valencia

“The Wireless Networks in Ports Conference is an excellent and tightly-focused event, with strong representation from users and customers in a well-defined vertical. It drills deeply into the specifics of the port environment and applications, with good comparisons between different deployments in the same general marketplace. It makes a refreshing change from the more general and broad forums, which are often too dominated by vendors”

Dean Bubley, CEO and Founder Disruptive Analysis

It was a great opportunity to meet the right people and make fruitful connections. I highly recommend it"
