Event Description

Join AAPA and its 34 LATAM Port Members for the premier event of the seaport industry in Latin America!

In its 31st year, the AAPA LATAM Convention of Ports is the leading event for port professionals, terminal operators, service providers, and supply chain partners in South America. From Pacific Ocean and Gulf ports down through Central America and extending to Argentina’s southern border, this event includes ports responsible for 15,000 km of coast.

Throughout this current decade, ports have faced transportation gridlock, supply chain disruptions, rising costs, labor shortages, and capacity constraints, all of which have affected port performance and played a significant role in the global economy. The cutting-edge business programming at the LATAM Convention of Ports explores the latest trends and its dynamic exhibit hall showcases innovative solutions for navigating these unique and critical challenges.

The XXXI AAPA LATAM Convention of Ports will include keynote addresses, sessions, and workshops on issues critical to Latin America, such as Offshore Wind Development, Digitalization, Smart Ports Technology, Cyber Security, Private Investment, Project Development, Engineering, 5G Network Development, Microgrid Development, and Hydrogen Fuels.

Join us in Barranquilla, Colombia December 4-6, 2023 for this exclusive opportunity to connect with port professionals, transportation leaders, and maritime industry innovators to learn, explore, and discover solutions that empower ports, people, and businesses.

Find out why AAPA has distinguished itself as the Essential. Resilient. and United leader of the maritime industry in the Western Hemisphere. We look forward to seeing you!
