    Port Outlook 2018 – Sponsored by DP World

    Royal Victorian Motor Yacht Club
    260 Nelson Place, Williamstown 


    The VTA has assembled another great list of senior leaders from the Victorian ports communities to address seminar delegates, including the CEOs from the Port of Melbourne Corporation, Victorian Ports Corporation, Port of Portland and Victorian Regional Channels Association, as well as senior leaders from event sponsor DP World Australia, Victoria International Container Terminal and MIRRAT, with other presenters being finalised as we speak.

    The timing of Port Outlook 2018 comes at a critical juncture for stakeholders involved in our ports and channels networks considering the spike in recent industrial activity, and operators having to respond to higher business costs in the supply chain. 

    So, it will be interesting to hear from our speakers on how their respective organisations are responding to such challenges in an increasingly complex environment.
