Two Days of Intense, Intelligent Discussion
The global marine transportation system is changing and nowhere is that more apparent than in seaports. Never has it been more important for managers in port authorities, marine terminal operators and their supply chain partners to learn about how others are meeting the current challenges in the industry, what leaders see as the next steps as well as the emerging solutions for an efficient, productive industry.
Management in the seaport community need current information on all aspects of seaport and marine terminal operations to remain competitive. Management also need to be part of a network of peers designed to make knowledge transfer effective. PORTCON is a unique professional learning opportunity for the entire industry designed to help management professionals stay abreast of current and emerging topics and trends in the industry. Attendees learn from the speaker presentations and panels, from the solution providers in the expo, and by networking with their peers. The program awards participants 1.5 Continuing Education Units(CEUs).
Vision, Mission, History.
Vision… to enhance the value of seaports and marine transportation to society.
Mission… to provide learning pathways for seaport and marine transportation management that strengthen the industry.
To support continuous professional development in the industry and improve practices through information exchange, MacDonnell hosts an annual series of conferences in North America. Originally established in 2006, this conference and expo, now PORTCON, has evolved into a bi-annual gathering attended by managers from port authorities, marine terminal operators and other related supply chain professionals.
PORTCON was created to consolidate a number of initiatives developed over the past ten years with a goal to improve the competitiveness of seaport operations. This includes the CPE Certified Port Executive Program, which has an alumni of over 500 seaport managers, and PORTSTAR, an online seaport security training solution that over 20,000 seaport employees have participated in. The conference acts as the opportunity for an annual update for senior seaport management on key issues.
