Ahoy Trelleborg - Go LNG seminar

Go LNG project project is pleased to welcome you to Trelleborg for another Go LNG seminar, which will take place at Baltic Ports Conference 2017 in Trelleborg, Sweden!

The Baltic Ports Conference (BPC) is the most important annual event for the organization, as all BPO members, other participants and guests join together to discuss the key and urgent issues for the port business.
Each year the conference is dedicated to the most current topics relevant to the Baltic Sea region. BPC is an excellent platform for communication and every year it is attended by representatives of the European Commission, non-profit organizations, private companies and, of course, ports of the BSR and beyond. Carefully chosen speakers give highly professional and insightful presentations and share their experiences on contemporary Baltic topics.
The conference is also accompanied by the General Assembly of the BPO members where summaries as well as discussions on up to date BPO business and future plans take place.
