  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands — November 8-12 Europort '83—the largest maritime exhibition in the world—will be held from Tuesday, November 8 to Saturday, November 12. The exhibition will be held for the 21st time, in Amsterdam, using all nine halls of the newly expanded RAI Exhibition Centre. A record number of shipping and shipbuilding executives as well as technical personnel from all over the world are expected to attend.

    Until recently, Europort was staged annually. However, after Europort '81, it was decided to continue the event every other year. The increased capacity of the RAI complex and the transfer of Europort's management to RAI Gebouw B.V., contributed to the decision to hold the exhibition every two years. (RAI Gebouw is not only responsible for the management of the exhibition and conference facilities, but also organizes most of the events staged at the RAI complex.) Well over 430 exhibitors from 26 countries, together representing over 1,200 firms, have reserved stands at Europort '83. There will be six national stands—Denmark, East Germany, Finland, Japan, the United Kingdom and West Germany—among the participants.

    The exhibits this year will cover a wide range of products and services including: shipbuilding; fitting- out, repair and maintenance; cooling and refrigeration; containerization and storage tanks; harbor and port equipment; patrol craft, lifeboats and workboats; propulsion systems; auxiliary power supply; communication and navigation equipment and systems; calculation, measurement, regulation and steering systems; loading and unloading systems; advisors, designers and consultants. Other types of marine services, such as financing and insurance, decoration, oceanology, fishing, dredging, etc., will also be represented.

    International Maritime Finance Conference The main conference at Europort '83 will concentrate on International Maritime Finance.

    Speakers for the two-day congress will discuss the financial effects of international shipping policies, the problem of shipbuilding subsidies, the justification of finance for new tonnage (including cruise ships) and the financing of major machinery conversions.
