Plans Unveiled for Antwerp XL 2020

Antwerp XL, the world’s only event dedicated exclusively to maritime breakbulk, will have an expanded show floor and an even greater international audience when it returns to the Port of Antwerp on 21st-23rd April 2020.

The inaugural exhibition and conference, held at the largest breakbulk and steel port in Europe, made an impressive debut, attracting attendees from more than 57 nations.  However, thanks to a raft of new relationships with international industry networks, key cargo owner associations and ports, an even bigger gathering of global breakbulk professionals is expected in 2020.

Companies from the USA, the Middle East, and Africa, which is witnessing the next boom in infrastructure spending, together with China, which is experiencing its own surge in renewable energy infrastructure, are booked for Antwerp XL when it returns next year.

They will be joined by over 150 industry-leading organisations showcasing their latest products and services. The major companies already onboard include Spliethoff Group, Haropa, Blue Water Shipping, Höegh Autoliners, North Sea Port, the Port of Dover, the Port of Dunkirk, Fednav International, and registration sponsors Konecranes.

Supported by the Port of Antwerp, Antwerp XL prides itself on operating at the heart of the global industry. For 2020, the event has increased this focus; by developing new relationships and partnerships with key international industry networks and associations it expects to attract even more key cargo owners, carriers, ports and forwarders from around the globe.

Project Professionals Group (PPG), Project Freight Network (PFN), Worldwide Ship Agencies Association (WWSA), CLC Projects, Cargo Connections, and Project Cargo Network (PCN) have all confirmed their involvement in the show, with a mix of training, networking and social events all slated to take place at the event.
