Internal meeting and meet & greet lunch in Bilbao – WindEurope’s conference and exhibition event (Bilbao)
The Ports Platform, with the support of WindEurope, booked a stand at Bilbao’s exhibition center. This allowed the Ports Platform to have full visibility, organise internal and b2b meetings and have a dedicated location for the meet&greet lunch.
The ports invited, at the internal meeting, Xavier Guillou, Policy Officer at DG MARE, in order to gather more information about European Commission’s priorities and specific funding schemes.
The meeting was followed by a meet&greet lunch organised by the ports, specifically targeting the offshore supply chain. Over 30 people registered for the lunch and about 50 total participants finally attended.
During Bilbao Conference and Exhibition, 3 new ports joined the platform: Port of Bilbao, Port of La Coruꬼa and Port of Roenne.
The group also had the opportunity to have a private visit to the Port of Bilbao.
