The AIVP is delighted to welcome you to its welcome cocktail.


Directeur Général Coordination Gouvernance et Réseau adhérents

Bruno Delsalle has devoted his professional life to the development of port cities and the recognition of their specific features and assets. In 1989, he played an active part in the launch of AIVP, which over the years has become the world's leading network for port cities on the theme of city-port issues and relations. Today, this network represents over a hundred port cities around the world, including Antwerp, Durban, Vancouver, Buenos Aires and Ningbo.

A maritime geographer and graduate of the Institut Portuaire d'Enseignement et de Recherche (IPER) in Le Havre with a specialisation in logistics and international trade, he is contributing to the gradual integration of the economic dimension into all AIVP international events.

Bruno Delsalle has taken part in numerous international conferences and events as a speaker, rapporteur and moderator. In 2014, he co-edited the book ‘Port City Governance’ published by the Sefacil Foundation.

In recent years, he has been actively involved with AIVP members in three innovative areas of work for port cities: marine renewable energies, industrial ecology and urban logistics. 

In December 2021, he will be appointed Managing Director of AIVP by the AIVP Executive Board, chaired by Edouard Philippe.
