27, 28 & 29 November 2024 in Lisbon

16, 17 & 18 November, Venice, Italy

AIVP Venice 2023

The AIVP team would like to thank you for taking the time to join us at our Annual Conference in Venice on November 16, 17 and 18, on the theme of "Linking Ports and Citizens: A shared vision for the Future".

“Linking global and local, technology and the citizens” is the guiding topic for this year’s AIVP Conference on November 16th, 17th and 18th 2023. Social acceptability and citizen dialogue are the essential foundation of innovative ports. Venice is an extreme example of some of the challenges that will be discussed: threatened by sea-level rise and flooding, often at the forefront of social issues such as tourism, while also keeping and protecting local culture and heritage. AIVP in cooperation with Venice’s North Adriatic Sea Port Authority will offer a rich program, hosting sessions to discuss citizen dialogue in the implementation of solutions for the energy transition, climate change and resilient port cities, balancing tourism and the blue economy with local priorities, or how port-city interface projects can connect citizens with their port. These and many other topics will be addressed in our forthcoming conference.

We hope to see you there! To learn more about the event and its program, click here:
