PPG Conference a Huge Success in Portland, the "City of Roses"

Project Professionals Group’s 11th annual conference in Portland, Oregon, USA from 26-28 September 2018 delivered informative sponsor presentations and productive member meetings while also providing attendees with the opportunity to experience the “City of Roses”.


Memorable moments included the welcoming Cocktail Reception including the Warm Springs Indian Dancing Group and our Willamette River cruise.


There are lots of memories and everybody seemed to have a great time where old friendships were renewed and new business and personal relationships established, all of which will hold us in good stead for the long term future.


During the PPG Conference, informative presentations were made by Port of Portland; Port of Vancouver USA; Port of Corpus Christi; BBC Chartering; Smith Agri International; Jumbo Maritime; Heavy Lift Project Forwarding International; and Easyfairs/AntwerpXL. We thank all of our major sponsors and special guest presenters.


New member presentations were also a feature from Cargo Line International, Australia; Rodair International, Canada; CMX Global, Australia; Access World, Australia; Atlas Shipping, India; and Emu Lines, India.


The 2019 conference venue will be Ho Chi Minh City (commonly known as Saigon), Vietnam.
