Taking place from September 17 to 21, the inaugural Portugal Shipping Week will showcase Portugal’s role as a global shipping and logistics maritime centre. Policy-makers from the Portuguese Government will join shipowners and operators and other stakeholders from the maritime sector to focus on the region’s shipping, in all its different aspects, as well as considering global trends and influences.

Portugal Shipping Week is hosted by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea and run by a Steering Group. It is organised by leading international events company Shipping Innovation.


  • The Sines Port Community welcomes Portugal Shipping Week as a golden opportunity to show off Sines as the Atlantic gateway to Europe
    President, Port Community of Sines
  • Portugal has all the key conditions to be one of the centres of the shipping industry in Europe. I hope Portugal Shipping Week can show it to the global markets, strongly believing that the international shipowners will be incentivised with the Portuguese Government’s new measures, that will allow the Portuguese Flag to become increasingly competitive.
    President of the Board of EISAP
  • Portugal Shipping Week can be the storefront of the growth the Portuguese attractiveness for international shipowners. The country has an enormous potential and want to show it to the international markets. Portugal Shipping Week can be a wonderful opportunity.
    Managing Director of European Mar
  • Portugal in an amazing country. With small legislative changes, it can be, again, a truly respected maritime nation. We all hope to see the Portugal Shipping Week transformed on a dialogue window between the international markets and the country
    Member of the Board of EISAP and Managing Director of European Mar
  • As a Portuguese, I really believe in the idea that my country has a maritime destiny. For several years, that was forgotten, but with the legislative changes that are being made, and with the ones that will, for sure, be soon made, Portugal will be able to resume its place among the maritime nations of the world. Portugal Shipping Week will, I believe, show it
    Member of the Board of EISAP
