About the event


Breakbulk Europe 2023 will be hosted as a live edition at Ahoy Rotterdam. The edition will be held between 06.06.2023 and 08.06.2023. Due to the Netherlands lifting its domestic restrictions in February 2022, the venue will not have Covid-19 safety measures in place. Organisers will instead highly encourage attendees to follow recommendations such as performing regular hand disinfection.

A Brief Look

Breakbulk Europe is a fairly recent international exhibition that was first held in 2006 and is by design, without a permanent home. Every year, the event moves around Europe with a current home at Ahoy Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Netherlands for its upcoming edition. The exhibition tackles the trends, challenges, and innovations in the cargo, logistics, and break-bulk circles. We also have to mention the satellite events in Asia, the Americas, and the Middle East. In attendance, you have at least 379 cargo owners by last count and over 10,000 visitors from 121 countries.

An Industry Profile

There is a lot of happening in break-bulk shipping, and exhibitors cover a lot of ground by displaying advancements in transport facilities, freight transport systems, ports, terminals, heavy hauliers and ocean carriers, among other transport technology solutions. The upcoming edition even promises not one, but two outdoor exhibition areas. The level of specialization means you will meet only serious buyers and investors looking for long-term partnerships. Besides business, there’s a support program that features educational and training workshops in tandem with a conference that occupies itself with the most of-the-moment subjects affecting the industry.
