Invitation to seminars on semi-sized, tourist, fishing ports in the BSR

Invitation to seminars on semi-sized, tourist, fishing ports in the Baltic Sea Region

Dear UBC members,

Baltic Ports Organization is organizing seminars on small & semi-sized ports on 3rd of September in Bornholm, Denmark. Below please find an invitation.

These seminars deal with the two types of small and semi-sized ports. First seminar is addressed to small ports focusing on tourism, yachting, fishery. The second one is addressed for semi-sized ports having more commercial profile (cargo handling). In the Baltic region, local governments (cities, town or communes) play usually an ownership role in these type of smaller ports. Therefore, challenges that these ports are facing recently are also challenges for towns and communes in the region. The seminars are associated with the Baltic Ports Conference that is held on 4-5 of September 2014.

BPO invited UBC to co-operate in organizing these seminars through:

- inviting some speakers from UBC network for the seminars;

- participation of representatives of UBC at these seminars;

- promoting of the events via UBC network.

The intention of the seminars is to initiate the projects between these types of ports that should stimulate the exchange of know-how, increase the management skills and thus contribute to the performance of smaller ports in the Baltic.

UBC Executive Board at its 70th meeting in Turku 2 June 2014 accepted BPO invitation to be a partner in the mentioned seminars on semi-sized, tourist, fishing ports.

Please inform if your city would be interested to contribute to the seminars with presentation(s).

Please note that speakers from UBC cities are released from conference and seminars fees.

Special fees for non-speakers from UBC member cities:
70 EUR (instead 100 EUR) for the seminars
340 EUR (instead 390 EUR) for the conference

With kind regards,

Paweł Żaboklicki
Secretary General
