Hamburg To Host World's First Trade Fair On Port Planning/Operations

Portex '81, said to be the world's first comprehensive international trade fair and convention, will take place in Hamburg, West Germany, May 26 through 30, 1981. Hosted by Germany's largest port city, Portex '81 will cover all aspects of the planning and construction of modern port facilities, as well as demonstrate advanced cargo-handling equipment, harbor o p e r a t i o n s and maintenance, transshipment, and related services.

Filling an important gap, the event is seen as a much-needed forum and marketplace for all industries that provide or use port facilities.

The event will focus on six major topics: harbor planning, port construction, communications and signal equipment, cargo-handling gear, storage and packaging facilities, and related services and equipment.
