International conference "Grain elevators: new projects, equipment, and technologies", organised by the publishing house "Ports of Ukraine" on the 25th of November, is focused on the interests of ports and stevedoring companies.


Participation is essential not only for port specialists but also for those who use terminal services, participate in supplying and reloading grain by sea and river transport. It is unlikely that grain traders, equipment manufacturers, transport workers, everyone interested in providing or receiving services in this area will find another event where they can communicate with so many port operators.

The conference organisers set themselves the task of telling about the prospects for the development of port capacities in Ukraine for the grain and oilseed export market, showing possible non-standard technological and technical solutions.

Within the framework of the National Maritime Rating of Ukraine, following work results in the past Marketing Year, the awarding of stevedoring companies of Ukraine, carrying out grain transshipment, in the nominations "Grain Terminal of the Year" and "Growth Rates" will take place.

At the conference, owners and top managers of leading terminals and companies will share their successful practical experience introducing innovations, sharing their business development models, and discussing the latest market trends.
