Smart Ports Russia, a conference on the modernization of ports and terminals, will take place on March 24, 2021. JŪRA MOPE SEA will provide information support to the event that will be held in a hybrid format: in Moscow at the five-star Marriott Moscow Grand Hotel and online - for all participants and speakers who will not be able to attend the event in person. The conference will be attended by Russian and foreign port representatives, cargo owners, carriers, logistics experts and companies from related industries. Representatives of ports and terminals from five countries will present their reports on the best modernization practices, discuss technological innovations, and share experience in their application.

“We plan to cover the topic of innovations applied in ports from a practical point of view: we will not talk about the implementation of “innovations for the sake of innovations”, but we will discuss how to get the economic effect from the use of “smart” technologies in sea, river and dry ports and terminals: using figures, facts and examples”, - Maxim Vorontsov, Head of the Organizing Committee of Smart Ports Russia 2021.

The speakers who will take part in the conference are practitioners working in ports in different parts of Europe and Russia; they know all niceties of the port business, are ready to share their experience in modernization - both share positive experience and tell about "hidden pitfalls".
