Organized every two years, the World Conferences of AIVP gather between 400 and 600 participants. The World Conferences are intended for port and urban decision-makers (elected representatives and technical experts), researchers and academics, as well as economical and institutional partners of the port areas’ development. These conferences have for main objectives to develop some practices and know-how but also to be a showcase of port’s projects or realizations, to exchange experiences between decision-makers and other economic actors for the ports’ development, to increase institutional and public authorities’ awareness of the main assets of the port area and finally, to reinforce transversal exchanges between the various decision-makers in order to initiate consultation and new working methods.

AIVP is the only worldwide network which for over 25 years, has been providing a meeting point for city and port players and their partners. AIVP has been privileged to witness on-going changes in cities and ports all over the world.
