Ports and shipping businesses and suppliers to meet on board latest P&O ferry, 9th February 2012

Ports and shipping businesses and suppliers are invited to meet on board the latest P&O ferry "Spirit of France" as she sails between Calais and Dover on Thursday 9 February 2012.

The European Interreg IV 2 Seas programme project PATCH (Ports Adapting To CHange) brings together a number of ports in the UK, France, Belgium and The Netherlands to share innovative environmental practices in port related matters.

With assistance from P&O Ferries, the Port of Calais is organising a one day business to business event on the theme of "Eco-innovation in infrastructures and logistics for the future". This event will take place during a return crossing of the ferry 'Spirit of France' between Calais and Dover.

The day commences at 0930 at the Port of Calais ferry terminal prior to embarkation on to the ship. There will be a presentation and discussion on eco-innovation in ports, followed by an opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services.

Relevant port and shipping related businesses based in the South East are particularly welcome to take part in this event in order to meet possible partners and customers in northwest Europe. A light lunch will be served during the crossing with time for networking. An optional one hour visit of the Port of Calais will follow at 1530 for those who are interested.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Howard Holt at

There is no cost for business representatives to register, which can be achieved via the 'news' section of the website of the port of Calais:
