All Day

We are delighted to release the dates for our 2023 AGM, the first in-person meeting on the PEMA event calendar for next year.

The AGM will take place in Hamburg, Germany, on April 25th & 26th, at the Hotel Atlantic Hamburg.

2022 seen the return of PEMA personally engage with our members and key industry stakeholders by providing a unique forum for open public dialogue on the issues that will shape the future of our industry. The Annual General Meeting not only provides an opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the past year, but also forces us to look to the future.

PEMA AGM Schedule

The 2 day event will begin on Tue 25th with a Boat Tour of the Port of Hamburg. Pick up and drop off will be organised to and from the Hotel Atlantic Hamburg.

Once we return from the site visit, lunch will be provided in the hotel before we gather for an afternoon of Technical Committee Meetings.

On Tuesday evening, a drinks reception will be held in the hotel bar for participants from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM. Participants can enjoy this free time to make their own dinner reservations to catch up with colleagues and friends – we recommend booking in advance as Hamburg is a busy place!

The official AGM will take place on Wednesday, April 26th, with registration from 9:00 AM CET. The morning will consist of PEMA technical, administration, marketing, and financial activity updates, as well as the election of Board Members.

After a buffet lunch, delegates can look forward to hearing from a panel of key-note speakers that are well established in the industry such as:

  • Karsten Behrens (SAL Engineering)
  • Leticia Astudillo (Drewry Maritime Advisors)
  • Luisa Kempf (EUROGATE)
  • Ulf Bockelmann (HHLA)
  • Christian Klaus (COSCO Shipping Europe)
