Last June 21 – 24, one of the best known sport events in Rotterdam took place, the ‘Concours Hippique International Officiel’ – in Rotterdam known as the CHIO. The CHIO Rotterdam has cooperated closely with the maritime sector from the start of the event in the 1940s. The port and the CHIO Rotterdam are therefore inseparably linked.
The members of the RMSC were invited to join at the CHIO Port Club, on the Thursday evening, where we saw “international Jumping 1.45m two phases” contest. Although it was so busy, that not everybody has had time for the contest. The network of the CHIO Port Club grew immensely, so there was more than enough opportunity to talk to the people you haven’t seen in a while or get to know new acquaintances.
After the opening speech of the alderman Visser, where he pointed again to the importance of the Rotterdam network of maritime and logistics services, we saw the signing of the agreement between the Port of Rotterdam Authority and CHIO for another three years of cooperation. The RMSC will surely be involved in the network of both organisations and the Municipality of Rotterdam. With half of the members of RMSC present at the CHIO, it was a successful event and we look forward to the next event, which will be the Summerevent on Wednesday, August 29.
