Rotterdam Partners - US Maritime Networking Day - Rotterdam Maritime Services Community - RMSC

Rotterdam Partners co-hosts Dutch-US Maritime Networking Day

On Wednesday 12 April Rotterdam will welcome The Maritime Alliance (TMA) from San Diego CA (USA) for the Dutch – US Maritime Networking Day at the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam. This networking event is all about fostering collaboration between Dutch and US companies in the maritime industry, and finding distributors, channel partners, and/or technology partners. Rotterdam Partners and Innovation Quarter are jointly supporting this event in Rotterdam.

You can be there to meet the delegation of innovative US SMEs, interested in collaboration with European companies!

Home to one of the largest ports in the world, the maritime industry is traditionally one of the key business sectors in Rotterdam, centre of unique knowledge and skills around shipping, cargo flows and related activities. The maritime industry in San Diego is also large, bringing in more than $14 billion a year with more than 46,000 jobs. And the U.S. maritime industry is massive with many sectors. TMA was chosen by the U.S. Department of Commerce to organize the 1st ever U.S. Maritime Technology Export Initiative. A visit to the Netherlands is part of the program.
