The Event

Panama Maritime XIV World Conference & Exhibition will be held from 17 to 20 March 2019 at the Megapolis Convention Centre in Panama City, Panama. The Conference has been held every two years since twenty-eight years ago! –as a visionary project of the Maritime Law Association of Panama and the Maritime Chamber of Panama.

Since 1991, the Conference has grown into a world-class international full-fledged trade conference and exhibition covering all maritime sectors including infrastructure, port, logistics, particularly agro-logistics and shipping –with emphasis on legal issues affecting those areas, as well as business opportunities for Panama and the region.

Earlier editions of Panama Maritime, particularly 2015 and 2017, attracted a record number of participants and international speakers, with an impressive number of issues analysed in round table discussions or as stand-alone presentations. The Exhibit also attracted a record number of businesses interested in promoting their products and services.

The 2019 theme for Panama Maritime XII is "Panama: Changing Global Trade Dynamics -Leading Supply Chain Logistics in the Region." This is, by far, one of the most important issues in the region and certainly in Panama, where technological advances in logistical services has been included, along with tourism, agro-industries, mining and energy, as one of the pillars of Panama´s economic development for the next decades.
