Over 100 delegates from project logistics companies across the globe met for one-on-one business meetings and social networking events. Participants heard presentations from several specialist suppliers including Hansa Heavy Lift, the Port of Barcelona, Air Charter Service and Rickmers-Linie.

Brian Majerus, head of WCA’s specialist networks, commented: “By reaching out to trusted partners around the world WCA Projects members have created a way of securing prestigious medium and large project contracts that used to be the preserve of the multinationals.”
