Port of Blyth Head for BPA Conference

Port of Blyth is taking part in the BPA Conference this week, hosted by Belfast Harbour.

The annual British Ports Association Conference 2019 welcomes industry partners and key stakeholders to catch up with all the latest policy and industry trends in the UK ports.

Port of Blyth Chief Executive and current BPA Chair Martin Lawlor, said: “Port of Blyth are looking forward to taking part in the full conference programme with new opportunities for British ports such as the latest round of CfD’s in the wind sector high on the agenda alongside obvious and timely discussions around Brexit. We look forward to meeting with our fellow UK ports and to supporting the progress of the sector through the conference.”

Also at the conference will be the Port of Blyth’s award winning training arm Port Training Services, with a stand in the exhibition area at Titanic Belfast.

Colin Bassam, Training Manager at PTS, said: “Working up and down the country with ports of all shapes and sizes, we recognise the safety and skills challenges the sector faces, particularly in light of the current situation regarding Brexit. We have a wide range of vocational courses and apprenticeship porgrammes to enhance the safety of port operatives and look forward to discussing these opportunties with delegates at the conference.”
