Portfolio director Nick Davison said: “We are committed to bringing a world-class event to this industry that is critical to the world’s economy,” Davison said. “As we move further into this decade, we will consider alternate locations for 2022 and beyond to deliver new markets and fresh thinking, but for now, Bremen is the right choice and we would not hesitate to return in the future.”

Breakbulk Europe is one of four global events, along with Breakbulk Middle East in Dubai, 25-26 February 2020, Breakbulk Asia in Shanghai, 18-19 March and Breakbulk Americas in Houston, 29 September-1 October. 2020.
