PFI Port Finance Summit 2019

PFI Port Finance Summit 2019

Port Finance International (PFI) and Maritime & Transport Business Solutions (MTBS) announce the launch of the new Port Finance Summit Istanbul 2019, to be held on January 31st 2019 at the Palais d’Hollande in Istanbul. The Summit is kindly hosted by Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Istanbul and supported by Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RGST).


Investment in the transport sector, and in particular in ports and terminals, has been steadily moving from greenfield activity and towards M&A – with global interest growing thanks to robust attributes and a steady flow of new opportunities.

As the marine terminal industry reshuffles, the focus continues to be on creating better and integrated infrastructure. High prices - especially for ports infrastructure assets – mean new and broader sources of investment and funding are becoming available – such as equity financing options, sovereign funds and governments. Add to this a continuing growth of interest in strategically important port assets

The re-designed annual PFI Port Finance Summit will bring together all those involved in ports and terminal acquisition and divestment, with peers, clients and prospects under one roof enabling deal making and business opportunities. As the only international platform designed to bring the port industry’s C-level executives together to facilitate top tier networking, discussion and to explore and forge profitable business opportunities, the aim of the Port Investment Summit will be to forge profitable business opportunities and relationships.

With diverse perspectives from international port investors, project developers, buyers and sellers of port assets, this one-day Summit will provide buyers and sellers with the opportunity to discuss ongoing and upcoming projects – through keynote speeches and panel forums, roundtable sessions, a networking lunch, drinks reception and a Gala Dinner to round off the day’s discussions.

Istanbul represents the ideal location to host this new PFI Port Investment Summit. Firstly, as the birthplace of PFI in 2010 since when PFI has had fantastic support from industry leaders such as Turkish Chanmber of Shipping, Turklim, Ministry of Transport & Infrastructure, Arkas, Yildirim, Safi, APMT, Poliport, DP World, EBRD, Garanti Bank, Akfen, Raiffeisen, and many more. Additionally, with superb connections to the rest of the world, a strong global presence from leading asset owners and investors is expected.
