Breakbulk Americas 2020 Will Take Place November 3-5, 2020

Breakbulk Americas has been rescheduled for November 3-5, 2020 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The new dates are due to the move of Breakbulk Europe from its time slot in late May to the end of September. 

“We needed to move these two events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented crisis that has affected everyone,” Nick Davison, Portfolio Director for Breakbulk and CWEIME events, Hyve Group said. “Breakbulk Americas was the last piece of the puzzle to fall into place so we could deliver a full suite of Breakbulk events this year. “

“Our aim was to minimize disruption and make it as easy as possible for our customers to participate in both Breakbulk Europe and Breakbulk Americas under safe conditions.” 

Breakbulk Americas will now be held in Halls A and B at the north end of the GRB Convention Center. Revised hotel accommodations for the new dates will be released shortly. 

“Our team is grateful for the assistance from Visit Houston in helping us to find a solution,” Jamie Reesby, Event Director for Breakbulk Americas said. “It’s an inspiring example of our community collaborating in the throes of a crisis to keep this event, a mainstay of the project cargo and breakbulk industry, on track. I’m looking forward to seeing the industry come together as we enter the fourth decade of Breakbulk Americas.”

Breakbulk Europe to Return to Bremen in 2021

Breakbulk Europe, the world’s largest event for the project cargo and breakbulk industry, will return to Bremen, Germany, for the fourth consecutive year in 2021 at Messe Bremen from 18-20 May.

“It’s a great pleasure to be returning to Bremen in 2021, a city that has gone above and beyond to welcome breakbulk and project cargo professionals from more than 3800 companies,” Nick Davison, Portfolio Director for Breakbulk and CWEIME events, Hyve Group (formerly ITE Group) said. “The city of Bremen has proved to be a good fit for the Breakbulk attendees with its unique blend of historical charm, modern amenities, maritime environment and visitor affordability.”

Breakbulk Europe has grown significantly since the move to Bremen in 2018, and with over 120 countries represented, its reach embraces the world. Exhibitors at the 2019 event overwhelmingly demonstrated their satisfaction with Breakbulk Europe, Messe Bremen and the city itself, by rebooking 89 percent of exhibition space for 2020 by the end of the show. Along with many repeat exhibitors, the 2020 edition will feature 70 new companies, such as Sarens, CEVA Logistics, DP World, and Airbus, who has chosen Breakbulk Europe to promote their Beluga XL aircraft.

“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.”

The 2021 announcement comes three months before the opening of Breakbulk Europe 2020, and already the indicators point to another success. Online registration is tracking 13 percent ahead compared to this time last year. A strong lineup of partnerships has been secured, including companies for each of the three content areas: Masters Arena by Aurelis Real Estate Service, Main Stage by Port of Gdańsk and Tech & Innovation Hub by Erhardt. New to the 2020 experience will be a pair of professional workshops focused on risk management and chartering essentials, Education Day for local students and those new or looking to enter the industry, and the first Europe-based Women in Breakbulk breakfast, part of Breakbulk’s global networking platform for female professionals.
