Following on from the huge success of CTAC North America 2023,
PTI will be returning to Virginia, USA with its biggest event so far!

Join us in Virginia, USA, in November 2024, where we will have the honour of presenting the first-ever Port Technology Summit!

After two successful launches in North America last year, the Container Terminal Automation Conference and Smart Digital Ports Conference will combine to create a brand-new three-day flagship North American summit for ports and terminals. The summit will present CTAC mainstay topics, such as equipment, automation, and optimization, alongside popular themes from the SDP conference, including digitalization, sustainability, and collaboration.

Bringing together our global community of C-level industry professionals from ports, terminals, and technology solution providers, PTS North America boasts three days of exclusive keynotes and insightful panel discussions on the industry’s key challenges and developments.

A variety of networking opportunities, including an Opening Ceremony and Gala Dinners, will also be available, designed to enhance your event experience and connect you with the people who are vital to the development of your business and increasing industry awareness. 

With an extended agenda, larger conference and exhibition spaces, more attendees than ever before, and high-quality service for all participants, we invite you to be a part of the celebration of our industry-leading events.

As with all PTI events, our primary goal is to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing within the industry, which will assist with achieving business objectives, overcome challenges and allow you to become part of a greater success story within an industry that is pivotal to the global economy. 

We are excited to meet you this fall for the first of many Port Technology Summits, the new home of knowledge sharing, technology and networking in the North American port and terminal sector.
