The Port Center : Step-by-step operational guide
Port Centers provide the public, initiated or not, with the possibility to discover, experience and understand better contemporary port activities. This is possible thanks to a dedicated exposition and different educational animations, as well as the organization of adapted on-site visits in the port area.
Given the rising interest of AIVP port city members in the Port Center concept and the importance to keep in line with its Mission Charter, AIVP started to develop a guide and different accompanying approaches already experienced in these last years. The goal of this new document is to answer the initial questions that might come up when developing the concept.

The guide is based on data, experiences and best practices gathered by AIVP over the last decade together with the partners of the Port Center Network but also with other leading institutions in the field of social integration of ports.
In this publication the developers will get the knowledge the AIVP can transmit structured in a user friendly way, completed with examples, data sheets, links and key-questions that will help in the first stages of the process.
The Port Center Concept is the continuity of the concrete implementation of a sustainable port-city relationship. Thus, based on its 30 years experiences of know-how and best practices exchanges, AIVP decided to play an active role in its growth and the diffusion of its message.
