Five AIVP members shortlisted for the ESPO Award 2017
Thirteen high-quality proposals were debated by the Jury of the 9th ESPO Award (European Sea Ports Organisation), an annual honour given in recognition of a port authority that has demonstrated a genuine and original commitment to reforging links with its local communities. This year, the European Sea Ports Organisation highlighted the theme of art and culture as a vector for promoting commitment.
Five of the thirteen proposals were shortlisted by the Jury, including projects submitted by the ports of Antwerp, Brest, Oslo, Guadeloupe and Venice. The AIVP, which is represented on the Jury, is delighted with the shortlist of nominees, all of whom are also members of our network, further evidence that societal integration remains a vital aspect of city-port relations. The winner of the 9th ESPO Award will be announced on 8 November 2017 at the ceremony in Brussels.
