An AIVP benchmark to support the growth of the cruise business in Le Havre

Denis DAVOULT9 October 2018

The cruise business has grown steadily in Le Havre in recent years. Local stakeholders – including the Port, the City, the local conurbation authority, Office of Tourism, Chamber of Commerce, CRITT Transport & logistics – have committed to a joint process of reflection looking ahead to the period 2020-2025. The aim is to create the conditions for sustainable development for this dynamic activity, and make the area where cruise liners berth a new point of attraction for the city and port of Le Havre, open to the local population and visitors alike.

They approached AIVP to produce a benchmark that can be used to identify practices and solutions adopted to promote the spatial integration of cruise terminals in the city, and open them up to the public, in both the high and low seasons for cruise activity.

Port of Quebec: building for the future with citizens

Denis DAVOULT16 April 2018

In June, the Port of Quebec will host AIVP’s 16th World Conference. The event will also mark the thirtieth anniversary of AIVP’s creation, and the “Next Generation” will be at the heart of the debate. How is the future of the Port of Quebec being shaped? What are the four major projects now seen as key to its future and that of the city’s residents?

At AIVP’s World Conference in 2012, Mario Girard, President & CEO of the Port of Quebec and Vice-President of AIVP, emphasised the importance of developing port projects in complete transparency, involving citizens and the local community. This focus on dialogue between the city, port and citizens also led the Port of Quebec, in 2016, to sign the Port Center Missions Charter and join the AIVP Port Center network. The four projects described here perfectly illustrate this commitment to building the future of the port city of Quebec together, as part of an inclusive approach. Our 16th World Conference will no doubt afford an opportunity for a first-hand look at this strategy for a Next Generation port city.

The Port of Quebec is a member of AIVP since 2011
