【NL】BREAKBULK EUROPE 2022 will take place 17-19 May at Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre

Join the World in Rotterdam


In 2022, Breakbulk Europe exhibition & conference will be held in Rotterdam. It is something the united forces of Rotterdam Ahoy, Rotterdam Partners, the Municipality of Rotterdam, Rotterdam Port Promotion Council and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have been working towards for years. The arrival of the event in Rotterdam will be a great boost to the city, the port and the region as a whole.



Breakbulk Europe is moving to Rotterdam in 2022, and after a two-year break due to the pandemic, enthusiasm for the world’s largest project cargo and breakbulk event has reached new heights with many of the biggest names in the business committed to exhibiting at our new venue Rotterdam Ahoy.


Breakbulk Europe has become the global gathering for the industry with more than 120 countries represented.  Exhibitors and sponsors include cargo owners, ocean carriers, freight forwarders, ports/terminals, heavy haulers, equipment companies and more that are involved in this specialized industry. The parallel conferences will take place on two stages: the Main Stage and the Innovation Stage, complemented by an all-new Discovery Zone in Hall 1. The program is being driven by the Breakbulk Europe Advisory Board, an exceptional group of leaders from across the supply chain.


Breakbulk Hub



In 2020, Rotterdam handled over six million tonnes of breakbulk. “Rotterdam is well known for its specialisation in the heavy-lift and breakbulk sector. We can handle any vessel, of any size and any type. That is why we are seen as the most versatile general breakbulk hub”, said Levenswaard. “There is a good reason why our slogan is “Bigger Better Breakbulk”. I’m looking forward to welcoming our international associates.”




10,000 Professionals


Following the cancellations of the 2020 and 2021 exhibitions, Breakbulk Europe will be held in Rotterdam Ahoy next year and, in all likelihood, in 2023 too.’ The exhibition is hosted in the six large halls that are all connected to each other. All international visitors are welcomed in the impressive new entrance of the building.


Nick Davison, Breakbulk & CWIEME Portfolio Director at Hyve Group PLC says, “We are excited to work with the Rotterdam alliance, to create a fresh event with new business opportunities for all participants. The exhibition is normally attended by 10,000 professionals from over 120 countries. It is an expo for the industry, offshore wind, oil and gas companies, carriers, ports, logistics companies, specialised freight forwarders and other associated service providers.”



The 2022 event brings an unprecedented opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, new business partners and project cargo decision-makers. We look forward to seeing you in Rotterdam, 17-19 May 2022.
