THE 5th WORLD PORT HACKATHON
After four successful editions of the World Port Hackathon, it is time to celebrate our first lustrum! 24-hours of vibrant energy, innovation, collaboration, and above all fun will again be present in the fifth edition of the World Port Hackathon! This year, the first World Port Hackathon Conference will be organized to put innovation to its limits and get even more inspired.
THE WORLD PORT CONFERENCE
The WPH2017 will start with a World Port Hackathon Conference. The Conference offers our partners the possibility to connect perspectives, share knowledge, and explore opportunities together with the hackers. Inspire and be inspired!

The World Port Hackathon & Conference is the place where talented people, rising technologies, and experts from the port community collaborate and share their passion. We provide the right stage to develop promising ideas. Take a look at the previous editions to feel the energy!
Where innovation comes to life!
The World Port Hackathon
Level up… World Port Hackathon 2017 Challenges
Do more with less: that’s the challenge of the coming years! Within the port extensive logistical systems, networks and operations have been created over time. We have built immense infrastructures where growth has been the main driver of change. We used, and are currently using, a lot of resources which are not sustainable in the long run. The real challenge: We need to improve current systems to make it sustainable in its broadest sense. The right insights are required to foster ‘smart’ port activities.
Data, technology: we have it all. We are looking for the people with the knowledge and mind-set to collaboratively crack this puzzle.
What we try to do at the Hackathon is to bring all those young, bright, enthusiastic people into contact with the complex port environment that they do not know.
If we work together as a port sector, as a maritime sector, we can achieve some steps in the right direction and contribute to a better environment.
The World Port Hackathon drives change in the whole industry.
If you want to compete and accel in ports, collaboration is key. Eventually, it is the right scene that provides the right innovations.
We believe that these young people at the WPH have the skills to challenge us to do good stuff, especially in proving how technology can help the logistic processes.
I see lots of creative people, I see people with lots of energy, putting up creative ideas not being afraid to challenge the way things are currently done.
24-hours ago we knew nothing about ports, and the port of Rotterdam. Now we built something that people who have worked here for years might actually find useful, and that’s amazing!
We came up with 4 ideas last 24-hours. We didn’t really know the port world until 24-hours ago. So that’s why it took us a few ideas to iterate on something that is truly unique.
Just to sit here at the World Port Hackathon and think about problems for once was really fun!
Before the World Port Hackathon I had a little chat about possible ideas and on the Hackathon, we actually kind of make it work!
I like to learn what all the teams have been building, there is a huge diversity of the teams participating in the Hackathon. Let’s build new relationships.
It is an era of change, every organisation is going to search for the limits to be more efficient and more sustainable.
At the WPH we are looking for possibilities to provide nautical information in an easy system for navigational purposes in our port.
The first World Port Hackathon was held five years ago, and this time we celebrate our lustrum with a World Port Hackathon… and Conference!
Explore the inner-workings of leading technology and port companies, and meet fellow attendees in an intimate, interactive setting. Keynotes, masterclasses, presentations from experts; it will all be there!
Let's co-create the port of the future!
