The theme of the 2017 World Port Days was announced on the Dag van de Haven (‘Port Day’). This anniversary edition, which will be held on 1, 2, and 3 September, will have the theme Werelds! (‘Worldwide!’). The organization also announced that KPN will join the World Port Days as a connectivity partner.
What once started as the one-day event Maritiem ’78 has since grown into the Netherlands’ largest annual maritime festival, which welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors over the course of three full days. In 2017, World Port Days will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a party of global proportions!
During the World Port Days, visitors will enjoy the convenience of ICT and connectivity partner KPN, which is affiliated with the event. Several free Wi-Fi hotspots will be created and ‘reload and relax’ areas will be set up, offering visitors a comfortable place to charge their phones for free. In addition, KPN will help the World Port Days intensify their social media presence.
