Maybe you already know the answer. Maybe not. 

Share and learn during Port Days!

Tomorrow, June 10, a panel of esteemed industry leaders will be sharing their insight on Atlantic Canada’s place on the global shipping map. 

This business session, part of Port Saint John’s annual Port Days networking and business development event, is free and open to the public. Port Days is presented by platinum sponsor Mediterranean Shipping Company.

The event begins at 9 a.m. in the Loyalist Room of the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre.
