Europort is much more than an international shipping and maritime event – it is the vibrant hub of the latest cutting-edge technology, complex shipbuilding, and a global meeting place.

With an impressive line-up of 1,040 exhibiting companies from 43 countries, it is no surprise that an average of 25,000 maritime professionals visit the event every edition to share knowledge and create new opportunities.

But that’s not all – Europort is also dedicated to fostering young companies and ideas, offering an area tailored to those striving for smarter, innovative, and sharper solutions.

So let us ask you these questions: Are you a maritime innovator looking to make a mark in the industry? Are you an aspiring entrepreneur with a vision for the future of maritime? Are you eager to showcase your own cutting-edge ideas and insights?

Then MARPRO and Europort have something special for you – The Rising Stars Pavilion!

Here, you’ll have a unique platform designed to provide a fair opportunity to present your solutions to a wide global audience at an affordable price.

Caring about start-ups

It’s no secret that the maritime industry is in a state of constant change, and to keep up with the pace it sometimes calls for trailblazing collaborations.

To promote and foster the constant change in the maritime industry, the MARPRO Group, an acclaimed global recruitment specialist in shipping and maritime, is proud to, for the consecutive year, join forces with Europort and provide the Rising Stars platform to support the maritime industry leaders of tomorrow by giving them a fair chance to join the conversation today.

The first edition of the Rising Stars took place back in Europort 2021 and was a resounding success – one we are looking to replicate in the second edition.

Jakob le Fevre, Managing Director of MARPRO says: “I have started several companies in the maritime industry. It is always hard to start-up a new company, but the global aspect of the maritime industry makes it even more challenging. I would have loved this concept when I started up in the past – so this is our way to give back to the community we are a part of.”
