Three packed days. 2.500 transport industry players and policy makers gathered to exchange ideas at the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam.

TEN-T Days 2016

June 19-22, 2016 — Rotterdam, Netherlands


How to facilitate dialogue between 2.500 transport industry players and policy makers, 22 ministers of transport and 4 European Commissioners, in only a few days?

TEN-T Days is a major transport conference focused on the development of the Trans-European Transport Network organised by the Directorate-General of Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) of the European Commission. The 2016 edition in Rotterdam was hosted in cooperation with the Netherlands and addressed the development, implementation and financing of various transport networks in Europe. Three days were packed with parallel conference sessions, high-level meetings and official ceremonies.

Cecoforma was responsible for the entire logistical organisation of the TEN-T Days 2016 at the unique historic Van Nelle Factory. We created a visual identity for and promoted the event, registered and welcomed participants, provided technical and catering facilities, and coordinated with protocol and security services to ensure that the many high-level sessions ran smoothly and securely.

The strength of our tight-knit team allowed us to surmount a formidable challenge: a large number of participants, many high-level sessions to manage in parallel and complex transportation logistics.

Our small, hardworking group choreographed a spectacular event on a grand scale.

The multi-faceted event revolved around innovation. An indoor exhibition featured more than 100 different transport projects and initiatives, while an outdoor display provided participants with the opportunity to test drive alternative fuel vehicles.

Impeccably executed VIP events included a lunch for 30 people hosted by EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc. Over 1.700 participants also enjoyed a spectacular gala dinner on the legendary ship the SS Rotterdam.
