NBIS is excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at Breakbulk Americas 2021.
Breakbulk Americas, the region’s largest trade event for the project cargo and breakbulk industry, returns this fall to the George R. Brown Center in Houston on September 28-30, 2021. It is the first Breakbulk event to open its doors to the industry since the shutdown of March 2020.
Breakbulk Americas attracts industry professionals from Canada, Mexico, U.S., Central and South Americas. Breakbulk is also committed to fueling the next generation of transport and logistics professionals, and 2021 presents an unprecedented need to attract young people to the industry. The event series seeks to foster and facilitate connections between all people involved in the logistics and transport of project and breakbulk cargoes.
Event organizers point out that the event will be an unprecedented reunion of leading companies across the industrial supply chain, gathering in one place to network, hear emerging trends and seize project cargo opportunities to build success for the coming year.
In addition to providing outstanding networking opportunities and programming, Breakbulk has made it a top priority to hold a safe event. A new virtual studio inside the event facility will make it possible for speakers to present remotely if travel restrictions or other considerations necessitate, and the space can be used to host in-person panels as well. Additionally, significant safety enhancements have been made at the facility.
According to John Solis, Senior Vice President of Sales & Client Services at the GRB, the George R. Brown Convention Center is the first facility in the world to deploy the Integrated Viral Protection (IVP) system. This is the world’s first biodefense filtration technology proven to eliminate SARS-CoV-2 (99.999%) and other airborne contaminants, and was recently awarded the 2020 Emerging Technology Award by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
We commend the extra steps taken to help ensure the safest possible event experience, and look forward to participating in this year’s event.
