AntwerpXL 2022 declared ‘a roaring success’

Hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of delegates from the international breakbulk community descended on the home of European breakbulk for AntwerpXL 2022.

The event, which was held at the Antwerp Expo, Antwerp on October 4-6 2022, welcomed representatives from the biggest names in forwarding and logistics as they gained insight into the trends, challenges and opportunities facing the industry, strengthened existing relationships, and, critically, struck up new partnerships.

Visitor Istvan De Laat, Antwerp Slitter, said: “We’ve entered, walked less than a few meters and already met four new prospects!”

Another visitor, Andrei Zyryanov, PACE Forwarding, said: “The business cards I have in my pocket are all Managing Director, CEO, COO, and so on.  Decisions are made here.”

Exhibitor, Erik Adriaenssens, managing director, Boeckmans, said: “I’ve been impressed with the quality of attendants and the contents of the exhibition, everyone here is really into shipping!”

Rikki Bhachu, head of marketing at AntwerpXL, added: “Antwerp is the heart of breakbulk, and AntwerpXL is the key event of the year.  It’s hard to put into words the incredibly positive energy we’ve had all throughout the exhibition and conference, and next year will be bigger and better!”

AntwerpXL will return in 2023.
