Welcome to the highly anticipated The 2024 POWERS Summit & Expo. This year, we gather passionate industry leaders and professionals from around the globe to explore the dynamic intersection of energy, resilience, and sustainability within the port industry. Join us in Tampa as we embark on a transformative journey that merges sustainability and profitability to create a world where ports thrive amidst global challenges. Together, we can chart a course towards a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow.

This summit promises to be an exhilarating journey towards unlocking the boundless potential of ports as key drivers of sustainable economic growth. With the world's climate becoming increasingly unpredictable, we recognize the urgent need for resilient and eco-friendly port operations. By bringing together visionaries, policymakers, and industry experts, we aim to forge collaborative solutions that can propel the port industry forward into a future of sustainability and prosperity.
