About CONNECT

With CONNECT, we are building a bridge between the technology and port worlds by actively networking with players and organisations from both worlds. Our goal is to promote personal exchange and encourage cross-domain collaboration for the maritime innovation ecosystem and the port of the future. We provide a platform for innovations that have the potential to impact the port world or, conversely, to be taken from the port to the world.
At the heart of CONNECT is our annual deep-tech festival HOMECOMING HOMEPORT, which we organise in cooperation with AUFBRUCH.Hamburg. This is where the homePORT community comes together in a relaxed atmosphere to present and experience new technologies and solutions, gain new impulses, make valuable contacts and also to celebrate their ongoing innovation efforts. Whether as an exhibitor, panellist or visitor - HOMECOMING offers you a unique opportunity to network with exciting innovators from business, science, politics and society.
