Port Tour (2.00pm - 4.30pm)
Year-end Networking (4.30pm - 8.00pm)

You are invited

to join us and members of the Australian Chamber of International Trade in this unique port tour and year-end networking event.

The Port of Melbourne is one of Victoria's most important pieces of economic infrastructure.  With the upcoming privatisation and debate about a possible second container port, it is a timely opportunity to tour the Port by boat and to get up to speed with the trade and business implications.

Returning to land and the Port of Melbourne Education Centre, the year-end function begins where you will hear from Jim Beggs, author of "Proud to be a Wharfie".

The day will finish up at Pier 35 Bar & Grill for casual networking with members of AMBC and ACIT.  Food and beverages will be served, as we reflect on 2015 and look forward to 2016.
