About the event.

The local community, staff and their families are invited to enjoy a day of exhibitions from port partners, interactive stands and behind-the-scenes access to port operations.

Open from 10am – 4pm, the open day will showcase:

  • What the maritime industry does for Portsmouth
  • Maritime skills, jobs and future roles
  • Protecting the maritime and port environment

Portsmouth International Port, along with Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries and neighbouring cargo terminal Portico, became a lifeline operation during the pandemic. They helped keep Great Britain supplied with food, energy and medicine, with port staff recognised as key workers for their service.

The port want to celebrate the dedication of their staff and those of the port’s partners, and create awareness of the huge variety of jobs that are available within the maritime sector.

Portico will be bringing a wide range of their impressive cargo handling equipment over to the port for interactive demonstrations, and the port’s biggest customer, Brittany Ferries, will be on-hand to talk about their innovative new LNG and hybrid ships that will be serving the city in the coming years.

There will also be panel discussions, stands from the port’s partners, a range of interesting vessels alongside and also activities for the kids. Refreshments will be available from the port’s cafe, Ceanos.

The open day is part of Maritime UK Week 2022, which  will shine a spotlight on the latest developments in the maritime sector and engage people across the UK with the world of maritime. 

Responsible for enabling 95% of the UK’s global trade, maritime touches every part of our lives. As we move toward a greener industry, the sector is investing and growing all around the UK and needs talented people to join us. Held between Monday 10 October and Sunday 16 October, people around the country are invited to explore the world of maritime through a series of careers fairs and open days.
