The Maritime Capital of Europe.

Rotterdam has always held tremendous attraction for pioneers and market leaders in the maritime industry. Due to its location on the North Sea, and surrounded by three rivers, this city has maritime knowledge and expertise in its blood. Together with the Drecht Cities, all kinds of maritime technology and solutions that did not previously exist have been developed here throughout the centuries. Rotterdam is the hub of Europe in respect of energy and industry. It is a city with infinite ambition that attracts businesses and keeps them here.

Its maritime industry is flourishing thanks to its top-quality port infrastructure. This world-famous port boasts leading maritime commercial service providers, shipbuilders and offshore companies. It has access to the very best talent and it has its own innovative ecosystem. Rotterdam is the Gateway to Europe and the stepping-stone to the whole world.

The combination of maritime business services in Rotterdam and the manufacturing industry in the Drecht Cities has transformed this area into a top-quality international region. And we can reinforce our competitive position even more if we work together. This will enable us to continue attracting the best businesses and the most talented people.

The Municipality of Rotterdam, Port of Rotterdam Authority, the Drecht Cities (Alblasserdam, Dordrecht, Hardinxveld-Giessendam, Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, Papendrecht, Sliedrecht and Zwijndrecht) and CEOs from prominent players in the Rotterdam and Drecht Cities maritime industry all joined forces in mid-2017, to put the sector even more firmly on the map in the Netherlands and abroad. As ‘Maritime Capital of Europe’, Rotterdam leads the field in terms of smart and sustainable maritime services: a global city that attracts people and businesses and keeps them here.

The initiative for putting Rotterdam even more firmly on the map is led by the Rotterdam Maritime Board, which also provides assistance in this regard. This Board’s members are 35 CEOs from leading maritime businesses and trade associations in Rotterdam and the Drecht Cities, and its technical president is Ms Mai Elmar.

City life

Rotterdam is a city with tremendous character. The city is dynamic and ever-changing, just as the Nieuwe Maas (New Meuse) is a powerful symbol of continuous movement. The city of Rotterdam and its people are never afraid to experiment. In fact, we’re more likely to go looking for it. It’s a city where the Make it Happen mentality can be seen and felt. It boasts parties that go for Rotterdam and give their own interpretation of Rotterdam’s spirit and ‘can do’ mentality, no matter whether they’re residents, visitors, students or business people.
