Invite to business social during IJmuiden Port Festival

We are pleased to invite you to join our business social gathering on the evening before the IJmuiden Port Festival on the majestic tall ship Morgenster on Friday 24 June 2022 from 16.00 to 18.00.

Port Festival IJmuiden
This year’s IJmuiden Port Festival will take place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June during which the Trawlerkade will revolve around ports, fisheries and art & culture. The organisers are revitalising the festival this year: the COVID pandemic did not diminish activities in the region, with many new companies moving to the IJmond and lots of new cultural initiatives being established in the last three years.

Networks meet
The business social is jointly organised by Port Festival IJmuiden, Techport, OV IJmond, IJPOS and Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports (AYOP)
 The organisers of Port Festival IJmuiden have connected various company networks from the region to kick start this year’s event in style.

he business social will take place on Morgenster. Originally launched as Vrouwe Maria, the brig was used for fishing in the North Sea. She was equipped with her first engine in 1928 and extended and remeasured in 1947. Renamed Morgenster in 1959, she was mainly used for sports fishing and as a radio vessel for radio station Del Mare. IJmuiden local Harry Muter purchased the vessel in 1993 and converted her into a sail training ship. Since 2008 Morgenster has been in use as a clipper brig with the mission to preserve maritime heritage, promote seamanship and support the personal development of those who sail her.

We hope to see you on 24 June!
