The quadrennial PIANC International Congress is attended by a wide spectrum of organisations
engaged in navigation, ports and waterways, from government policy management to technical research
and development. Nearly every country with a significant responsibility for maritime or inland
navigation is represented. Over two-thirds of the delegates occupy senior technical and managerial
positions in their organisations.
