At the Apollo Cargo Alliance, our members always come first. That is why we carefully put together our conference program, which contains an ideal mix of informal social events such as the welcome cocktail and group tours, and network focused activities like the plenary session and one-2-one meetings. Read on to find out more!

At the Apollo Cargo Alliance, we think that our cocktail night on the first night of the Annual Global Conference is the perfect way to ease into the busy conference schedule in a relaxed atmosphere.

With most of our network members united in one place, we always take the opportunity to update everyone on our latest benefits and network news. We also give the opportunity to our trusted partners to present themselves as well as their services.

The best way to discover Antwerp in a short amount of time? A guided city tour, which will takes you past past some of the most important highlights, buildings and areas in town.  A couple of things you can expect to see during this tour:

Say Belgium, and chocolate immediately comes to mind. Belgian chocolate is world famous. The love story between this small country and the sweet delight has been thriving for generations.

In 14 thematic rooms, the Chocolate Nation museum takes you on a 60 to 90 minutes journey and tells you the story of our Belgian chocolate. The tour starts in the cocoa plantations of the equator and follows the cocoa bean to world’s largest cocoa storage port in Antwerp. A gigantic fantasy machine demonstrates how chocolate is made and where the velvety smooth taste originates from.

During your tour through the museum, you will find chocolate traditions, history, brands, products and innovations that have built its worldwide reputation.
