Secure your place at ShipZERO 26.5: “We’ve Got the Power!”

May 12, 2022

We are delighted to announce registration is now open for ShipZERO 26.5: “We’ve Got the power!” in Amsterdam on the 20th of June 2022. 

This in-person event marks the next step on our voyage to True Zero and will focus on true innovators in the zero-emissions shipping space.

Following the overwhelming success of ShipZERO 26 in Glasgow at COP26, we expect places to sell out quickly and suggest you secure your place at the earliest opportunity.

Note: discounted early-bird registration is available using the link below.


A world-class venue:

We are thrilled to be hosting ShipZERO 26.5 in-person at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam, one of the city’s leading venues just minutes from the Central Station – and overlooking the Port of Amsterdam.

This state-of-the-art events space is a natural fit for ZESTAs – an Association made up of change-makers and innovators.

Indeed, one of the reasons for hosting ShipZERO 26.5 at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ is the building’s superb track record on sustainability.
Not only was sustainability front and centre throughout the design and construction phases of this exceptional space, but innovative and intelligent use of tech means energy efficiency is maximised on a daily basis. The shared values and parallels with ZESTAs and our membership is evident.

In fact, having been awarded a “very good” BREEAM certificate, the building itself has been officially certified as one of the most sustainable cultural institutions in Amsterdam.
