TOC Story

Did you know how it all started?

Well, let’s start saying change starts with a conversation.

TOC started as the Terminal Operations Conference over 40 years ago in Europe offering
a gathering point for the container supply chain and port professionals.

And since then, we’ve been embarked on a long journey to become the place where the industry meets
to learn, meet friends, trade, network, grow and become the best at what they do…

Moving things around the world,
no matter where they are.

From big cities to small islands, the maritime logistics industry has played and still does a big role in the way we live,
work and consume every day.

As you know the maritime shipping is responsible for transporting 90% of the world's trade.

But we can’t overlook its environmental costs, trade wars and the human safety factor.

It's for this that at TOC we believe we can have a positive impact in everyone’s life, so…

Our vision is to make the maritime logistics better and more sustainable
by shaping the future of the industry into a smarter, safer, greener and more efficient one.

Since the early days, TOC has always placed the port at the heart of the container supply chain to improve its operations.

And with time, the Terminal Operations Conference evolved into the TOC we know today,

A TOC that constantly adapts to the new times while keeping the same principles to offer more…

A complete container supply chain event that comes in different shapes and forms.

So, as we understand the industry is always looking for new ways to make things faster, more efficient and more sustainable…

Our mission is to be the industry platform where change happens,
by bringing…

Content in different formats, 
not just in-person but also digital and hybrid, where people can learn the latest trends in maritime and logistics

Global exhibitions,
where manufacturers and suppliers can showcase and trade their innovative solutions
to 1000’s of buyers, both online and offline

Networking and fiestas,
where people can meet, relax and exchange ideas with others over a drink, a golf game or a port tour in one of the top maritime hubs


After many successful events and increased demand TOC became ‘TOC Events’ while spreading to other parts of the world
like the Americas, Asia and Africa, making the brand a truly global platform to connect and drive change...

Today, we are much more than events. We are TOC Worldwide.

Serving the industry across the world in different regions.

We facilitate conversation between the global port and container supply chain communities

We’ve embraced new ways of bringing digital and commercial opportunities to the next level.

But the journey doesn’t end here…

We’ll continue working hard at being the platform where change happens,

Always keeping it FUN in true TOC-style

So that's the story of TOC, the brand that helps move things around the world better.


Our Values

Be Respectful

We do not tolerate any behaviour that makes anyone feel unsafe or unwelcome, including discrimination, bullying, and harassment.

Build Trust

We don’t just say we’re specialists, we live and breathe the industry we work in and the communities we work with. 

Be Inclusive

Each of us is responsible for developing and maintaining a culture of equality, dignity, inclusion and respect throughout our events.

Think Big

We love ambitious thinking and taking bold options. At the same time, we recognise that success also comes from rolling up our sleeves, sweating the detail and taking personal ownership of the things that matter.


Stay Together

We believe through collaboration, openness, and empathy we can all grow together as an industry. Hence, at our events we bring a platform for the industry to come together to learn, trade and grow.

Go Green

We are committed to provide the industry with a global platform to share sustainability and safety best practices. It’s, therefore, our duty to provide the industry with sustainable and safe events.
