Spotlighting the best, brightest & bravest of the next generation

The AntwerpXL 40 Under 40 campaign showcases the rising stars of the breakbulk and heavy lift industry.
Professionals under the age of 40 can self-nominate or be nominated for inclusion in the prestigious list.

Our 40 Under 40 recognises both those with the greatest potential to become industry leaders in the future and those who have achieved greatness already.

Our chosen 40 successful applicants have now been chosen. You can find their profiles on our dedicated 40 under 40 gallery, & will be celebrated at AntwerpXL itself, with a special drinks reception held in their honour. The selected 40 will be awarded special VIP passes for AntwerpXL. These will give them access to the event’s conference programme and other exclusive zones including the VIP lounge. They will also be invited, as guests of honour, to a special Next Gen debate taking place during the show.
