The Port of Long Beach will welcome representatives from ports throughout the Western Hemisphere Oct. 1-4 for the American Association of Port Authorities Annual Convention. Leadership from more than 160 port authorities in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America will come together at the Long Beach Convention Center for their largest meeting of the year.
