The World Port Days is an annual festival that takes place along the river Maas in Rotterdam. The organisation has the ambition to locate the festival not only along the river, but also in the inner city.

The Schouwburgplein is one of the first squares that visitors pass on their route from the Central Station to the river and in the design of the square are many references to the Port. This makes it the perfect space in Rotterdam in the inner city to host the World Port Days.

The square becomes an open air exhibition that informs the visitor about the activities that occur in the port on one hand, this through exposing products produced in the port, and about the story behind the design of the square on the other hand, this through highlighting the elements on the square that refer to the port.
