Oceanology International has announced that its North American event will return for its second edition in 2019 newly branded as Oceanology International Americas to broaden its emphasis and appeal to the rest of the Americas.
OI Americas will return to San Diego Convention Center from February 25 to 27, 2019. Following feedback from participants and industry stakeholders, the three-day conference and exhibition will encompass the Americas and the Caribbean with the aim of welcoming hundreds of additional attendees and enabling more than 200 exhibitors to showcase the latest ocean technologies and industry developments on the trade show floor as well as on the water outside.
Following the successful launch event this year which attracted 1775 unique visitors, the expanded 2019 edition will feature a range of new and enhanced facilities and elements. These include a larger exhibit hall which will allow the assimilation of the main conference track with the show floor through a new integrated theatre, increased program of ‘OceanSocial’ networking events, new tools to help participants interact, a stronger showcase for new technologies, and a richer, more comprehensive, conference program.
To provide a stronger showcase for new blue technologies, a FutureTech hub will be introduced to highlight the latest cutting-edge innovations. The new event will also mirror the OceanICT zone, recently launched at OI London, to feature the latest developments in marine and ocean IT, communications, satellite and data solutions.
