OI Connect 2021

Visitor Registration Now Open


Oi Connect is back from May 11–14, 2021, to help the ocean science and technology communities continue to meet, learn and do business.  We know your work has not stopped, so neither has your need to learn from ocean tech leaders from across the globe, boost your technical knowledge and connect with your industry colleagues.

Oi Connect draws together the ocean tech and science community on a digital platform that brings the three key players in the industry together: businesses, academics and government.

For five decades, Oceanology International has been the event to view products, gain knowledge and exchange ideas in the ocean science and tech sector. Now, Oi Connect will do the same online as we welcome attendees and exhibitors to connect with each other using the AI-driven meetings platform over the four-day event.

Our online event is built on four pillars that will enable visitors and exhibitors to be successful

  • Networking
    Network with peers and colleagues, catch up on the latest news and information.
  • Sourcing
    Source the latest products and services from leading ocean tech suppliers.
  • Meeting
    Connect with exhibitors through powerful meetings and Ai driven recommendations.
  • Learning
    Learn from thought leaders and industry academics and researchers.

No other digital platform provides such a unique opportunity to display your solutions to 15+ vertical industries in one place; including offshore oil & gas, ports & harbours, marine renewables, maritime security and marine science.

In 2020, we hosted the world's top manufacturers and suppliers of ocean technologies & components, as well as global service providers and contractors such as iXblue, Teledyne Marine, Fugro, Seadrone, Saab Seaeye and Armstrong Marine.

The 2020 event played host to over 2500 attendees, from a global audience of 117 countries who took part in over 1150 meetings and watched 7669 conference sessions.

Ralph Rayner, President of the Society for Underwater Technology stated:

“I was delighted with how Oi Connect managed to bring so many of the community together. The Oi Connect platform saw many hundreds of meetings and conference hours delivered. Good business has been conducted and new relationships formed… Oi Connect really delivered for the ocean science and technology community.”

Don’t miss your chance to discover an ocean of opportunity and join us at Oi Connect from 11 to 14 May, 2021.
