Oceanology International at the Doorstep - 07/03/2012
A successful Oceanology International 2012 with over 525 exhibitors from 33 countries in the major exhibition is about to launch. From 13 to 15 March 2012 in the ExCeL Centre situated in the London Docklands, seven separate one-day conferences are scheduled, focusing on ocean observation & forecasting; hydrography & geophysics; navigation & positioning; oil & gas; marine renewables; maritime security; and unmanned underwater vehicles.
Vessels will be moored alongside, and accessible from, the exhibition hall; there are dockside product demonstrations and a careers day is aimed at attracting new blood to the sectors it serves; there also is a full programme of associated events.
Event manager James Coleman of Reed Exhibitions is expecting in excess of 8,000 delegates from over 70 countries to join us over the three packed days. This year’s event is larger both in terms of exhibitors and the space they have taken (525 and 7,700m2 compared to 2010’s 515 and 7,070m2). All of the exhibition space has now been reserved or sold.
The Interspill London 2012 exhibition, which features a highly compelling and topical paid-for conference, is being held alongside Oceanology International with free access back and forth between the two exhibitions. There are over a hundred exhibitors in the Interspill exhibition which showcase the very latest products and services from the oil spill prevention and response, pollution control, specialised vessels and equipment, waste disposal and land remediation, serving offshore, coastal, onshore and the growing land based spill industry. It builds on the success of the previous conference and exhibition held in 2009. The multifaceted event will bring together experts and leaders of the spill industry to share ideas and debate issues of the moment.
