Optimism at Ocean Business 2019 - 10/04/2019


There is an optimistic buzz at Ocean Business, the world largest hydrographic trade-show at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton, learned Durk Haarsma of Geomares, publisher of Hydro International. He and his colleagues are visiting the show to discover the latest developments in the hydrographic branch.

More visitors

“With oil and gas picking up again and offshore renewables growing fast, the show expects an increasing number of visitors of 5 percent”, says Durk. “Optimism sounded also through in a very lively wine-trail on the first day of the show.”

Fully Booked Demos

“All the demos are fully booked and the ever growing conference alongside the exhibition is another sign of renewed growth of the sector”, reports Durk after his first day at Ocean Business.
