The Hydrographic Society UK Announces Hydro 21 Conference and Exhibition

The Hydrographic Society UK (THS UK) will be hosting the Hydro 21 conference from 16 to 18 November 2021 at Cork City Hall, Cork City, Ireland. Hydro 21 is the latest in the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies’ world-renowned series of hydrographic symposia which date back to 1976. 

Hydro 21 will incorporate the THS UK postponed Remote Hydrography conference but will be further expanded in terms of papers, exhibition and aligned events, and will retain the theme of ‘remote hydrography’. The speakers that were originally selected have been invited to refresh or revise their papers, and it is likely that a further call for papers will be issued in May 2021. 

THS UK chief executive David Parker said: “Whilst we were very disappointed to have postponed our Remote Hydrography Conference twice in 2020, we are now looking forward to delivering an even better event in 2021. Hydro 21 will be a fantastic event that provides the hydrographic community with the opportunity for education and networking. To further connect with our Irish Region of THS UK we have also decided to host the event in Cork, Ireland. We would like to thank all of our members, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for their patience and continued support.” 

Seán Cullen, chair and regional director of THS UK commented: “The Hydro 21 Conference and Exhibition will run immediately after the annual INFOMAR Seminar at the same venue – allowing for a greater networking opportunity for hydrographers in Ireland to meet up with the wider industry”.  

Sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities will be released in the coming months. For further information, please contact the organization via conferences@ths.org.uk.
