IOSTIA (IO-sha), the International Ocean Science and Technology Industry Association, a new 501(c)(6) industry association representing businesses that provide technology and services for sectors that sustainably and commercially utilize the oceans, has partnered with the publisher of Ocean News & Technology (ON&T) and Environment, Coastal and Offshore (ECO) magazines.

This partnership provides IOSTIA members with the opportunity to take advantage of unique content offerings and advertising in both ON&T and ECO magazines.

”There has been substantial interest in having IOSTIA offer an accessible program that creates opportunities for smaller and emerging companies to establish their brand in the market place and sells products and services. This is goal of our SBA program and having an agreement with ON&T and ECO adds substantially to our suite of industry-leading services,” remarked Rich Lawson, CEO of IOSTIA.

IOSTIA’s mission is to provide programs and services that create new opportunities and encourage a favorable business environment for science and technology companies that serve blue tech industry sectors that lie largely outside of the oil and gas industry.

“The emerging technologies and companies are crucial to the future of the ocean technology industry and we are delighted that IOSTIA is providing services that give these companies a leg up,” continued Lawson.
