Blue Economy Seminar to Develop a ‘Forward Strategy’ at Ocean Business 2015

The Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) are hosting a vital seminar for the Blue Economy at this year’s Ocean Business event on 14 April from 9.30 - 5.00pm at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, UK.

At a time when the industry is facing financial, geopolitical and technical challenges, the Blue Economy seminar aims to provide an opportunity for innovation, collaboration and enterprise. From the seminar, FIG and IHO intend to develop a summary position document to further advance the concept of developing and growing a Blue Economy.

There will be five different sessions running at the seminar, with numerous presentations and a final discussion session to understand outcomes. Delegates to the Blue Economy seminar will enjoy free entrance to the Ocean Business exhibition, which provides a high calibre mix of technology and business for visitors with over 300 companies exhibiting. As in previous years, the show will include a full three-day program of hands-on training and demonstration workshops, enabling buyers to actually test drive equipment before purchasing. Also running alongside Ocean Business will be the Offshore Survey conference to address the technical and business issues facing the global field of offshore surveying. As always, the combined events bring a lively social program, culminating in a gala dinner, held at Southampton’s Guildhall on 15 April.
