marine tech expo 2020
30 june to 3 July 2020
Plymouth is hosting its third Marine Tech Expo in 2020, designed to demonstrate the South Coast's marine credentials to the world during the Mayflower 400 commemorations. The event will bring together the decision makers, innovators and enterprises involved in the latest advances in marine technology.
Following the success of previous Marine Tech Expo events in 2016 and 2018, this 2020 event will focus its attention on Autonomous Applications and Sustainable Marine technologies, showcasing innovation and research from an inspiring line up of experts and contributors.
The Expo will explore the application of autonomy in marine science and the commercial world through a series of talks on day one. Day two of the conference will be centred on sustainability within the marine world, touching on methods of propulsion, energy sources and our impact on the ocean environment.
In addition to the packed two day conference, delegates will also be able to network directly with commercial businesses and partner organisations at the exhibition which will allow you to see first-hand the latest technology and systems supporting the marine world.
Utilising Plymouth’s unique ‘Smart Sound’ proving range as a stage, the Marine Business Technology Centre, working closely with the Future Autonomous at Sea Technology cluster, will be carefully curating a series of in sea demonstrations of autonomous platforms and environment monitoring systems.
Businesses and innovators across the globe will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their technology in real world conditions live to actual delegates. Businesses will also be given the opportunity to view the command and control centre for the Smart Sound, based at Thales’ Autonomous Operations Centre.
