Scottish Enterprise has confirmed it will exhibit at MTS/IEEE OCEANS’17 Aberdeen. Their stand will include an “International Showcase” area designed to promote Scottish expertise in the area of oceanic engineering and technology.
Throughout the event, the economic development agency will also run a series of technology sessions in parallel with the main conference to highlight Scottish industrial capability in the international context and show how it can be deployed in the oceanic sector.
International sector head for oil and gas at Scottish Enterprise, David Rennie, said, “The OCEANS’17 conference and exhibition in Aberdeen brings together engineers, technologists, marine scientists with the oceanic business sector. As such, it offers the ideal platform to highlight Scotland’s world-renowned expertise, create new contacts as well as build on existing ones, to maximise future growth opportunities for Scotland.
This event is timely and ties in with our Subsea Engineering Plan published in January.”
Professor John Watson, General Chair of OCEANS’17 Aberdeen and Aberdeen University said, “I am delighted that Scottish Enterprise are able to offer this support to the event and look forward to the Industrial Showcase talks with keen interest. This is an ideal opportunity for industry and academics to engage and promote Scottish engineering and technology to delegates and exhibitors from Canada, Japan, the USA as well as Europe and the UK.
Preparations for the 60th MTS/IEEE OCEANS Conference in Aberdeen, Scotland from 19 – 22 June 2017 are well underway. This will be the second time that the MTS, IEEE/OES’s flagship conference covering all aspects of ocean science, technology and engineering will be hosted in Aberdeen. The fact that OCEANS is returning to Aberdeen highlights the importance and size of the oceanic industry to the region.
The conference is also supported by Subsea UK, the Gold Patrons, who will play a major role in the conference and exhibition. Other patrons include University of Aberdeen; Robert Gordon University; Aberdeen City Council; VisitAberdeenshire; VisitScotland; and Kongsberg Marine.
