    Oceanology International China 2013 opens its doors

    News // October 4, 2012

    The inaugural Oceanology International China is to be held 3-5 September 2013 at INTEX, Shanghai.

    Organised by Reed Exhibitions whose long-running OI Oceanology International – the world’s largest exhibition for marine science and science technology - is held biennially at London’s ExCeL, Oceanology International China 2013 is endorsed by the Chinese Society of Oceanography Ocean Observation Technology Branch (CSO Ocean Observation Technology Branch), and is already attracting major exhibitors including Teledyne Marine, Marine Electronics, Valeport, iXblue and Wildlife Acoustics.

    The new event will be the only forum in Asia where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.

    “We are developing Oceanology International China 2013 with government and industry associations,” explains Exhibition Director, James Coleman of Reed Exhibitions.

    “China’s rapidly growing offshore energy and marine industry are reason enough to hold this new event and companies are already reserving their space in order to capitalise on this growth. Importantly too, the state government is committed to thoroughly exploring the country’s vast marine potential. China’s most recent five-year plan – the 12th Five-Year Plan – was the first ever to include a dedicated chapter on marine development.

    Feedback from exhibitors who have already reserved space is highly encouraging.

    Oceanology International China 2013 will feature a full conference programme developed with industry partners, that will cover the latest technology and service developments and how they cater to the changing requirements of the many industries the event serves.
