Connecting The Ocean Technology & Science Community Across The Americas

At Oi we celebrate the diversity of the worlds waterways and oceans, the aquatic life that exists in these spaces and the opportunity that the worlds water offers us. In the same way we embrace a multitudinous  community who are passionate and curious about exploring, protecting and sustainably operating in the world’s oceans and waterways. The ocean technology and science community; those that exhibit, attend, partner and deliver the shows, are as varied as the worlds waters we work in. Everyone is welcome to dive in and make the experience of the event richer, and wholly inclusive.

The event benefits hugely from its location as it enables exhibitors to demonstrate their USVs and ROV’s on their natural habitat.. The water. Add to the fact the weather will be great and it offers everyone a fantastic opportunity to scrutinise the vehicles at length safe in the knowledge the weather wont get in the way.
