Connecting the ocean exploration community

Oceanology International Americas is for all those involved in exploring, protecting and sustainably operating in the world’s oceans and waterways. This key event delivers access to comprehensive, innovative solutions, content and expertise, all unified by the use of ocean technology. OiA is the communities meeting place, a place to reaffirm connections and form new relationships. We want this to be a catalyst for innovation so bring your ideas and set the stage for progress in 2023.

We connect manufacturers and users of ocean technology with a complete spectrum of scientific, government and industrial stakeholders, technologists and engineers all in the one location. These connections can unlock the innovations necessary to meet the needs of climate change, energy transition and developments in The Blue Economy, enabling collaboration, problem-solving, and long-term holistic strategies for exploring, harvesting and protecting the oceans.

We need technologies to discover resources and create jobs and energy while continuing to regulate climate and support biodiversity. Litter and pollution, over-fishing and loss of habitats are problems we are currently facing in the industry, and here at Oi Americas we want to find new ways to tackle these threats moving forward. 

A catalyst for innovation

Oi Americas attracts visitors from a variety of industries including offshore oil and gas, ports and harbours, marine renewables, maritime security and marine science, providing the opportunity for buyers and suppliers to do business in one location. For 2023, we expect engagement of 15+ national and international marine research institutes, academic institutions and POGO members.

The three-day conference and exhibition will be returning in 2023, as we look to welcome over 2,500 attendees and enable more than 200 exhibitors to showcase the latest ocean technologies and developments on the exhibition floor, as well as on water demos and vessels.
