We are packing our bags and heading to jolly old England for Oceanology International (Oi 2018) – a premier event for ocean technology and marine science. Oi 2018 provides us with an opportunity to connect with thousands of maritime professionals with diverse backgrounds from many countries. We have found attendees come from a variety of ocean industries including oil and gas, marine renewables, aquaculture, and maritime defence.
The (Oi 2018) conference program is filled with technical tracks and forums bringing together academia, government, international organizations and industry specialists. The show is a hub for sharing knowledge and connecting with the marine technology and ocean science communities to discover technology and solutions to improve strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.
Every year DSA takes the opportunity to attend international conferences and trade missions central to our business. We’d like to share with you our top three reasons for visiting Oi 2018.
This is the main reason many people attend Oi – and it’s our primary reason too. Over 500 exhibitors will be displaying state of the art marine technologies. We take the opportunity to expand our knowledge about the latest developments and trends while showing off our most recent advancements in our ProteusDS software product. DSA will be at booth #6 in the Atlantic Canadian Pavilion; please stop by for a visit.

The Networking Opportunities.
The chance to share knowledge, and connect with top manufacturers and suppliers of ocean technologies and global service providers makes Oi 2018 an excellent event for us. In the end, it is all about the people we meet.
“Attending Oceanology is extremely valuable for us as we work with all ocean sectors: this diverse event allows us to meet a wide array of people and companies in a short time frame,” says Dean Steinke, CEO of DSA.
We’ll be attending many of the networking events, including The Government of Canada reception at the Canada Pavilion(stand E400 &E401) on Wednesday evening.
