Sea Tech Week® goes virtual

This year the International Marine & Science Technology Week, better known as Sea Tech Week®, is moving online. Its organisers are determined to reproduce the trade fair faithfully in its new virtual format. This year’s theme, ‘Observation: From Seabed to Space’ offers an expansive launchpad for professionals including 30 e-conferences from 12th – 16th October.

Where there’s a will, there’s a wave
Michel Gourtay, President of Technopôle Brest-Iroise, commented: “We are rethinking the
format of Sea Tech Week® while maintaining the value of human interaction central to the process of exchange that lies at the heart of this year’s event. It is more than ever the occasion for professionals to share advances in research and innovation, develop business contacts and enhance international partnerships and collaborations.”

Diving in at the deep end of virtual events
Companies, research labs and students will take part in the event online to discover
opportunities across subjects such as observation technologies and infrastructures, as well as robotics, satellites, renewable marine energy, genomic data and other scientific marine related topics, around the central theme of ‘Observation: From Seabed To Space’.

The flexible format gives attendees the chance to attend multiple events by simply signing up online once. The programme is packed full of events, including:
• The virtual trade show exhibition
• Pre-planned B2B meetings with potential partners & networking opportunities in
marine science
• Conferences including more than 30 parallel sessions with both invited international
speakers and speakers selected through a call for abstracts
• Australia is the event’s guest of honour, and they will be present alongside delegations
from the UK, Canada, and India, amongst others
