Now in its 20th year and following a well-received 2015 event in Amsterdam, this year’s industry-leading Interspill oil spill conference and exhibition will be held at the ExCeL in London, UK.

The event, co-located with the Oceanology International 2018 ocean technology and marine science exhibition, will run between 13 and 15 March.

“The Interspill 2018 conference and exhibition allows us to publicise, promote and clarify the nature of our industry, in an era when major oil spills at sea have been largely been brought under control,” said Roger Mabbott, executive director, UK Spill Association and the conference host.

Valuable forum

Interspill 2018 wants to provide a valuable forum, business and networking opportunity for oil spill industry professionals to discuss potential issues surrounding future oil spills, including spill prevention, preparedness, response and restoration.

This year, Interspill will be augmented by Interspill Plus – a special space organised by the UK Spill Association, focusing upon On Land Spills, with seminars, demonstrations and presentations.

Meanwhile, two short courses, Oil Spill Fundamentals and Claims & Compensation, will be held on Monday 12 March, with the aim of introducing delegates to the first principles of oil spill response.

Those who are planning to attend are strongly advised to register now to benefit from additional additional free entry for the Oceanology International conference and exhibition, running concurrently in the ExCeL, London.
