Marine Tech Expo will take place on 14 September

It aims to showcase blue technology businesses in Plymouth and the South West of England, and support marine businesses to create a competitive edge and grow further.

This is the first in a series of shows which are designed to showcase the city’s marine credentials to the industry ahead of the international Mayflower 400 celebrations in 2020.

During the event, held between 9:30am and 6pm, there will be a number of keynote speakers who will talk about the forefront of blue technology. As well as a chance to network with company directors, scientists and academics.

There will be guided tours of the Marine Station, live demonstrations and Plymouth will try to state its case as to why it is an ideal test bed for the global blue tech economy with its marine resource and infrastructure.
