Space for Country Pavilions and outside exhibits are also available – please contact David Moyle for further information.

Why attend?

Brexit and the Industrial Strategy are opportunities for the regions outside of the South-East and support them to drive economic growth – here and abroad.  Wave and tidal energy industries are part of this.

In Glasgow, hear from MPs and regional political leaders as they set out their vision for marine energy driving local economic growth. We will also welcome delegates from our industries’ global markets as they set out upcoming opportunities and debate how we can drive global exports. And it will be a chance for us to debate together how we can overcome the common challenges that lie before us.

As the first marine conference after the publication of the Government’s Industrial Strategy, join us to discuss what it means for our industries.
