Registration opens for Oceanology International 2022

London, UK, 3rd November 2021 – Registration has just opened for Oceanology International 2022 (15 - 17 March 2022), marking the first time since 2018 that the Oi ocean technology community can come together and do business face to face.

Organisers RX predict that Oi 2022 will be a defining event for the industry as the previous 18-month hiatus of B2B comes to an end. Oceanology International is expected to bring over 470 companies to the ExCel Centre in London, exhibiting to more than 8,000 buyers and influencers across 17,000m2 of indoor exhibition space. Visitors can register now for entry via the Oi 2022 website.

Oceanology International has an enviable history and its reputation, influence, importance and portfolio have increased to the point where regional Oi events are now held in San Diego and the Middle East. This means that an Oceanology International now takes place every six months, each providing an unparalleled global marketplace, forum and networking opportunity for academics, government representatives and marine science, technology and industry professionals from over 90 countries.

This international profile is underscored at Oi 2022 with the welcome return of the French and Canadian Pavilions, in addition to strong representation from Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, the UK and – new for 2022 – Rhode Island, all of whom will send group delegations.

An overall expansion of key resources at this year’s event will encompass a greater emphasis on technologies driving Ocean ICT, focusing on the most up-to-date communications, connectivity and data solutions driving across ocean industries. A new highlight for 2022 is the Future Tech hub, bringing together a selection of new-to-market technologists and start-up companies to the exhibition floor, highlighting innovative products and new ways of working.

The exhibition will also witness an upscaling of Oi London’s popular live, on-water product demonstrations in the adjacent Royal Victoria Dock, while an exhaustive range of product launches and refinements – taking in imaging and survey equipment, sensors, AUVs, ROVs, robotics and satcom solutions – will come under the show spotlight.

The broad-based, content-rich nature of Oi 2022’s packed exhibition floor will be reflected by a similarly all-embracing technical conference program, which as ever will provide delegates with new knowledge and insight on important industry trends and forecasts. With balanced sustainability and growth in the Blue Economy as an overall priority, the conference program will also feature the latest technical information related to Uncrewed Vehicles, Survey, Low Carbon Initiatives and Ocean Observation with a focus on cross-sector expertise, future development and innovation.

“The excitement of a physical Oceanology being able to take place is apparent around the team, our loyal exhibitors and visitors, all of whom have all been hugely supportive over the past 18 months. We are looking forward to showcasing the best the industry has to offer, in terms of innovation, collaboration, research, operations, health and safety and environmental sustainability,” said David Ince, Event Director – Oceanology International, RX.

“The goal for Oi 2022 is to have the best the industry has to offer represented on the Exhibition floor, with new features, free interactive seminars and brokered one-to-one meetings via the Enterprise Europe Network and lots more – as well as a conference agenda with professional speakers from all over the world.”
