Connecting the Ocean Technology Community across the Middle East, India and East Africa

Oceanology International Middle East 2021 connects regional stakeholders with international solution providers to secure a sustainable use of the Indian Ocean and to ensure safe living conditions in its rim countries by tackling climate and seismological challenges.  The three-day exhibition and conference provides a high-impact platform for government decision-makers, industry leaders and academia to share their knowledge, establish business relationships and discuss how to improve and advance strategies for measuring, exploiting, and protecting our ocean.

The launch of Oceanology International Middle East Hybrid+ in 2021 will introduce a new digital element to the live, face-to-face event that will give a wider international audience the opportunity to remotely participate, learn and engage with the ocean tech and marine science community in the region.
