About OI China

Oceanology International Opens Its Door to China

Oceanology International China is the only forum in Asia where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world's oceans.

Developed with government and industry associations, Oceanology International China will provide organisations with the opportunity to capitalise on China's rapidly developing offshore energy & marine industries.

Our Identity – Oceanology International

Staged every second year in London, Oceanology International is the largest exhibition for marine science and technology. It offers unparalleled opportunities to make vital trade contacts, seal deals and increase company profits. It is the event to see all the major players in one place, meet current and new suppliers and keep abreast on what's new in the marine science and ocean technology sector.

Oceanology International is a 3-day, free-to-attend event packed with inspiring ideas, business resources and networking opportunities for suppliers, contractors and end-users in the offshore and subsea industries.

Oceanology International 2016 was a great success. The exhibition, conference and multiple other events saw 520+ exhibiting companies network with almost 8000 attendees over three days.

The world-class conferences and 3 new panel discussions were all well attended and have connected delegates with the latest developments and technology transfer opportunities in developing offshore, marine and subsea sectors.

The Royal Victoria Dock has seen a record-breaking amount of vessel movements (148 during the three days) with 1,198 people aboard the 13 visiting vessels.

The Oceanology International will be held on 13-15 March 2018 at ExCeL London.
