Speakers include keynote Ralph Rayner, non-executive chairman of Sonardyne International; Michael Jones from US marine cluster, The Marine Alliance and Chris Langford of Thales Group.

“Plymouth’s first Marine Tech Expo in 2016 was a huge success and this year will be no different, with the event programme specifically designed to support marine businesses to innovate, create a competitive edge and ultimately grow; creating high value knowledge-based jobs," said programme director, Professor John Chudley.

“It provides a real opportunity to network with other key decision makers and keep up to date with the latest industry innovations.”

Marine autonomy

Exhibitors will showcase the latest in marine autonomy and a ‘Question Time’ event will also take place, looking at autonomous platforms and their impact on workforce and skills, technology and the physical impact on ocean landscape.

Organised by Plymouth City Council in partnership with multiple organisations, the Expo will also provide opportunities for networking and collaboration.

Part of the Mayflower 400 programme, the Expo will take place on June 21 at the Roland Levinsky Building on the University of Plymouth campus.

The following day, Plymouth’s marine community will offer an insight into the leading tech and science being developed in the city including live water demonstrations and a visit to the UK’s first marine enterprise zone, Oceansgate.
