Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI), in partnership with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, the Atlantic Provinces, and partners are recruiting Atlantic Canadian ocean technology companies interested in co-exhibiting within the Canada pavilion at the Oceanology International (Oi) 2022 live event in London, UK, March 15-17, 2022.
Oceanology International brings together 500+ exhibitors and links the three key players in the industry: businesses, academics and government. The event includes innovative live on-water demonstrations and interactive seminars looking to the future of the ocean tech industry. With over 8,000 attendees targeted for 2022, Oceanology International is a key event for those involved in exploring, monitoring, developing or protecting the world’s oceans, from seabed to surface and beyond.
NSBI is the organizer of the Canada pavilion for Oi 2022 which takes place at ExCel London. The Canada pavilion will include 24 exhibitors, with many companies from Atlantic Canada and ocean tech leaders from across the country. There are a limited number of booths available within the Canada pavilion and strong demand is expected. Registrations will be confirmed pending screening by the trade mission organizing committee for eligibility and suitability to participate as payment is received. The final deadline for all registrations is December 3rd, 2021. If your company is not selected to participate in the Canada pavilion, a refund will be issued.
As a co-exhibitor in the Canada pavilion, each company will receive:
- Individual co-exhibitor booth space within the pavilion
- Display counter and locked cabinet
- 2 chairs / stools
Optional booth items (e.g. tv screens/monitors) will be available to rent at additional cost. Each company is responsible for cost of all travel, accommodation, and meals while in market.
Option to attend OI and "walk the floor"
Companies that are interested in participating as part of the Canadian delegation, but do not want to exhibit, may join the delegation as a show walker. This can be a great option for newer or smaller companies. You will receive delegate communications and be invited to participate in any delegation events or info sessions. There is no fee to participate in the Trade Mission as a walker, however companies are responsible for covering the costs of any show admission tickets, costs of all travel, hotels, meals and incidentals. To indicate for interest in this option, please contact Bridget Archibald.
Please note, only those wishing to exhibit as part of the Canada pavilion at Oi 2022 need to register through this page.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in Canada and internationally, the Canadian group participation at Oceanology International 2022 will be subject to any health and travel restrictions that may apply. If it is not possible for the trade mission / Canada pavilion to proceed, companies will receive a full refund of their participation fees.
