  It has been the busiest trade show we have ever attended, not just Ocean Business but any trade show in the industry.

Terry Sloane, Managing Director, Planet Ocean, UK

 It has been excellent. Out of the two UK oceanographic shows at which we exhibit, this one is the best for us – no question!

Pam Mayerfeld, Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Turner Designs, USA

 Out of the two main shows that we exhibit at – this one is significantly better.

Colin Cameron, Business Development Manager, DOF Subsea, UK

 In terms of exhibitions – the return on investment at Ocean Business is by far the best. This has been the best Ocean Business yet.

Kevin Edwards, Sales & Marketing Manager, Valeport, UK

 One of the best shows ever – the location is great and having the test tank is such a benefit to the show!

Charlie Foll, Managing Director, Atlantas Marine, UK

 The best show. I get more leads at this show than I do at the other major show that I exhibit at in the UK.

Laurie Smith, Managing Director, Del Norte, UK

 This show has been phenomenal – it wasn’t just the quantity – it was also the quality!

Debbie Durgin, Supervisor, Marketing & Sales, Klein Marine Systems, USA

 Ocean Business is the best attended and most friendly event in our calendar. High level industry contacts from all over the world. Not to be missed!

Mike Hole, Director, Keller, UK

 Ocean Business is one of the significant dates in the marine trades calendar and should not be missed by marine industry professionals.

David Aitken, Director, Maricuda, UK

 This is one of the most important shows in our calendar.

Sarah Dyer, Marketing Manager, ASV Global, UK

 The show remains Chelsea’s number one oceanography event! An endless stream of very constructive business meetings and product technical demonstrations over a busy three days and nights – another very successful Ocean Business event.

Richard Burt, Sales & Marketing Director, Chelsea Technologies Group, UK

 Once again a great show. Top quality leads and sales made on the stand.

Jon Sharland, Sales, Tritex NDT, UK

 It was a great show, excellent for catching up with contacts, meeting new people and getting an insight into what will be happening next in the industry.

Tom Hiller, Director, THURN Group, UK

  A very good industry event where you can meet all the important players in the world of ocean and underwater exploration.

Vlad Lazar, Survey Engineer, Marine Research SRL, Romania

  An excellent exhibition. Feel like it is a big family reunion even with the competitors.

Lourdes Evans, Sales Manager, HYPACK, USA

  The most consistently well organised event on the marine, underwater and blue economy show calendar and the one we always enjoy and we have been here from the start.

Brian Abel, CEO, All Oceans Engineering, UK

  Ocean Business: a place to discover new technologies, meet old and new friends and to design the future at sea.

Jose Braga, Engineer, OceanScan-MST, Portugal

  The intimate atmosphere of the show was a definite plus point, and the opportunities to meet suppliers and discuss new advances face to face on neutral ground is always better than formal visits to offices or endless phone calls. Would recommend to prospective future attendees.

Steve Davie, Director, Charthouse Marine, UK

  I really enjoyed attending Ocean Business 2017. The scale of the exhibition and range of activities on offer was incredible, and the sessions I attended were of excellent quality.

Hannah Brittain, Project Officer, Bath and North East Somerset Council, UK

  Really positive atmosphere and very knowledgeable exhibitors from a vast selection of the marine industries best and brightest, well worth it!

Jonathan Teague, PhD Student, University of Bristol, UK

  This is a cracking marine oriented conference and exhibition, held in the most relaxing location, consequently all the right people attend.

Andy Thomson, Development Director, Maritime Propulsion Technologies, UK

  An excellent networking exhibition. Far busier than many that I have attended recently with a good quality of exhibitors and delegates.

Brian Dempster, Marketing Manager, Habia Cable, UK

  Another exceptional Ocean Business Show, the perfect showcase for STS Subsea’s new product launches and to increase awareness of our capabilities.

Graeme McGhee, Business Manager, STS Subsea, UK

  Ocean Business is the premier event for those interested in subsea, a mecca for those wanting to meet leading individuals and companies in the sector.

Philip Rood, Associate, TurnerTrippick PR, UK

  Ocean Business allowed me to have a quick view of the whole oceanic industry in 2 days. We could meet interesting companies and have an idea of the main trends in the industry for the following years.

Hector Martin, CEO, Smalle Technnologies, Spain

  No other show that brings more specialists in marine research technologies together with scientists.

Dr Regine Labrenz, Technology Transfer Officer, Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research, Germany

  An exhibition with a good vibe that provides a great opportunity for networking and technology watching.

Ann Edwards, Engineer, QinetiQ, UK

  Great show with quality visitors and great footfall. This is the second time we’ve exhibited and will definitely be back.
