THS UK Announces Postponement of the Remote Hydrography Conference

Following the UK Government announcement that conferences will not be given the go-ahead to resume until 1st October, with great regret THS UK have been forced to delay the Remote Hydrography conference once again.

However, we can announce that on 23rd September we will be hosting an online webcast prelude event – a selection of short presentations by selected speakers from our programme to give the audience a quick update on a range of Remote Hydrography subjects.  Details of how to register for this event will be released nearer the time, keep an eye on our website and social media channels for further updates.

At this moment in time we cannot confirm the new dates of the main conference as we are working with the venue and establishing the dates of other events to try to minimise any conflict with other industry events.

All aspects of the conference remain as previously advertised:
  • Keynote address by Rear Admiral Peter Sparkes Royal Navy, Acting Chief Executive of The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO)and National Hydrographer,
  • A full two-day programme of expert speakers and panel discussions,
  • Opportunities to network with leading industry experts,
  • Exhibitors from across the industry in the accompanying trade exhibition.

THS UK would like to thank our sponsors, exhibitors, partners, suppliers, and delegates for their continued support during this challenging time.
