Plymouth Marine Tech Expo 2020: Call for Abstracts

30 July 2019

Plymouth's Marine Tech Expo will return to the city from 30th June to 3rd July 2020, as part of the Mayflower 400 programme of events.

This four day Expo offers a platform to showcase, network and collaborate with the world-class marine technology sector that exists in the South West.

The event will also offer the opportunity for attendees to view in- and on-water live demonstrations, both at the Expo and out in Plymouth Sound, coordinated by the Future Autonomous at Sea Technologies (FAST) Cluster.

Designed to bring together industry leaders involved in the latest marine innovations in blue technology under one roof, the first Marine Tech Expo was held in 2016 and was a sell-out success, with another well-attended event held at the University of Plymouth in 2018.

Councillor Tudor Evans, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: "We're working to put Plymouth on the map as the UK's centre for marine businesses, with a wealth of ongoing developments including Oceansgate, the Marine Business Technology Centre, Smart Sound Plymouth and plans for the country's first National Marine Park.

"The third Marine Tech Expo will build on this, bringing together the key decision makers and innovators within the industry for a unique networking and knowledge sharing opportunity."

Conference paper abstract submissions on the latest in cutting-edge research and technology on the topics of Autonomous Applications and Sustainable Marine are now invited for the 2020 Expo.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Marine Tech Expo organising committee, comprising industry experts and knowledge partners. Successful applicants will be notified by December 2019 with a request for a full conference paper submission by February 2020.

All submitted papers will be entered into the award for Most Innovative Conference Paper at the Marine Tech Awards gala dinner which will be held as part of the Expo on Thursday 2 July.


Co-located and running in parallel with the Marine Tech Expo will be the 64th Marine Measurement Forum on 30th June. This, and an Expo ice-breaker reception later that evening, will both be organised and hosted by The Hydrographic Society UK.


If you're interested in presenting at Plymouth Marine Tech Expo 2020, please submit your conference paper abstract or expression of interest to marinetechexpo@plymouth.gov.uk by 6 September 2019.
