Join us in beautiful Florø on the West Coast of Norway for the latest updates on technology, policies, projects and business cases within the marine renewable energy and maritime hydrogen industries.

Participants will have plenty of opportunity to meet with potential business and project partners, and to engage in discussions with scientists, business developers, technology suppliers and project managers. Crossover from the subsea industry is vital to develop the upcoming ocean industries. Last year we had the pleasure of hosting 170 people from 15 countries. Register for the conference to expand your network and before 1 June for early-bird discount.

Included in the programme is also a sightseeing boat trip accompanied by dinner at the seafront in one of the best seafood restaurants on the West Coast of Norway, Knutholmen.
