The innovative, immersive and inspiring Blue Economy Hall is firmly focused on enabling a more sustainable tomorrow, today.
A treasure trove of breakthrough solutions, technologies and partnerships, this one-of-a-kind space aims to help unlock commercial success through the responsible use of the ocean’s resources.
Because this a challenge that demands new ways of thinking, working and collaborating, we’ve invited ambitious participants from multiple industries to demonstrate their bold approaches. As such, the hall hosts players from the energy, finance, communications, tech, logistics, security, science, regulatory – and many more – segments all gathering to share knowledge and help accelerate change.
Every stand promises discovery, every conversation offers inspiration. This is your place to experience, and enable, the future.
Knowledge sharing, discussion and networking is also key to progress. That’s why the hall provides a platform for the Blue Talks, hour long discussions on the industry’s hottest topics, delivering valuable takeaways and unique insights.
Expert insights will be shared on matters ranging from cash to collaboration, future fuels, infrastructure development, autonomy, regulatory insight, offshore wind, and how to drive and influence positive change, amongst other topics.
