With a dozen conferences programmed, 2013 promises to be a busy year for the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST).

Embracing civil and defence topics, marine engineering, marine science, offshore oil and gas and LNG, environmental issues, and the Arctic, the 2013 conferences are designed to reflect current maritime concerns and will present the latest innovations in marine engineering, science or technology.

“We have a really stimulating programme to share with members and the global marine community alike, ” says IMarEST Chief Executive, David Loosley. “Some are editions of successful established events that are traditionally held every year, or biennially; a further six are brand new events being held in Houston, Texas; Singapore; Cyprus; Amsterdam and  London– we are eager to ensure that IMarEST events reach as wide an audience as possible, for our 15, 000 members are based in over a hundred countries around the world.”
