With sixteen major Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) events tabled for 2014 encompassing highly topical conferences, courses and special events, a stimulating year, and fruitful networking, lies ahead for a wide range of interests within the world of marine engineering, science and technology.
“We have an excellent programme in place for next year, ” explains IMarEST’s Chief Executive, David Loosley. “Being held in six cities and towns around the globe and covering topical issues such as Arctic shipping, ballast water, LNG ship fuel, avoiding the cost of marine failures, innovative solutions to global trends in a naval engineering context, and the exciting human powered submarine races, our programme of events encompasses the interests of our wide membership. We encourage members, and non-members alike, to ensure all relevant dates are firmly in their diaries.”

About the IMarEST
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) is the leading international membership body and learned society for all marine professionals. The IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body. It is the largest marine organisation of its kind with a worldwide membership of 15, 000 based in over 100 countries.
Working with the global marine community, the IMarEST promotes the scientific development of marine engineering, science and technology, providing opportunities for the exchange of ideas and practices and upholding the status, standards and expertise of marine professionals worldwide.
The IMarEST is a respected authority in every maritime country. It is a Non-Governmental Organisation with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), observer status at the International Oceanographic Commission, and it has special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC), which facilitates its access to other international intergovernmental meetings where its specialized marine expertise is of particular use, e.g., the United Nations meetings on Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) and the work of the International Seabed Authority on marine mining. It is a nominated and licensed body of the Engineering Council (UK), a member of the Science Council and has significant links with many other maritime organisations worldwide.
IMarEST also runs a series of industry leading events and conferences as well as publishing internationally recognised titles: Marine Engineers Review (MER); Shipping World and Shipbuilder; Maritime IT and Electronics; Marine Scientist; and Offshore Technology
