Why Exhibit?

Exhibiting at OCEANS 2022 Hampton Roads provides access to the marine industry’s influencers and decision-makers, including leading scientists, technologists, engineers, and government representatives. Additionally, the OCEANS 2022 Conference boasts a rich mix of key academic leaders and sought after industry speakers and presenters along with significant government agency representation from organizations like the United States Navy (USN), The Office of Naval Research (ONR), and The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to name a few.
