OceansAdvance and its partners are inviting Expressions of Interest from Atlantic Canadian companies interested in Exhibiting at the IEEE MTS OCEANS23 Gulf Coast, Biloxi, Mississippi


Thinking of Exhibiting at OCEANS23?
The main objective for organizing this initiative is to provide Atlantic Canadian companies with a platform to highlight and showcase their array of ocean technology goods and services that will help increase business opportunities in the US and other international markets.

Exhibiting at OCEANS 2023 gives you access and networking opportunities with the industry’s leaders, top scientists, technologists, engineers, and government agencies.

Gulf Coasts is an East Coast “hub” for oceans in the United States, and we anticipate a large crowd will attend this event.

Get your brand and/or product in front of top innovators and decision makers and be a part of one of the most exciting exhibit floors in the marine field!


  • Create new relationships in the entire marine technology supply chain – government, scientific, military, and commercial customers are waiting to be introduced to your company.
  • Expand into new markets – international, government, commercial, and scientific
  • Raise the profile of your company
  • Align your brand with the marine science, technology, and engineering sector
  • Network with fellow industry leaders
  • Attend technical program and learn what is next in marine science, technology, and engineering


In addition, we will support an Atlantic Canada networking opportunity while at the event, right at the Canadian Pavilion exhibit area to maximize the exposure for our Region.

Booth costs will be supported. For information on booth cost please contact cathy.hogan@oceansadvance.net
