If you are planing to attend the third annual Smart Ocean workshop this year, July 2 – 3, 2012, at the Marine Institute of Oranmore, Ireland (MII)then you might want to book your hotel today. There will be an exceptional demand on hotel and other accomodations in early July because this year’s event coincides with the grand finale of the Volvo Ocean Race.

So consider this your advance notice. This year’s theme “Getting more from our marine resources” is a timely one for this industry-orientated event. Its goal is to highlight new commercial and innovation opportunities emerging from Ireland’s SmartOcean Cluster, delivering Hi-Tech products and services to the global marine sector.

Keynote speakers will provide insight on emerging markets, policy and innovation opportunities in the global marine sector.
