What is a Patron?

The OCEANS 16 conference and exposition will be held at the Portola Plaza Hotel and the Monterey Marriott, with plenary sessions at the Golden State Theatre. This conference will bring together scientists, engineers, educators, industry leaders and policymakers. They all have one mutual goal, protection and conservation of oceans and species living in them. Six days in September will include technical presentations, tutorials, workshops, networking opportunities and exhibition which features the latest technologies. The exhibition will showcase the equipment related to exploring, monitoring, protecting and wisely using the ocean’s recourses. This year we are expecting more than 2500 attendees, with a comprehensive International presentation.

The OCEANS 16 Monterey will offer new tiered patron packaging. These packages are made to spike your ROI, drive traffic to your boot and establish your brand in a competitive market. We expect more than 130 exhibitors and sponsors to attend the OCEANS 16.  Plenary sessions with leaders from this industry will be held at the historic Golden State Theater. The students will be showcasing their work followed with other student activities.  Participants will be able to choose between three packages: gold, silver, and bronze. Gold package includes 20×20 exhibit space; silver patron package contains 10×20 exhibit space and bronze one offers 10×10 exhibit space. If your organization or company wants to reach ocean science professionals, then our team is looking forward to working with you on participation at OCEANS 16.

Why are we interested in patrons?

OCEANS 16 is a massive conference which promotes conservation and protection of oceans. The two major organizations are sponsoring the event: Oceanic Engineering Society and the Marine Technology Society. For companies and organizations who are willing to support the same goal, we have enabled application forms on our website. You are required to fill in the data, and our representatives will contact you to set up a meeting.

In the last couple of years, we have decided to spread our network and work with many people on this noble cause. In order to accommodate all the attendees, bring the top experts and scientist and organize seminars and tutorials, we need to have financial support. This one of the reason why we opened our doors to all interested sponsors who are willing to participate and cover this event.
