Technology Exhibition


The exhibit portion of the BlueTech Expo event will be close to the the U.S. Capitol in Knight Conference Center at the Newseum.  Thirty vendors of cutting edge ocean technologies will display their products and services.  Convenient to Capitol Hill, House and Senate Office Buildings, and easily accessible from two Metro Stations, the 2019 BlueTech Expo should not be missed!

Key audiences include legislators and staff and decision-makers from Federal and local governments, industry, and academia.  BlueTech Expo is the only annual ocean technology industry event that opens doors to over two dozen government agencies. 

Exhibit spaces are available to IOSTIA members and to non-members ($1,500).  

New in 2019 is the OceanSocial sponsored by Oceanology International.  This special networking event will take place at the exhibition during the afternoon.
