Ocean Business is a three-day international exhibition of ocean technologies and services that takes place at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton (UK) every odd-numbered year.  In April 2017, we had 7 companies that exhibited in the U.S BlueTech Pavilion.

Participating U.S. Companies included:



"It was both a privilege and an opportunity to participate in the USMTEI mission to the 2017 Ocean Business show in Southampton. Many exciting doors were opened and it is now our task to follow through."

- Robert Pinkel, Co-Principal, Del Mar Oceanographic

"TMA and ITA exceeded my expectations with the USMTEI. We had a packed schedule before, at, and after Ocean Business meeting with companies and organizations in our industry. You would be hard pressed to find another way to open as many doors in such a short amount of time."

- Mark Gundersen, President & CEO, Marine Advanced Research

"As a young small business, the programs offered by USMTEI, TMA, and ITA provided us with an invaluable opportunity to reach new customers and companies. We hope to participate again and would highly recommend the program."

- Rusty Jehangir, Founder, Blue Robotics

"The team worked seamlessly as one entity focused on helping business get results."

- Durval Tavares, President, Aquabotix
