With an expanded program and schedule of events, the 2015 World Maritime Technology Conference, held in conjunction with the SNAME Maritime Convention, drew nearly 1,200 people from 32 countries.
The conferences took place from Nov. 3-7 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.
"As the president of SNAME and the host of the 2015 World Maritime Conference, I am pleased to report that all attendees experienced a program focused on sharing knowledge and developing relationships,” SNAME president Joe Comer said in a statement.
There were 170 sessions “presented by maritime professionals from around the world on a variety of topics,” Comer said. “Attendees were able to visit an international expo of over 100 exhibitors with many hands-on demonstrations, along with many fun events, culminating with SNAME's annual regatta racing J-22s out of the Newport Sailing Center on Narragansett Bay.���
