Mari-Tech 2013: Kudos to the Atlantic Branch
The annual technical conference and exhibition was a huge success, attracting some 300 delegates, over 40 exhibitors and a “who’s who” of speakers from the international marine technology industry.
If we needed proof that Mari-Tech is an important event for the marine industry in Canada, that came when the Honourable Peter Mackay, Minister of National Defence, decided to use our platform to announce the purchase of 18 to 21 new vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard fleet. Mr. Mackay spoke during the Procurement Outlook presentation by Public Works and Government Services Canada, which was attended by an additional 60 guests.
This was just one of many highlights. It was a great event. Thanks go to our sponsors, speakers and exhibitors. But especially, everyone’s thanks and appreciation go to the Atlantic Branch for their hard work in staging this event.
