ONR/MTS Buoy Workshop

Exhibitor Information [ Workshop Registration | Exhibit Registration | List of Exhibitors]

NOTE Concerning Customs:  Materials coming to Canada from the United States or abroad will, of necessity, have to clear Canadian Customs.  The use of a recognized Custom Broker is STRONGLY recommended.

We again invite manufacturers and distributors of components and instrumentation for oceanographic buoy systems to exhibit at the workshop and display and discuss their products. Interaction between the workshop attendees and these organizations proved to be beneficial to both. We welcome the exhibitors again this year; their areas will be available for visits and exchange during breaks.

The Exhibitor fee for display tables is $300.  Exhibitors must register for the workshop before registering for a table and must attend the presentations.
