The Trade Commission of the French Embassy in London will showcase the best of French ocean technology at Ocean Business 2011. Ocean Business, which is held every two years at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton (England), will take place from 5 to 7 April 2011.

 

Ocean Business 2011 is expected to attract 280 exhibitors from 19 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Ireland, The Netherlands, New Zealand, and Norway, as well as 4,000 visitors. Ocean Business is a hands-on exhibition incorporating presentations and on-water demonstrations and training sessions, with a wide range of networking opportunities for visitors and exhibitors.

 

A total of eight sea-technology companies from France will be exhibiting at the Ocean Business trade show as part of the French Pavilion (Stand H8), which is being organised with the backing of the French Trade Commission in the UK and UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency. Cadden and CLS will not be on Stand H8, but on Stands V22 and V23 respectively.

 

The French companies, from across the sector, will present their innovative products and advanced technological solutions in sea technology in order to reinforce their professional contacts with British partners and to provide new business opportunities for trade between France and the UK.
