NW Marine Technology Summit

MTS Oregon would like to invite you to Newport, OR for the second bi-annual NW Marine Technology Summit. The 2016 Summit will convene at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn October 10th-11th in Newport, Oregon and feature a variety of session topics, private receptions at the Oregon Coast Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center, keynote speakers, and more. Funds raised from the conference will go toward MTS Oregon’s outreach programs, including our college scholarship program.

Early Registration for attendees, vendors, and sponsors is now open.  Call for abstracts is coming soon. Session topics are welcomed.

The 2014 event was organized by volunteer marine technology professionals and students from the Oregon Section of the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and through generous support from our sponsors. We are looking for individuals and companies willing to help make the 2016 Summit happen. We need people to volunteer with the following:

    Program Development
    Marketing and Advertising
    Event Moderation
    Setup and On-site Staffing

For questions about volunteering, exhibiting, or sponsoring this event contact: Andrew T. Ziegwied, NW Marine Technology Summit Coordinator
