B2B Matchmaking Event at Ocean Business 2019

Waterfront Campus European Way Southampton UK SO14 3ZH

Enterprise Europe Network is organising the International B2B matchmaking event on Wednesday 10 April 2019, during the Ocean Business 2019.

The FREE matchmaking event will give you the opportunity to meet potential business partners during pre-arranged 20 minute meetings and create real business development opportunities with exhibitors but also visitors, active in the maritime sector. Your agenda will be sent to you one week before the event with the exact time and location of your meetings.

The Ocean Business 2019 b2match event is an important international maritime and marine technologies event held in Southampton every two years, and has a particular focus on companies working in the following sectors:

  • Oceanography
  • Ports and Waterways/Coastal and Harbour Authorities
  • Defence and maritime security
  • Environmental monitoring and pollution control
  • Coastal and offshore survey
  • Oil and gas exploration and production
  • Marine engineering
  • Search and survey
  • Government related organisations

The event is held at the National Oceanography Centre, who approached EEN to host the successful brokerage in 2017. (As a result of this event, we were additionally asked to host a b2match alongside Oceanology, which is held in alternate years to Ocean Business and has a different marine focus).

This year there are 340 international exhibitors and a range of workshops and displays.

The first event was held to support the Maritime and Dual Use initiative and had the support and participation of the Maritime Sector Group and the Aeronautics, Space and Dual Use Technologies Sector Group. We expect this to happen again in 2019.
