Sustainability in the Marine Industry – Charting a Course

This is your special invitation to attend the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering, Vancouver Island Branch’s eighth annual conference on June 14 – 15, 2007 at the beautiful Laurel Point Inn bordering Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

Why is it important that you act now? Because of the delegates who attended our Green Marine Conference in 2005, over 70% said, they would be back this year. That means there will be limited space to hear informative presentations on the sustainability of the marine sector including the social/labour, economic, and environmental aspects that effect the West Coast of British Columbia. With our marketing program starting to kick into high gear, and only 120 seats available, you must register now to be a delegate at this years Symposium “Sustainability in the Marine Industry - Charting a Course”.

The program and list of speakers can be found on the symposium web page. Speakers have been selected so that problems common to the whole industry such as aging population and it’s effect on human capital, new or pending environmental regulations etc. can be openly discussed. Discussion panels at the end of each of the two days will allow the audience to participate and have their particular problem or solution discussed.

Exhibitors will also be in attendance and frequent coffee breaks will allow you to explore their displays and find out further information on products and services offered by the exhibitors. Besides the informative symposium program and exhibition, it is a great opportunity to network and expand your business contacts.

You must register to attend and you must register early to avoid disappointment. Remember, there are only 120 registrations available. Register now to guarantee your place. Go to to download the Registration and Exhibitors Form and fax it to 250-652-9476.

Contact any of the Symposium Contacts on the website for further assistance.
