Marine Autonomy & Technology Showcase  2018

12 - 16   November 2018


MATS 2017 was our most successful event ever, attracting over 577 registered delegates over the three days from over 8 different countries, and also factoring in presentations from the US, Sweden, Germany and Norway.  MATS 2017 expanded beyond developments here in NOC, to a celebration of key developments across the sector from both Industry and the Research Community.  Having so many people from the community here at the NOC for this week, created a real buzz providing a wealth of networking opportunities with key decision makers for all those that attended.

We do thank all the members of our Steering and working Groups and presenters who helped shape this year’s event, and we look forward to working with an even greater number of representatives on this next year to make MATS 2018 the must attend event for the sector.
