Subsea UK, the industry body representing British subsea industry, said on Monday that the Subsea Cables Conference would take place on Tuesday, September 18.
Industry experts will come together to discuss and debate a range of topics including opportunities, project developments, reducing operating costs and technological challenges for the industry.
Speakers on the day will include Justin Dix and Dave White of the University of Southampton; Ian Osborne of Wood and John Davies of Helix Canyon Offshore; Antony Zymelka from the European Subsea Cables Association; Mike Clare of the National Oceanography Centre; Saul Matthews of Synaptec and Phil Robinson of Bender UK.
The inaugural Subsea Cables Conference took place last year in Aberdeen and saw more than 100 industry professionals share knowledge and experience as well as explore future market opportunities.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “This event gives a unique opportunity for the key players in the subsea cabling industry to come together and discuss the challenges facing the sector and identify opportunities for growth in the coming years.”
Subsea UK will also be hosting its annual networking dinner in London on the day of the conference, where Neil Gordon will deliver a keynote speech on the latest industry developments.
The dinner, taking place at Skylon in the Southbank Centre, will also provide an opportunity to network with industry professionals from across the industry.
