You can expect to be on site at COVE for our event from 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM. You will have access to 50+ companies on site who will be demonstrating their latest and greatest ocean technology innovations. There will be some on-water demonstrations you will be able to witness (big and small), along with tabletop demonstrations in our tents, at our Bays, and throughout the site. There will also be some indoor AV-style presentations from select companies. Throughout the site there will be seating available. Upon arrival, coffee and light snacks will be available for guests, and a buffet lunch will be served at noon.
