This three-day conference event provides a yearly review of status and trends in Ocean economic activity. The 2017 edition will be held in Halifax, Canada, November 29-December 1, 2017. The SOS is uniquely designed to bring together leadership companies from the diverse Ocean Business Community: shipping, oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, seabed mining, tourism, renewable energy, ports and dredging amongst other.
