The blue economy is predicted to reach $3trillion by 2030 with the global underwater segment forecast to grow from £50bn to £140bn per annum by 2035, while analysis by the UK Defence Solutions Centre (UKDSC) highlights a total global maritime market worth almost $800billion to 2029 with the underwater market forecast to be worth $287billion.

This presents unprecedented opportunities for the UK’s underwater and defence industries.

This major new ‘in-person’ event will offer all companies, whether existing participants, new or prospective entrants to the sector the opportunity to hear from the Royal Navy and key industry leaders such as our sponsors Thales and SeeByte, highlight your own activity through an ‘open mic’ slot and explore future opportunities and collaborations through networking session to make sure our sectors make the most of this global sector growth.


The event will consider the most important opportunities for industry to engage in this critical sector:

  1. New build submarine and export opportunities 
  2. Subsea CNI protection, 
  3. Subsea nuclear, new technology and capability development 
  4. Subsea sustainability in design, operation and decommissioning
