Following the success of the inaugural online only event last year, the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) is delighted to present Marine Surveying International Fest II in two parts. We have lined up a feast of education and information for yacht and small craft surveyors on Tuesday 10th December (view the speaker schedule) and for commercial ship surveyors on Thursday 12 December (view the speaker schedule) – both commencing at 06.00 UK time.
