Various professions and activities increasingly recognise their own special international days. Three such examples are World Radio Day, World Puppetry Day and International Firefighters’ Day. It is high time that marine surveyors have their own day – a day that celebrates their work and profession.
So, IIMS has decided to create the Marine Surveying International Fest 2018, a 24 hour celebration of marine surveying. The date for this innovative and eye catching event is Tuesday 6 into Wednesday 7 November, depending on your time zone of course!
IIMS will be preparing a major PR offensive ahead of the event, not just for the benefit of those in the surveying profession, but also for anyone who touches the sector, or engages with surveyors on any level, to promote the art of marine surveying.
Marine Surveying International Fest 2018 is an online only event and will start on 12 September at 12.00 and run until 12.00 the following day. Each hour on the hour, a new presentation will be delivered live by a presenter somewhere in the world on a surveying topic. For one fee, you can join the Fest taking advantage of as many of the 24 presentations over the 24 hours as you wish. And if you miss any presentations because the time does not work for you in your location, your fee gives access to the entire content after the Fest, which will be videoed. The programme is being put together now and more details will be announced soon. Look out for your invitation to participate.
