IIMS, the leading worldwide professional body for marine surveyors, decided it was overdue that marine surveyors have their own special day – a day that celebrates and recognises the importance of their profession. So, IIMS has created the inaugural International Marine Surveying Fest 2018, a 24 hour marine surveying online jamboree. The date for this innovative and eye-catching event, supported by Constellation Marine Services and the Nautical Institute, is Tuesday 6th into Wednesday 7th November. No matter what time zone you are in, or area of surveying or the marine industry you work in, the Fest aims to offer something of interest to you.
The Marine Surveying International Fest 2018 is an online only event and will be anchored and hosted from the IIMS head office in the UK. The 24 hour non-stop online marathon starts at 11.00 (UK time) on 6th November opened by Mike Schwarz, IIMS CEO in discussion with Capt John Lloyd, Nautical Institute CEO and running non-stop until 11.00 (UK time) on 7th November.
