Clean Marine Innovation Showcase

Home   Events   Green Tech Boat Show Summit

Thursday 16th June 2022

The scope of the Green Tech Boat Show has expanded this year to incorporate a new and exciting trade element. Owing to collaboration between MDL and Maritime UK South West, the first day of this year’s show will feature the Clean Marine Innovation Showcase, a unique forum for government, researchers and businesses working towards a cleaner marine environment to come together to exchange ideas, highlight new innovations and network with likeminded organisations.

Ideal for both investors and innovators, the showcase will be invitation only and hosted at Plymouth University’s Marine Station which is adjacent to the marina.

The Clean Marine Innovation Showcase will include the following:
