OSM 2022 Exhibitors: Strengthen Connections and Partnerships with International Scientists
The Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022 is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). Through the combined power of these three organizations, along with the broader conservation-focused community, this meeting provides attendees the opportunity to bridge disciplines, connect communities, and make lasting partnerships.
The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. During the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet.
Why Exhibit at Ocean Sciences Meeting in 2022?
OSM 2022 is a partner with the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. This meeting continues the tradition of bringing together scientists from over 60 countries with expected attendance of approximately 5,000. The virtual meeting platform expands the audience of scientists, educators, government representatives, and industry leaders. OSM 2022 is an excellent opportunity to communicate with leaders in oceanography and related fields.
The on-site exhibitor fees have been reduced by 25% for the virtual environment,.
