Mari-Tech 2020 Update on COVID-19

The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE) Atlantic Branch, host of Mari-Tech Conference and Exhibition 2020, Vision, Innovation and Trending in the Marine Sector, takes the health and well-being of our delegates, speakers, exhibitors and staff very seriously. The coronavirus situation (COVID-19) continues to evolve quickly in Canada, and we have been continuously monitoring and evaluating developments.

Given the current situation with COVID-19, we are committed to following Health Canada and government advice or suggested restrictions in the size of public gatherings. Therefore, CIMarE has no alternative but to postpone the Mari-Tech Conference and Exhibition 2020 scheduled at the Halifax Convention Centre, April 28-30. The conference will instead occur in the spring of 2021 once all arrangements have been reaffirmed. Further information on the status of the conference, including the revised date and other logistical details, will be announced following the advice of Canadian public health officials. Our event management team will be in communication with delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors in the coming days to clarify the next steps for the conference.

On behalf of CIMarE, we are very thankful for your continued support and patience as we respond to the events unfolding that are beyond our control. We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy through this challenging period.
