Surface Warships & Offshore Patrol Vessels 2022 Conference

January 17-20, 2022- London, United Kingdom

By co-locating the leading, international Surface Warships and OPV conferences, we will begin 2022 with a large scale opportunity for naval leaders and professionals to meet in-person.

The meeting will provide shipbuilders, systems suppliers and naval solution providers with a critical mass of prospects and customers, all of who are keen to resume collaborating in a secure, face-to-face environment. The traditional January date for the Surface Warships event provided the nearest possible opportunity for us to get back to in-person business without disrupting our customer’s established schedules, and we want to go as ‘big’ as possible in terms of access and breadth of discussion so that we can deliver against the built-up demand in the market.

The track record of these two conferences attracting truly global participation is unrivalled, and the joining of these two, fundamentally international conference communities, will provide the best opportunity in the conference market to bring the world of naval end users to a single location.

We look forward to seeing you there.
