Past event: Surface Warships & Offshore Patrol Vessels 2022 Conference

By co-locating the leading International Surface Warships and Offshore Patrol Vessel conferences, we will provide a single large-scale opportunity for naval leaders and professionals to meet in-person and share experience across the spectrum of operations.

The forum provides shipbuilders, naval architects, systems suppliers and solution providers with a critical mass of Navies, Coast Guards and other operators of the surface fleet, all of who are keen to resume collaborating in a secure, face-to-face environment.

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  to bring the world of naval end users to a single location after too-long apart.

We look forward to seeing you in-person in London.
