2020 Regional Marine Forums - cancelled

OCIMF have been closely monitoring the global situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) taking advice from a number of sources including member company positions on travel and attendance to industry conferences and events.  You’ll have noticed companies cancelling their employee’s non-essential travel and industry organisations cancelling or postponing their events to later in the year. 

Based upon the current situation, OCIMF has decided to cancel the 2020 regional marine forums.  We remain committed to our regional marine forums as an excellent vehicle for direct engagement with our marine industry partners and we fully expect to hold these forums again in 2021.
