International Offshore Patrol Vessels conference 2016: enabling cost-effective maritime security

This proven annual event attracts senior navy and coast guard chiefs from around the world to discuss with each other and industry leaders the challenges of maritime policing: countering illicit flows including migration, piracy, SAR, pollution monitoring, fishery protection and EEZ patrol. Through assessing platforms and auxiliary technologies, delegates benefit from a clear understanding of the technologies on offer and the best path to balancing capability and affordability to help deliver optimum mission effectiveness tailored to unique national requirements.

Military and Industry working hand-in-hand to define a path towards cost-effective maritime security.

The forum benefits from our international experience and series of regional-specific satellite events to bring together the most relevant and thought-provoking conference agenda to date - with OPV operators and industry stakeholders taking part from the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.

To celebrate the conference's 11th anniversary year we’re going to Glasgow – the home of some of the Royal Navy's most illustrious vessels, including their new Queen Elizabeth-Class Aircraft Carriers and, of course, the River Class OPV. We are delighted to announce that our lead sponsor, BAE, will be conducting exclusive tours of their world-class shipyards for our guests, along with a visit to HMS Forth, the Royal Navy's latest River-Class OPV.
