Oi24 Announces ON&T as Official Ocean ICT Media Partner

The co-located event is designed to connect ocean data providers with end-users

London, UK – 9 October 2023 - The organizers of Oceanology International 2024 (Oi24) today announced Ocean News & Technology (ON&T) as the official media partner for Ocean ICT. As a co-located event within the main exhibition hall at London’s ExCeL, from 12–14 March 2023, visitors to Ocean ICT will be able to engage with information and communication technology (ICT) experts and discover how recent breakthroughs are facilitating a smarter, more sustainable ocean through greater connectivity.

As the coastal, offshore, and ocean industries seek to futureproof long-term exploration efforts and development plans, there is a pressing need for innovative and interoperable solutions to help facilitate efficient ocean data collection, transfer, storage, and analytics, and Ocean ICT is designed to create a much-needed forum for ICT stakeholders to congregate and collaborate in this space.

The partnership between Oi24 and ON&T will help establish Ocean ICT as a unique space to connect AI, communications, satellite, IT, and IOT solutions providers with key marine and ocean data end-users from around the world.

“The collaboration will help to broaden the reach and influence of Ocean ICT within Oceanology International, and it will offer those exhibitors who are investing in the event a voice through ON&T’s various media channels, and thus a greater platform with which to showcase their products and knowledge,” said David Ince, Oceanology International Portfolio Director. “This, in turn, will help engage wider audiences and create deeper relationships for those looking for smarter, more sustainable ocean connections.”

Mike Enser, Oi24 Marketing Manager, added: “We are delighted to welcome the ON&T team closer to the planning of Oi24 and the much-anticipated Ocean ICT. They are clearly passionate about delivering the latest news, insights, and case studies to their growing legion of readers and subscribers, and we look forward to working with them to inject the same editorial enthusiasm into our inaugural Ocean ICT in March 2024.”

ON&T Managing Editor Ed Freeman commented: “This is an exciting step for the ON&T crew. We are long-time supporters of Oceanology International, and when the event organizers approached us earlier in the year, we agreed to explore new ways to leverage each other’s expertise and resources to create something new and compelling that puts marine and ocean ICT at the forefront. Ocean ICT will be ‘Powered by ON&T’, and we’ll be delivering insights and articles from the exhibitor base, sure to energize our readership. You will be able to find us on stand R201 during Oi24.”
