Marine Surveying International FEST 2018 6th - 7th November 2018

 The profession of marine surveying is set to be recognised with its own special day courtesy of the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS) on 6 and 7 November in a crazy but innovative way!

Most professions and activities increasingly recognise their own special international days. Three such examples are World Radio Day, World Puppetry Day and International Firefighters’ Day. And of course, a little closer to home, there is World Maritime Day too.

IIMS thought it was overdue that marine surveyors have their own special day – a day that celebrates and recognises the importance of their work and profession and promoting the vital role they perform to the wider marine world. So, IIMS has decided to create the Marine Surveying International Fest 2018, a 24 hour marine surveying jamboree. The date for this innovative and eye-catching event, which is brought to you in partnership with Constellation Marine Services and Nautical Institute, is Tuesday 6th into Wednesday 7th November. No matter what time zone you are in around the world, or area of surveying you work in, we hope to offer something of interest to you. The day will equally appeal to those who work with surveyors, or touch the profession in some way.

Peter Broad, will be participating in this great event and delivering a paper: ‘Big commercial shipbuilding – the challenges and highlights’.
