As hydrographic data gains more importance in marine exploitation activities and ocean protection initiatives, GCC governments are investing significantly in advanced technology for data integration, management and access.
The 2nd Annual Marine Data Infrastructure was built on the success of the 2016 event. This event will bring together marine data management experts, regulators, maritime sector stakeholders and technology providers to discuss ocean monitoring and data collection techniques, best practices and the latest technological advancements.

The ACM Interface+ Format
The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.
ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.
Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
