Marine Renewables Canada VIRTUAL Mission to ICOE 2021 – April 28-30, 2021

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Marine Renewables Canada, with support from ACOA and the Nova Scotia Department of Energy and Mines, is leading a VIRTUAL mission to the 8th International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) being held virtually from April 28-30, 2021. This years unique all-virtual experience will bring together international stakeholders, experts and exhibitors from the ocean energy sectors (tidal, wave, ocean currents, ocean thermal gradients) with content and networking opportunities—available from anywhere in the world.

Marine Renewables Canada has developed a robust virtual mission program for interested companies. Following is a summary of the mission activities that will be offered to all those who register to participate.

Additional details on the below mission activities can be found on our website HERE:

  • Canada Pavilion (virtual): This will be a large over-arching Canada pavilion that will include individual virtual booths for each participating company in the mission.
  • Full Delegate Pass: Each company will receive one (1) full conference delegate pass with their mission participation ($475-$650 US value). This pass will allow you access to all aspects of ICOE 2021 including sessions, keynotes, plenaries, networking etc.
  • Matchmaking Services: As ICOE 2021 will not have a dedicated B2B platform as part of their conference (aside from the exhibition live chat function), we have contracted Kinetic Cubed as the matchmaker to work with all mission participants to assist in identifying companies to meet and connect with.
  • Pre-Mission Webinars and Briefing Session: MRC, in conjunction with the contracted matchmaker (Kinetic), will host 2 webinars leading up to the mission. These webinars will provide companies with training / preparation for working at an event in a virtual environment and participating in virtual B2B meetings, an outline of all mission details, market intelligence, and provide an opportunity for participating companies to ask questions of MRC and Kinetic.
  • Digital Promotional Materials: To highlight Canada’s leadership role in the marine renewable energy industry and establish a global presence for Canadian firms, various digital marketing will be developed. Each company will receive design support for a one-pager digital promotion for their specific booth.
  • Support Staff: Marine Renewables Canada will be leading this mission and staff will be available to assist throughout the entire ICOE mission process.

Mission Registration:
Includes individual virtual booth (within larger Canada Pavilion), full delegate pass, matchmaking, pre-mission webinars and design of a digital one-pager company marketing piece (for virtual booth).
$400 + tax (per company)
