UI 2013 A Preview

Underwater Intervention is once again set to take New Orleans by storm, scheduled to take place January 15-17, 2013 at the city’s ubiquitous Morial Convention Center.
Underwater Intervention is a not-for-profit industry conference and exhibition, jointly owned by the Association of Diving Contractors International and the ROV Committee of the Marine Technology Society.
The event is highly anticipated every year as it seamlessly melds a comprehensive technical conference with traditional exhibition and a full slate of social activities, all designed to ensure that subsea industry executives have ample opportunity to meet, greet, exchange ideas and conduct business.
In 1993, the first Underwater Intervention was hosted in San Diego, California.  Now, 21 years later, Underwater Intervention has grown to encompass more industries in addition to Commercial Diving and Remotely Operated Vehicles.  It now includes Manned Submersibles, Instruments and Sensors, Sonar and Acoustics, Ocean Engineering, Marine Salvage and Shipwrecks, AUV and UUV Technology
In January 2012, Underwater Intervention, held in New Orleans, covered more than 25,500 square feet of exhibit space, and hosted more than 2400 attendees from over 35 countries, and our technical program offered 110 presentations from industry leaders throughout the world. This year’s conference – UI 2013 – will include more technical program subject offerings for UI 2013 to satisfy the needs of our respective industries, such as Deep Water Projects and Decommissioning. 
Conference Registration is open and online at  Early Registration Discounts and Society Member Discounts apply until January 7, 2013.  Onsite (At the Door) Prices will apply beginning January 8, 2013
