In confirming the venue and date, outgoing Interspill Steering Committee Chairman Rob Cox said that 'the committee have decided to continue with a successful formula, and will again hold Interspill in London, working with our partner Reed Exhibitions. As in 2012, the 2018 event will be co-located with Oceanology International'.
The continuing success of Interspill, with over 1,250 delegates, visitors and exhibitors from 75 countries attending Interspill 2015 at RAI Amsterdam in March this year made it the most successful event in the Interspill series to date: during the 3 days of the conference, over 80 technical papers covered a range of topics including Emerging Technologies, Sensing and Surveillance and Future Risks.
The Exhibition was over 20% larger than in 2012 giving over one hundred companies the opportunity to showcase the latest technologies, services and solutions in oil spill prevention and response. As in 2012 there was a full programme of Science Workshops and Spill Industry Seminars held on the Exhibition floor, which contributed significantly to the success of the event.
The scope of the event reflects the strength and breadth of the organising Committees, which included the European Spill industry trade organisations, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues and Oil Spill Response Ltd., with support from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), International Oil Pollution Compensation Funds (IOPC Funds), the International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF) and France's Centre of Documentation, Research and Experimentation on Accidental Water Pollution (CEDRE).
Proceedings of the 2015 Conference, Workshops and Seminars have been published on the Interspill Ltd. website www.interspill.org
