Dubbed "the most important three days for Underwater Contracting," Underwater Intervention is slated to convene from February 10-12 in New Orleans at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
. With a full and diverse technical program and an impressive roster of exhibitors from around the globe, UI '03 seems to be on track to fulfil this claim.
New Orleans is historically a favorite venue for Underwater Intervention, and in fact the exhibition is scheduled to be held in New Orleans through 2010. The spacious Convention Center provides enough floor space for over 250 exhibit booths. For the 10th consecutive year Underwater Intervention is co-sponsored by the ROV Committee
of the Marine Technology Society
and the Association of Diving Contractors International
, Inc. The diverse conference program is divided into three tracks, and begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, February 10. Topics include Diver Training, AUV Operations, Navigation and Technologies, Inland Diving, and Underwater Welding, as well as a session on Legal and Safety matters … And that's just the first day. The ensuing two days are filled with a plethora of topics and speakers to interest many, ranging from Repair and Inspection to a Panel Discussion on Military and Commercial Cooperations and Offshore Operations.
