Blue Tech Expo

2021 BlueTech Expo - Virtual Event
June 8-10, 2021

Co-located with Capitol Hill Ocean Week!

The International Ocean Science and Technology Industry Association (IOSTIA) is pleased to announce that the annual BlueTech Expo will continue in collaboration with Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW) June 8-10, 2021. BlueTech Expo has been held annually since 2018 in Washington, DC, but due to COVID-19 was moved to a virtual event in 2020 and will be offered online again in 2021. BlueTech Expo is the only industry-to-government conference held each year in Washington, D.C. The mission of BTE is help the ocean technology industry develop robust connections with government agencies and the military, and to encourage a strong, collaborative, and sustainable dialog between key decision-makers and technology innovators. At BlueTech Expo you will find the smallest tech start-ups to the largest contractors and all levels of government represented.

What’s the plan for 2021?

BlueTech Expo and CHOW are together!

In 2020, BlueTech Expo came together with the iconic Capitol Hill Ocean Week, providing a technology focused exhibition and enhanced content. While COVID has affected nearly all aspects of the industry, CHOW/BlueTech Expo saw participation grow to over 4,500 attendees and reached new global audiences through the 2020 online platform! While our events have run concurrently in the past, to bring higher value to attendees, offer convenience to government, and to leverage complimentary subject matter, both organizations have decided it was a “win-win” and will be collaborating to bring these two outstanding events together.
New in 2021, BlueTech Expo will be fully integrated with Capitol Hill Ocean Week and feature a combined virtual exhibition. Expanded 30-minute breaks between sessions will create more opportunities for attendees to interact with sponsors and exhibitors. This year will also feature a new technology platform that includes more robust visitor tracking, a streamlined interface, and improved user experience.

BlueTech Exhibits

Is the only ocean technology focused trade show being held in Washington, DC in 2021. BlueTech Expo is the best opportunity of the year to meet with a broad spectrum of technology product and service experts. From the largest industry leaders to small business certified companies, to cutting-edge emerging tech, do not miss this unique event that draws key decision-makers from government and industry! Exhibitors also benefit from a direct marketing program to over 500 government buyers.
