It is the largest in the region congress and exhibition project. The leading Russian and international companies share here their experience in technological support, shipbuilding to offshore development, development of integrated marine structures.

The key event of the first day has become a Round table “The state and prospects of the modern Russian Navy for the development of hydrocarbon resources of the continental shelf of the Arctic".
