PRESS RELEASE – 10 March 2017

UPDATE - INTERSPILL 2018, the European oil spill conference and exhibition will take place over 13-15 March 2018, at ExCel, London

The Interspill Committee decided to continue with a successful formula, working with our partner Reed Exhibitions. As in 2012, the 2018 event will be co-located with Oceanology International.

This will be the 8th edition of the event, which launched in 2000. In 2015, at Amsterdam, the event attracted over 1,250 delegates, visitors and exhibitors from 75 countries, making it the most successful event in the Interspill series to date.

The first Call for Papers will be issued in April, and will be based on preliminary themes including Surveillance & Modelling, Offshore Exploration & Production Risks, Shipping & Salvage, and Decommissioning.

It is expected that over 60 technical papers will be presented at the Conference, in addition to holding Science and Industry Seminars, Educational courses, and an Exhibition expecting to have over 100 companies and organisations represented. (book at ).
