Following last year's sell-out success, the Cornwall Marine Conference is returning to Falmouth for the third year in a row.

On Thursday 14th November representatives from marine businesses in Cornwall and further afield will gather at the National Maritime Museum Falmouth for networking and thought-provoking talks by industry-leading specialists, accompanied by pasties and wine.

This year's theme is Cross Industry Learning. Our event speakers will be exploring how the marine sector can innovate and grow, based on the technologies and developments in other business areas.

There will also be an exciting new afternoon workshop, where attendees can discover the incredible world of virtual reality. Guests will be able to get hands-on with VR platforms and headsets, plus discuss the possibilities of VR for their business with the exhibitors.

The team behind the CMC are all local firms who are committed to the growth of the marine industry in the South West. Fastnet Marketing are marine marketing specialists, PKF Francis Clark are experienced accounts working in the sector, and Stephen Scown solicitors have a specialist marine legal team.

If you would like to find out more about the Cornwall Marine Conference 2019, and to purchase a ticket to come along and experience the event for yourself, please visit our website - www.cornwallmarineconference.co.uk.
