About Underwater Intervention
Underwater Intervention is a not-for-profit industry conference and exhibition, jointly owned by the Association of Diving Contractors International and the ROV Committee of the Marine Technology Society. Until the early 1990’s, these two non-profit, professional organizations hosted separate conferences – ROV Intervention and the Diving Symposium. The increased common ground between the commercial diving and ROV (remotely operated vehicles) industries created an atmosphere ripe for a merger of the two conferences. In 1993, the first Underwater Intervention was hosted in San Diego, California. Now, 20 years later, Underwater Intervention has grown to encompass more industries in addition to Commercial Diving and Remotely Operated Vehicles. We now include Manned Submersibles, Instruments and Sensors, Sonar and Acoustics, Ocean Engineering, Marine Salvage and Shipwrecks, AUV and UUV Technology.
If you work in any of these industries, or offer goods and services to these industries, this is your conference.
In January 2013, Underwater Intervention, held in New Orleans, covered more than 26,000 square feet of exhibit space. We hosted more than 2450 attendees from over 39 countries, and our technical program offered 100+ presentations from industry leaders throughout the world. Special appearances from Don Walsh, Randall Abadie, and Jim Cameron's Team made Underwater Intervention even more memorable.
We are pleased to announce that UI 2014 will return to New Orleans, February 11-13. Please join us at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.
