One of the greatest skills a Marine Engineering professional has, is knowing when you need assistance to make things truly awesome. The organizing committee realized that to continue the great professional experience that is Mari Tech, an experienced guide is most helpful. To that aim, Mari Tech 2018’s volunteer organizing committee has engaged the services of highly experienced, and reputable conference management firm, Podium to assist us in delivering a top notch professional experience.


Mari Tech is the annual conference of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE), a “not for profit” association of professionals. Held annually since 1976, this premier, national event is the only one of its kind in Canada. It is a great opportunity to learn about the latest developments, touch and feel the most modern technologies, and network among highly talented peers.


Each of the last five conferences has out performed the previous, in terms of experience and achievements, from Mari Tech 2017 in Montreal, 2016 in St John’s, 2015 in Niagara, the conference has been a critical part of getting highly skilled maritime professionals in one place, to communicate new ideas and trends. Mari Tech 2018 will continue to build on this success.

As we well know, this industrious community is built on relationships, and just because we have engaged professionals to help deploy this grand affair, it does not mean we are out of touch. Feel free to reach out to any Mari Tech 2018 Organizing Committee members at any time, to have your questions and observations addressed. We are here to make sure your experiences as a delegate, speaker, exhibitor and sponsor exceed your expectations.
