China Ocean Technology Conference and the OceanTech Program 2021- Asia's Ocean Business Solutions Demonstrated Live at Zhoushan, China

China Ocean Technology Conference, attended by China's top academic members and international scholars, is organized by Zhejiang University and the Committee of Ocean Technology System (OTS), Chinese Society for Oceanography, biennially.  The national conference is now permanently taking place in Zhejiang University’s Zhoushan Campus.  The forth one, held in May 2019, saw the participation of 600 experts from the ocean technology sector, who met in Zhoushan, China's leading marine cluster & world renown ocean city, to exchange know-how and to discuss the latest trends, R&D and applications.

The speaker line-up was impressive, with some of most renown academicians and experts from the field in the auditorium.  The meeting involved delegates from across the nation, as well as visiting international experts.  

OceanTech International Symposium and OceanTech Program

With the support of the IEEE OES Shanghai Chapter and SUT China Branch, OceanTech International Symposium has been launched as part of an expansion initiative of the national conference in 2019.

The  China Ocean Technology Conference and the newly launched OceanTech International Symposium form part of an umbrella program -- OceanTech Program -- that unfurls into an exhibition, co-located conferences, technical seminars, workshops, and live demonstrations.  A guided tour has been hosted for delegates to visit some of the most important ocean facilities in Zhoushan. OT Talent Club continues to serve career development for China’s rising stars.


The OceanTech Program is an international showcase of the latest know-how & live demos, conceived and realized by China’s own ocean community. It is a unique opportunity to meet with old customers, exchange new idea, build new contacts, promote new products, find distributors and learn the latest developments in China through networking with the nation’s ocean community.

Why Zhoushan?

The OceanTech Program (OT 2021) will be hosted at Ocean College, Zhejiang University (Zhoushan Campus).

Zhoushan, China’s largest archipelago and one of the nation’s leading port cities, is a popular tourist destination in Zhejiang Province. It is home to Ocean College, Zhejiang University.

In addition to Zhejiang University, Zhoushan’s local government has established collaboration with Beijing University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, as well as the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Second Institute of Oceanography (MNR).

With State Council’s approval to establish Zhejiang Zhoushan Islands District on 2011, it became the fourth national level new economic zone and the first with such status to build a marine economy, serving as China’s strategic oceanic window to the world.

Zhoushan’s key industries include: port and navigation services, ocean technology equipment, marine engineering equipment and shipbuilding, marine tourism, marine sourced energy production, marine mining and mineral extraction, marine biotechnology and modern marine fisheries.

In 2017, Ningbo - Zhoushan port has topped global port rankings by capacity for the ninth straight year, while becoming the first port with an annual handling capacity of more than a billion tons.  Zhoushan is also a world renown ship maintenance base, with Xinya Shipyard Company, one of China’s top three shipping repair companies, located in Liuhuan.

OceanTech Program (OT 2021) Venue – Zhoushan Campus, Zhejiang University


Ocean College, Zhejiang University (Zhoushan Campus), is located on China’s largest archipelago and in one of China’s leading port cities - Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province.

About Together Expo Limited

As the Middle Kingdom’s Initiatives deepen to integrate the region’s economies through advancing infrastructure and tighter and broader exchanges, Together Expo’s role to engage the business and public communities worldwide culminates when the OceanTech Program (OT) was launched in May 2019.

Since its incorporation in 1992, Together has organized shows covering an array of sectors – wherever more sophisticated technology is needed to modernize China’s own industries. As China became the World Factory, energy and resources were vital to the country’s growth, Together consolidated its resources into the energy fields to stage up Asia’s premier China Coal & Mining Expo and China’s only national scale geology show.  Both Together Flagships are hosted in the capital Beijing.

As China emerged as a global investor and cross-border venturer, Together captured the change, and has now entered into the ocean that connects all the continents of the world.
