Welcome to the 2018 Blue Technology Industry Needs Assessment.  As you may know, IOSTIA and Sea Technology Magazine collaborated to bring BlueTech Expo to Washington, DC this year.  As a part of our ongoing commitment to provide new and innovative business programs, we will periodically survey industry to better understand needs that could be met with new or realigned programs.  This survey examines aspects of face-to-face industry events and tradeshows.  We appreciate your responses and support!
