THE MONTEREY BAY
A Leader in the Blue Economy

California's Blue Economy is a $50 Billion dollar+ industry. Today, Marine Science and the 'Blue Economy' directly affect various business and government sectors such as offshore oil and gas production, national defense, seafloor exploration, communications, agriculture production, renewable energy, weather forecasting and fisheries and water contamination to name a few.

U.S. Congressman Sam Farr will join over 20 Marine Science experts and trade promotion service professionals as presenters and panelists who will be giving a brief glimpse into the world leading Marine Science community of the Monterey Bay region of California.

For many years, in particular since its designation in 1992 as a National Marine Sanctuary, the Monterey Bay has led California's Blue Economy in research and education and has become a global leader in such sectors as abalone farming, aquaculture science, kelp farms research, climate change and sea level rise research and water quality, as well as other 'breakthrough' technologies, products and services addressing all other facets of the marine science industry.

This Marine Science community is now ready to extend their existing collaborations of 30 different marine science organizations operating in the Monterey Bay into the business side of the Blue Economy to develop bilateral trade and investment opportunities involving the export of products, services, technologies and expertise to foreign organizations throughout the world that need to address their Blue Economy challenges.

This conference will address all of these issues with the afternoon highlight of a special 'take-action' forum that will feature a 'lightening speed' discussion between the conference attendees and 12 different public and private sector trade promotion service professionals in California who provide trade financing for exports as well as marketing, legal, logistic, advocacy, global trade educational services and private investment.

This Marine Science event is produced by the Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA), TradePort and Brand Monterey Bay (BMB) in association with the Monterey Bay Crescent Ocean Research Consortium (MBCORC) and is the 4th event in succession on 'branding' and 'marketing' a world leading industry in the 'one-of-a-kind' Monterey Bay region.
