MASS16 – Maritime & Arctic Security & Safety Conference

© 2016 FrontLine Defence (Vol 13, No 2)

St John’s Convention Centre
27-28 October 2016
St John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador

MASS16 will once again focus on the challenges associated with both northern and maritime environments. The aim of this international conference – supported by the Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador – is to promote stakeholder collaboration, technological innovation, harsh environment R&D, and world-class education efforts that are contributing to various components of northern development.

Building on last year’s success, coupled with the growing demands across stakeholders concerning maritime and arctic safety and security issues, and for which one entity cannot achieve solutions or policy responses in isolation, we have selected “Converging Interests” as this year’s theme.

The two day conference will draw a diverse group of speakers and attendees representing government, military, Canadian and U.S. Coast Guard, industry, academic leaders, Northern Leaders, research and other key stakeholders; featuring prominent individuals with responsibility, direct involvement or connection to these sub-themes:

  • Northern Security & Surveillance
  • Search & Rescue Capabilities
  • Maritime Domain Capabilities
  • Port Security

Contact us to register, or for sponsorship and participation opportunities.

MASS16 follows the internationally-rotated Arctic Technology Conference being held at the St. John’s Convention Centre from 24-26 October 2016.
