38th Annual CSSRA Conference And First Canadian Shipbuilding & Offshore Exhibition

Montreal, February 10-11All speakers and topics have been confirmed for the open sessions of the 38th Annual Technical Conference of the Canadian Shipbuilding and Ship Repairing Association (CSSRA). To be held Monday, February 10 and Tuesday, February 11 in Montreal's Queen Elizabeth Hotel, the conference is expected to attract members of the marine community from across Canada and around the world, says CSSRA president Henry Walsh.

This CSSRA annual meeting is the largest and best-known marine technical event in Canada. Last year it drew an attendance of more than 800, including Canadian government officials and the international marine media.

Mr. Walsh notes that this year's conference will include the firstever Canadian Shipbuilding & Offshore Exhibition (CSOE '86), which is expected to attract large numbers of exhibitors to display and demonstrate their products and services to the marine and offshore industries.

The exhibition, to be held on the convention floor just outside the conference meeting rooms at the Queen Elizabeth, will be open from 3 to 7 pm on February 10 and from 10 am to 5 pm on February 11.

Of the estimated $5-billion cost of developing the Hibernia oil project offshore Newfoundland, some 50 percent will be marine-related. This demand, Mr. Walsh said, could mean employment opportunities and spin-off industrial benefits if sourced in Canada, as well as opportunities for companies in the U.S.

and other countries in the form of joint ventures.

The technical conference begins at 9 am on February 11, and will be open to all interested parties. Concurrent presentations will continue throughout the day in the adjacent Duluth and Joilet meeting rooms.

Copies of the papers presented will be available in bound form from the CSSRA registration desk at the hotel.

The meeting will conclude with a banquet in the Grand Salon beginning at 7:30 pm.
