Following celebrations to mark the 50th Forum earlier this year, THS UK is delighted to have been chosen to organise and host the next meeting. Led by Willian Heaps of Associated British Ports, its Southern Region committee looks forward to welcoming delegates and speakers to its regular meeting venue, the historic steamship SS Shieldhall based in Southampton’s busy Eastern Docks.
The Society accordingly invites prospective 15-20 minute presentations on latest developments in the diverse field of marine measurement technology.
