Business Development, iXblue (FR)

“iXblue was first invited to BlueTech Week in 2017. We were so impressed by the quality of the audience, the common will to drive a sustainable blue economy, and the business opportunities we found there, that we became a TMA member and made a point of coming back this year.

We were not disappointed. Amazingly, the 2018 edition was even better, aggregating more and more government agencies, scholars and companies together. We felt like we belonged, because of the common attendees goal, but also because of the fantastic organization and logistics put together by The Maritime Alliance. Thank you very much to TMA, and count us in for the 2019 edition!”

“If you have a business or interest in the sustainable Blue Economy, Blue Tech Week is the place to be. This international annual event is more than meet and greet, it’s an ecosystem that allow you to engage, find synergies and create partnerships. As representative of Fórum Oceano, the national BlueTech Cluster for Portugal and a proud member of the BlueTech Cluster Alliance, I found my time here very worthwhile and hope to have the opportunity to come back again next year.”
