CSSRA Annual Conference Set For February 10-11 In Montreal, Canada

All speakers have now been confirmed for the sessions of the Canadian Shipbuilding and Ship Repairing Association's (CSSRA) 38th Annual Technical Conference, CSSRA president Henry Walsh recently announced. The conference will be held Monday, February 10 and Tuesday, February 11,1986 in Montreal's Queen Elizabeth Hotel and is expected to attract members of the marine community from across Canada and around the world.

"Next year's conference will include the first ever Canadian Shipbuilding & Offshore Exhibition (CSOE '86)," Mr. Walsh noted.

"By incorporating CSOE '86 into our technical conference, we expect to attract large numbers of exhibitors to display or explain their goods and services to the marine industry. The estimated development costs of the Hibernia oil project off Newfoundland are $5 billion, and 50 percent of these expenditures will be marine-related. This demand could mean employment opportunities and spin-off industrial benefits if sourced in Canada.

CSOE '86 will play a major role in highlighting what equipment and services are available from Canadian industry. The exhibition, located on the convention floor, will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. on Monday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday." The technical conference open sessions will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 11 with presentations in two adjacent meeting rooms. That evening a banquet will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the hotel's Grand Salon. Registration for all functions will be held both Monday and Tuesday on the mezzanine level.

The CSSRA Annual Technical Conference is the largest and best known marine technical conference in Canada. Last year over 800 people attended the conference, including the international media and Canadian Government officials.

For additional information on the conference, contact CSSRA secretary/ treasurer Mrs. Joy Mac- Pherson, Suite 801, 100 Sparks Street, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada KIP 5B7; telephone (613) 232- 7127.
