TMA’s Powerful Events Calendar, 2023

Robust Events + Commercial Opportunities = Solving Critical Ocean and Water Challenges

Never has there been a better time to be (or become) a member of TMA BlueTech.

As a member-based organizer, we are constantly focused on opening commercial opportunities for our members. And we’ve found that the very best way to connect our companies to opportunities is by facilitating robust events that bring together the interests that serve our member's purposes.

To live our mission in 2023, we are organizing two international trade missions, and eight events throughout the year.

Where the trade missions are involved, we are working with state and federal agencies to facilitate trade opportunities to foreign markets for a wide range of innovative BlueTech companies.

Where the eight events are concerned, we do not seek to simply feature panelists and speakers to a passively listening audience. Rather, we will seek to facilitate an actively engaged environment where all participants have the opportunity to provide their insights. This group-think approach is designed to generate primer-conversations that will be expanded upon at our big show - the 15th Annual BlueTech Week (November 14-17) in San Diego. Our intention with our events is 5-fold:

1. Feature new and innovative technologies in the ocean and water tech sectors;

2. Outline challenge areas to growth and implementation of new technologies in these sectors and identify possible solutions;

3. Facilitate discussions among participants that solve identified challenge areas;

4. Create dynamic connections and integrated, collaborative possibilities among participating companies that serve points 1-3;

5. Allow for participants to facilitate, and benefit from, commercial opportunities

H1 What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

H2 Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

H3 How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

H4 How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
