What is BlueTech Week?

BlueTech Week is all about the companies and the people driving the sustainable Blue Economy. It's the annual event where hundreds of senior international participants gather in San Diego to highlight collaboration and innovation.

The theme for BTW2020 is

AquaOptimism™, BlueTech & SDGs

The UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted in 2015 with 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  It is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. TMA BlueTech also embraces the idea of AquaOptimism™ - to think positively about the future of our water systems and provide forward thinking solutions to the current problems.

Consisting of 7 events over 5 days, #BlueTechWeek attracted 600+ participants from 16+ countries, 140+ companies and leading experts from academia, finance, government, and industry.

BlueTech companies and academic researchers have developed technologies to monitor and observe the earth's natural systems and are responsible for having developed our understanding the environmental challenges we face.

We believe that BlueTech will also provide the critical solutions to help address these problems and foster a sustainable Blue Economy.

BlueTech Week connects a sustainable Blue Economy globally year-after-year.
