Ocean Business 2023 Recap
We were so grateful for another successful year at Ocean Business in Southampton, UK. This year, we sent a cross functional team consisting of sales, marketing, science, service, and more, to ensure that we had a large associate group on-hand that could answer a diverse set of questions.
A new initiative at our booth this year was the ability for attendees to choose to donate to an ocean-related charity of their choice in lieu of physical swag. Here’s how it worked: we allocated a set amount of total dollars we would be donated. In our booth, we set up a voting system where attendees could cast their vote with a darling sea creature figurine into one of three bowls that corresponded with a charity. The amount of votes were tallied up in each bowl at the end of the event, and the money was split and donated according to the votes. In short your participation makes a tangible difference!
We were excited to donate to the following organizations this year:
Thank you to all of those that contributed, in total – we donated over $2,000 dollars to these ocean-related causes. We look forward to supporting similiar causes moving forward.
Beginning on Monday, April 17, we hosted our traditional rep and distributor event, to bring together our phenomenal channel partners from across the globe that work directly with our customers to provide Sea-Bird Scientific solutions to their greatest challenges. We are grateful to be part of a community of those who are passionate about enabling the science that matters.

Thank you to everyone that came out to our rep event! It was such a pleasure to connect with you all.
Throughout the entirety of Ocean Business, our booth was consistently packed with passionate ocean advocates, scientists, and researchers, and more, who were all curious how they can utilize Sea-Bird Scientific instrumentation to power the data in their program.
