Organised by the International Maritime Archaeological and Shipwreck Society (IMASS), the 40th International Shipwreck Conference is run by wreck enthusiasts for enthusiasts. 
Confirmed speakers include Professor Mike Williams and Mr Jason Lowther from the University of Plymouth. On the 50th anniversary of the Protection of Wrecks Act, Mike and Jason will look back at the legislation for protecting shipwrecks in the UK, discussing what has worked and what has not.
There will also be a lobby of stands showcasing various organisations within the shipwreck community. An evening event will be held at the Copthorne Hotel, approximately a ten-minute walk from the conference venue. 
Visit the Eventbrite webpage for the latest information, to book tickets and for any queries.

About IMASS

IMASS's aim is to provide a meeting place for divers, explorers, archaeologists and salvors as well as government and commercial organisations. The organisers are all divers with interests in maritime archaeology and history and the varied nature of the speakers reflects this. A conference can include a world renowned archaeologist alongside a treasure hunter, followed by a diver working on a local project.
This conference is not just for academics and is the only regular one of its kind in the UK (and one of the few in the world) where archaeologists and salvors can meet.
