The World Ocean Council is partnering with the City and the Port of Barcelona to develop a global Blue Economy hub, headquartered in Barcelona, Spain. In celebration of this new partnership, World Ocean Council will host two high-impact ocean events in this vibrant port city: the much anticipated return of SOS 2022, taking place 17-18 October; followed by the launch of BlueFIN 2022 on 19 October. Download the brochure for SOS and BlueFIN 2022.
General Registration is now open for the 2022 Sustainable Ocean Summit and Global Blue Finance Summit. Please note that WOC Members will receive a special rate for these events via email.
Agenda and speaker highlights coming soon. For more information, please email communications@oceancouncil.org
Both events will be hosted at World Trade Center Barcelona, a state-of-the-art conference center and architectural gem on the Barcelona waterfront.

Join us for several unique networking opportunities during SOS 2022 and BlueFIN 2022, including an evening at the Museu Marítim de Barcelona, alongside a life-sized replica of the 16th-century Royal Galley ship.
