Buoy Workshop


Dear Buoy Workshop sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees:

Due to continuing COVID concerns and particularly the increasing delta variant cases and risks, the Marine Technology Society has made the decision to postpone the Buoy Workshop until the fall of 2022. The event has been rescheduled for September 19-22, 2022.

Deposits have been made for this event and we are asking all that have submitted payment to allow us to retain the funds and apply them to the 2022 event. If you will be unable to commit to 2022, please contact Kristina Norman ([email protected]).

If you have made a hotel reservation with the Hotel Ballast, contact them at 1-910-763-5900 to cancel your reservation. Be sure to also cancel any flights and/or car rentals that you may have made.

We are disappointed that we must postpone, but your health and safety are our top priority. We appreciate your understanding and hope you will be able to join us in the fall. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kristina Norman ([email protected]).
