Economist's World Oceans Summit- Date: February 24, 2014. Half Moon Bay - San Francisco, California
Ocean Recovery Alliance is proud to be an advisor for the Economist's World Oceans Summit. Their 2nd event is now scheduled for February 24-26th at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay, near San Francisco. Judging from the success and level of interest from the first World Oceans Summit in Singapore, where the World Bank announced their US$1.5bn Global Partnership for the Ocean, this event is surely to bring some excellent exposure and thought leadership together for the ocean's benefit. The event will bring together a program of more than 300 global leaders from various sectors and disciplines, including business, government, academia, international organizations and NGOs.
