    This event is now sold out – sorry.

    On the evening of the first day of Marine Engineering – The New Wave, Thursday, June 12, there will be a special evening social event which will take place at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia, in downtown Victoria. The museum is located in Victoria’s old courthouse in picturesque Bastion Square, a short, 10 minute walk from the conference venue, at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort.

    The event will commence at 18:30 hrs  in the museum’s main gallery, where a no-host bar will serve beverages. The museum features a rich array of maritime culture and artifacts, sure to be of interest to our guest, if not the ideal place to network and socialized amongst peers.

    At 19:30 hrs, guests will be invited to the Mezzanine floor for a catered selection of fine local foods, served in a buffet style arrangement with wine, to enjoy amongst sea-faring exhibits.  The evening will conclude at 11:00 pm.

    We hope this will afford plenty of time to exchange ideas, discuss the conference presentations and make business connections for all in attendance whilst enjoying great food in a unique setting.

    About the Maritime Museum of BC

    The Maritime Museum of BC opened in 1955 as a naval museum located in Esquimalt. The Museum grew and in 1965 was moved to the former Supreme Court building in Bastion Square − the oldest surviving courthouse in the province. The Museum’s mission is to promote and preserve BC’s maritime experience and heritage and to engage people in its ongoing story.

    The Museum represents a rich link to the province’s legal and nautical roots. Here, among a vast array of artifacts, you will find fascinating displays on pirates, heritage vessels, shipwrecks and featured exhibits. It is also home to three significant sailboats each with their own incredible story. The Museum cares for more than 35,000 unique artifacts, 40,000 historical photographs and an internationally recognized chart collection. The Museum also delivers popular public and school programs featuring topics such as immigration, pirates and privateers, women at sea, and the fur trade.
