Interspill 2022 will be held at the RAI Exhibition and Conference Centre in Amsterdam from 21-23 June 2022. Interspill is expected to attract over 1,500 delegates, visitors and exhibitors from 70+ countries.
The concept of Interspill was launched over 20 years ago and was designed to address the changes taking place in the world of marine spills at that time. Innovation and development in shipping has seen a significant reduction in the number of spills. However, they still occur. Any harm caused by pollution must be prevented and if this is not possible must be cleaned up quickly and thoroughly be it at sea or on land. The shipping and oil and gas industries are undergoing significant change with the drive to reduce emissions, greater automation, emerging fuel technologies, increasing shipping volumes and greater diversity at sea. Aged infrastructure needs constant monitoring and could lead to more on-land spills.
The event will be held over three floors of the centre with an Exhibition on the ground floor which will also host Innovation, Training and Industry workshops and seminars. The Mezzanine floor will be used for the Opening and Closing ceremony, some conference topics and for major product or innovation launches. The Conference will be held on the third floor in a fully automated venue with ample seating. Most conference topics will be held here but there will be a flow of topics across all three floors of the exhibition to encourage activity throughout the event.
Interspill is owned by European spill industry trade organisations; UK and Ireland Spill Association, NOSCA and SYCOPOL. The Conference and Exhibition is managed by the owners with the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the International Oil Pollution Convention Compensation Funds (IOPC Funds), the International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF), the global oil and gas industry association for advancing environmental and social performance (IPIECA), the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), and the Centre of Documentation, Research and Experimentation on Accidental Water Pollution (CEDRE).
