SOS 2019 is the first comprehensive global private sector event on investment and innovation for ocean sustainable development.
The World Ocean Council’s SOS is the annual gathering of the global Ocean Business Community dedicated to advancing private sector action on responsible use of the seas. SOS 2019’s chair is Frédéric Moncany de Saint-Aignan, who is president of the French Maritime Cluster.
