The Seminar

NUI AS, will on behalf of The Association of Operators for Hyperbaric Lifeboat Reception Facilities, hold the next Bergen International Diving Seminar on the 13th and 14th of November 2019.

For the 2019 seminar we aim to repeat the previous 2017 success. Then 169 participants representing 77 Companies and Organisations in 10 countries enjoyed two very good days in Bergen listening to the 28 speakers and participating in lively discussions.

In 2019 the slogan for the seminar will be “Are we adapting to a volatile market?” and the presenters from authorities, research institutions and major companies will be challenged to tell their view on this.

Meeting Place

The Diving seminar is the main meeting place for professionals and academics in the commercial diving industry, and is a valuable arena for expanding your network. You will also meet people involved in other parts of subsea intervention industry.


We hope that this years slogan (“Are we adapting to a volatile market”) and the presentations will provide all participants a view into how the industry have changed during the past years turbulence. How has the operators, contractors and sub-contractors adapted?
