Sharing best practice by meeting


2021 slogan: Keeping diving relevant for the future

9th & 10th November 2021 – Scandic Flesland Airport

(Official reception 8th November @ 18:00)

The Seminar

NUI AS, on behalf of The Association of Operators for Hyperbaric Lifeboat Reception Facilities, would like to welcome to the next bi-annual Bergen International Diving Seminar on the 9th and 10th of November 2021.

The seminar will be opened by Mr. Olav Skaar from IOGP setting the tone for the seminar.

The seminar is the international industry’s main event for sharing best practice and improving the efficiency and safety of future operations. This is the reason the 2021 events’ topic, which is “Keeping diving relevant for the future”. The presenters from authorities, research institutions and major companies will be challenged to tell their view on this.

Despite the global challenges during 2020 and ongoing in 2021 we believe the seminar is an required event for anyone involved in the subsea intervention industry, and it is essential to meet in person rather to use a digital format as most people have used for the past year.

 We would like to assure everyone intending to attend, that we are taking every possible measure to ensure we have a safe event following both local and international health guidelines.

Target audience

We hope that this years slogan ” Keeping diving relevant for the future  ” and the presentations will provide all participants a view on how the industry will be in the future. As with anything, also the diving industry have changed during the last years’ health, economical and not least logistics challenges. How has the industry resolved all the challenges, and how will it meet the future? This will be the 27th seminar, and we are confident this platform provide an unrivalled multi-disciplinary perspective on current practice and research in progress within offshore commercial diving.

In these challenging times, we believe the 2021 event will provide an outstanding opportunity for all involved parties of our global diving community. We hope to have more participants this Autumn than last seminar (The 2019 seminar had 225 participants from 19 countries attending).

Official reception by Bergen municipality
