2024 RTCM Annual Assembly & Conference

The Future of Maritime Communications and Navigation

May 6-10, 2024 - ONE OCEAN Resort & Spa - Atlantic Beach, FL  USA 

We are pleased to announce RTCM’s 2024 Annual Assembly and Conference will take place from May 6th to May 10th, 2024. Join us at the beautiful, beachfront ONE OCEAN Resort and Spa and Convention Center located in the charming oceanside town of Atlantic Beach, Florida, USA.  This event is open to the public, including both RTCM members and non-members, so we encourage you to attend for an exciting and informative week under the Florida sun.  As a bonus, this year’s event will be held concurrently with Digital@Sea North America 2024 with in-depth coverage of e-navigation topics.  Travel once, stay the week and participate in one or both events to learn the latest information and help shape the Future of Maritime Communications and Navigation.

The theme for this year's Assembly is "The Future of Maritime Communications and Navigation," featuring presentations by leading technical authorities, key government professionals, and industry representatives engaged in the development and management of maritime electronic systems. Sessions will cover developments in satellite and terrestrial maritime communications, shipboard and shoreside electronics, autonomous systems, as well as relevant technical standards and policy issues.

The RTCM program will begin on Monday afternoon, May 6th with a two-day technical program, an evening reception, and more.  The rest of the week will include the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) Task Force meeting, the 406 MHz Beacon Manufacturers Workshop with presentations by NOAA, Cospas-Sarsat, the USCG and other experts and Special Committee meetings on EPIRBs, PLBs, Electronic Charting and AIS.

For those interested in digitalization in the maritime community with a focus on activity in North America, you may stay for the Digital@Sea North America Conference on May 8th and 9th.  You may register for either event separately or for the combined event at a discount. 

Throughout the week, there will be ample time to engage and interact with speakers, fellow professionals, and representatives from RTCM's 140 member organizations.  RTCM Special Committees meet regularly throughout the year, and this annual event presents an excellent opportunity to learn about relevant technical and policy topics in radio and satellite communications and electronic navigation systems.  You will have the opportunity to share your experience, interact with key decision-makers in the maritime community, and shape the future of maritime communications and navigation systems.
