44th Underwater Mining Conference*
November 1 through November 6, 2015
Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel • Tampa Bay, Florida • USA
*formerly the Underwater Mining Institute (UMI)

Our host, Odyssey Marine Exploration, has selected St. Petersburg as its preferred venue for this year’s Underwater Mining Conference. St. Pete, also nicknamed the Sunshine City is known for its pleasant weather, making it a popular destination for all forms of coastal recreation and commerce. Beyond St. Pete, Odyssey Marine has selected interesting destinations for our UMC Geotechnical Field Tours to showcase some of the fascinating geological, coastal and marine characteristics of Florida.

The Tampa International Airport is probably best for UMC participants to reach St. Petersburg with car rentals or with convenient shuttles and taxis easily accessible to visitors. Once checked into the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel there are any attractions within easy walking distance and also a complimentary shuttle service that operates within a 3-mile radius.
