The CLEAN PACIFIC Conference & Exhibition delivers solutions for spill prevention and response for oil and hazardous materials in the marine and inland environment. It brings together all parties responsible for prevention and response operations in the Western United States and Canada to discuss best practices and build interagency relationships vital to a successful response. CLEAN PACIFIC was designed to deliver a program that covers issues unique to the West, and the conference agenda is carefully built out by a group of experts representing State/Provincial and Federal Government, industry and non-profit partners in oil spill prevention, preparedness, and response.
Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 200-300 word abstract(s) online for consideration by Friday, November 16, 2018. All abstracts are reviewed for content and relevance by the planning committee and are selected by consensus.
