Qingdao International Ocean Science and Technology Exhibition (OST) showcases the effort made by Qingdao Blue Valley to carry out the ocean international exchange and cooperation, play out the maritime initiatives of Qingdao, hammer out the Shandong Province’socean-based reinforcement plan, and build up its ocean international cooperation platformfor the "Belt and Road" so as to carry out the ocean-based country-boosting strategy of general secretary Xi Jinping.

The Exhibition is a brand exposition in the field of the ocean science and technology. It features the theme of “Explore the ocean with technology; Fulfill the dream with innovation”with the purpose to create the largest and most influential ocean scien-tech communication platform, tradeachievement platform and the product exhibition platform. With the support and assistance from the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Ministry of Transport, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the China Shipbuilding Industry Group, China Ocean University and other ministries, state-owned enterprises and universities, OST has attracted each year nearly 500 scientific research institutions, universities, and enterprises, accounting for nearly 12,000 professionals, from many countries and regions.
