US Hydro 2019 is due to take place on March 18 – 21, 2019 in Biloxi, Mississippi. US Hydro is a biannual conference hosted by the Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA). THSOA and Canadian Hydrographic Association (CHA) alternate the hosting of the two premier Hydrographic conferences in North America annually.

Workshops will take place on Monday with the Technical Sessions taking place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

The 2019 conference will be held at the beautiful Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. The exhibit hall and technical presentations hall will be co-located allowing for maximum interaction and networking discussions with exhibitors and presenters. In addition, the conference center is located within close proximity of the piers, not far from the exhibit hall, where exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase their vessels and products for on-water demonstrations.

The 2019 Conference Theme will be “Our Changing Oceans and Coasts: Driving Innovation in Charting” with RDML Shepard Smith, Director, Office of Coast Survey, slotted as the Keynote Speaker.

A major ingredient for the success of the conference is the exhibitors, support by government organizations, academia participation and individual attendance. In 2019 there will be room for some 72 exhibitors including industry leaders in survey services, software and hardware. Government, media and academia will also be represented at the exhibition.

Last year’s on-water demonstrations showed the latest survey and data collection technology. 


In 2017 there were nearly 600 attendees registered with right at 80 technical presentations and lightning round presentations. A total of 5 workshops were scheduled. The interest and attendance at the workshops were high.
