An Evening with Robert Ballard

This is a rental presentation
*All tickets are general admission.
Robert Ballard, Founder and President of the Ocean Exploration Trust and Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society, will be the evening’s guest and keynote speaker for the 2019 Annual Event hosted by The Manufacturers’ Association.
Ballard discovered the RMS Titanic in 1985, and has since succeeded in locating numerous other significant shipwrecks ─ including the German battleship Bismarck, the lost fleet of Guadalcanal, the U.S. aircraft carrier Yorktown, and John F. Kennedy’s boat, the PT-109.
The author of numerous books, scientific papers, and articles, he has been featured in several National Geographic television programs, including ‘Secrets of the Titanic’ and a five-part mini-series, ‘Alien Deep with Bob Ballard,’ streaming on Netflix.
He served in the U.S. Navy for more than 30 years and continues to work with the Office of Naval Research. A pioneer in the development of deep-sea submersibles and remotely operated vehicle systems, he has taken part in more than 155 deep-sea expeditions.
Ballard’s evening keynote will be followed by a brief meet-and-greet and book-signing opportunity.
Each year, the Association’s premier business networking social provides regional companies a wide variety of valuable sponsorship opportunities. For the 2019 year, additional sponsorships have been added – with previously available gold, silver and general sponsor packages (and the STEM Student Roundtable) being augmented by various new opportunities at The Pullo Center.
