The Annual Sustainable Seafood Sensation Reception & Dinner that immediately follows Day One of the annual Blue Tech & Blue Economy Summit have elevated the “Maritime Gala Dinner” above and beyond “a celebration of all things maritime” to one of the culinary highlights on any seafood lover’s calendar. In 2012, under the capable direction of Chef/Event Architect Andrew Spurgin a dozen chefs prepared an array of seafood appetizers and a three-course dinner that rivaled any meal served in San Diego in recent history.

The lineup for this year’s dinner is still building, but with a growing list of vendors supporting the dinner, now including Catalina Offshore, capitalizing on the incredible biodiversity of the Southern California Bight is bound to tantalize and delight any palette. Do not miss out! This event has sold out the last two years!
