Ahead of the event, ICPC General Manager Mr Ryan Wopschall commented: ‘It has been a long road to get back to this point, but we are doing it—we will be in-person in Madrid in 2023! The Plenary has always been such a valuable venue for discussing the protection of submarine cables. If anything, the pandemic has showed us how vital this infrastructure is, and for that reason we have themed the event around the concept of resilience. As an organisation, we are also resilient, as is the submarine cable industry. Through the pandemic, the ICPC has taken initiatives to sponsor numerous research projects for the benefit of its members, we have maintained our relationships with our affiliate organisations, and our membership has grown to record levels allowing new relationships to be formed. On behalf of the ICPC, we look forward to meeting with new and veteran members, guest and invited speakers, and to rekindle the cornerstone of the ICPC—the annual Plenary.’
