Marine Log carries on a tradition of marine industry information gathering and distribution that goes back to 1878. The company publishes a marine industry monthly log. It is dedicated to providing marine industry professionals with the information they need to enable them to design, build and operate vessels, rigs and offshore structures, profitably, safely, legally and in an environmentally responsible manner. It provides information primarily through the pages of the monthly print magazine, but an increasingly important activity is organization of conferences and trade shows. The conferences enable direct, face-to-face contact between industry professionals as well as members of the legislative and regulatory communities. Its Web site allows the company to give access to members throughout the world. Marine Log is located in New York City.
