STX Marine (STXM) is pleased to announce its attendance and sponsorship of the 2012 Offshore Patrol Vessels Latin America conference held on May 21-22 at the Centro de Convenções Bolsa do Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The conference, hosted by IQPC, takes an in-depth look into the Latin American marine market with direct insight from senior Brazilian Navy representatives and other Latin American Navies. As this is a collaborative conference, where the Brazilian Navy is exploring requirements for patrol craft and surface combatants across Latin America, it will also identify opportunities for STXM to pursue in the future.
