The Almighty God has granted the Sultanate of Oman a distinguished geographic location, which made the country a pioneer in maritime sciences. This, in turn, has enabled the Sultanate to establish a deep-rooted marine heritage which reflected the extent of advancement and prosperity the Omanis had achieved in ship-building industry and maritime sciences. As a consequence, the Omanis were able to expand their maritime sovereignty where they crossed with their ships and naval fleets the word’s continents. Hence, they were a truly maritime nation, which contributed greatly to the spread of Islam in the lands with which they had contacts; and this contributed to enhancing the commercial ties and civilizational connections with ancient and modern civilizations such as Mesopotamia, North and West Africa, China, India and Southeast Asian countries and USA. Despite the peace culture, which had been adopted by Omanis on their travels, they were not deedless to boost their maritime sovereignty and to become a formidable power to defeat their enemies, expel them from the Sultanate and even chase them overseas and extend the Omani influence in the Indian Ocean.

     The conservation of the Omani maritime heritage is a national responsibility due to its political, economic, social and cultural values and its role in enhancing the national identity among people. Thus, enhancing people awareness is quite crucial to build up a generation that is concerned with marine sciences, shipbuilding and develop their understanding of challenges and perils that threaten that Omani marine heritage and their necessary contribution to preserve it.

     Based on the importance of the preservation of Omani marine heritage, the Maritime Omani Heritage and Its Exhibition conference would be a golden opportunity to present such heritage which was acknowledged at the domestic, regional and global levels or across spaces and times and made Omanis the sea lions at some periods of history and the focus of world attention by scholars and researchers and hence the necessity for such heritage to be studied in-depth.
