Aqua Nor 2009
August 18-21, 2009
The Aquaculture Communications Group (ACG) is offering several tours in conjunction with Aqua Nor 2009. Here is your opportunity to experience the European aquaculture industry’s favourite event, with 300 exhibitors representing more than 600 manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world. See current developments in the fields of aquaculture technology, fish feed, fish health, quality assurance, training, funding, fish farmer networks, grading, equipment, storage, processing, packaging, environmental protection and distribution.
In collaboration with our Norwegian industry contacts, ACG is organizing a full week of activities in and around the Aqua Nor trade show followed by three optional tours to enhance learning and business networking opportunities by visiting a wide variety of production, research and development, academic and government facilities showcasing Norwegian science & technology.
The tour starts in Trondheim with 3-4 days at Aqua Nor followed by optional 2-4 days of aquaculture site visits/meetings:
- Option #1 - Trondheim and surrounding region
- Option #2 - The Lofoten Islands and Tromsø
- Option #3 - Bergen and/or Stavanger and surrounding region
Aqua Nor is the largest cold-water aquaculture industry event in the world. Having been founded 30 years ago, and running biennially, Aqua Nor normally attracts 15,000-20,000 visitors from more that 50 countries. It is one place where you can see all the innovations, products, services, and research and development projects of relevance to the industry.
As usual, booking your room in Trondheim during the week of Aqua Nor is a challenge as demand normally exceeds supply. Official accommodation agent, VIA Travel Tvete Arrangement, states that all hotel bookings must be made by May 1st with full prepayment by June 1st, we are accepting tour participants right up until July 31st and will secure accommodation as needed. However, the sooner you book your tour place, the better your chances of securing accommodation close to the exhibition site. Please sign up today!
