DUBAI, 09 October 2017 : With an aim to work in close collaboration towards cross-promoting the development of the aquaculture and fishing industry in both markets, AgraME has inked a partnership with AquaNor, Norway’s largest exhibition dedicated to the burgeoning aquaculture industry which takes place annually in Trondheim.
“It was a fantastic experience making the trip over to Aqua Nor to meet with the team and finalise this partnership. As Norway is a driving force behind the growth of important aspects of aquaculture such as food security, our partnership with Aqua Nor will bring that expertise to both our show and the wider local market” Samantha Bleasby, Exhibition Director of AgraME said.
“We expect an increased number of exhibiting companies from Norway, who will no doubt be bringing the latest products and technologies with them to aid in the advancement of local and regional food security” Bleasby adds.
Another key benefit of the partnership is knowledge sharing. With the support of Aqua Nor, AgraME is in a perfect position to ensure the latest trends in aquaculture are covered at the upcoming edition’s free-to-attend conference agenda. Still in its conception phase, likely topics to be covered will include sustainability within aquaculture, the investment landscape and solutions for food shortages across the region.
“We hope that this partnership can help us get a better foothold in the Middle East aquaculture industry”, Exhibition Director of Aqua Nor, Ola Eriksen stressed.
“Our objective is of course to promote Norwegian aquaculture technology, and we believe this can be done by participating in shows like AgraME, and be having a presence in the region. First and foremost, we want to attract more visitors from the Middle East, because we see a very promising potential for aquaculture development here, and we believe that some of the companies that we work with at Aqua Nor can make important contributions to this development,” Eriksen concludes.
