Why PanLogica is exhibiting at Aqua Nor this year
What is Aqua Nor?
Aqua Nor is the largest global conference focused on aquaculture technology. Based on past events, it's probable that more than 20,000 people will attend the four-day event during August 15-18, 2017!
Companies and research organizations from around the world travel to the biennial event in Trondheim Norway to present their latest innovations for the aquaculture industry.
Why the focus on aquaculture technology?
Advancements in aquaculture technology come in many forms, from biomass control to safety equipment to veterinary medicine to software. The companies and individuals presenting at Aqua Nor are unified by a focus on technology that will solve the industry’s challenges today and in the future.
This year's Aqua Nor Innovation Award recorded a 64% increase in applications (compared to Aqua Nor 2015) submitted from 14 countries. The increase in applications is confirmation of the aquaculture industry's drive for innovative technology.
Who attends Aqua Nor?
Aqua Nor attracts over 20,000 visitors from more than 70 countries. All the major aquaculture nations are present as exhibitors, as visitors, or in official delegations. The program includes numerous seminars, mini-conferences, presentations, lectures, and debates designed to update Aqua Nor attendees with the latest information.
Furthermore, aquaculture producers from around the world, working with a variety of fish species in differing environments, have the opportunity to discuss their challenges directly with exhibitors. In turn, exhibitors can explain how their technology may be able to help the producers tackle business hurdles. It is a fantastic opportunity for exhibitors such as ourselves to demonstrate our technologies to the global aquaculture community and for Aqua Nor attendees to engage with over 500 exhibitors from a diverse range of companies.
