Aqua Nor 2017 - aquaculture technology trade exhibition

15 August 2017 to 18 August 2017

Held every two years, Aqua Nor is an aquaculture technology trade exhibition taking place in Trondheim, Norway. The previous event in 2015 was attended by approximately 21,000 delegates and 550 exhibitors from 27 countries. 

The aquaculture industry has grown tremendously during the years since Aqua Nor first opened, and technology, processes and services related to farming salmon, marine species, molluscs etc are represented at Aqua Nor. 

It offers an excellent opportunity to showcase Scotland’s aquaculture supply chain strengths to a global audience. All the major aquaculture nations are present, either as exhibitors, visitors, or in official delegations. This includes Norway, Chile, Australia, USA, Denmark, Sweden Canada, China, Taiwan, France, Spain and many others.

Aquaculture is an important sector for the Highlands and Islands and as such, HIE has committed to attend Aqua Nor to support a Scottish delegation in partnership with Scottish Development International. 

Who should attend

This event represents significant trade opportunities for businesses working in the aquaculture supply chain e.g. in breeding, feed and feeding regimes; biomass control; construction and operation of floating cages, nets, safety equipment; well boats, handling of fish, veterinary medicine, and vaccines. 

Benefits of attending 

The focus of the Scottish Pavilion will be on supporting Scottish businesses who are exploring international markets in this sector and are looking for buyers, distributors or partners for their products and services.

Businesses can register their interest and apply for dedicated space at the Scottish Pavilion. Those not taking space, or who have their own stand at the event, can use the Scottish Pavilion as a touch down space. 

HIE and SDI will include all businesses in the Scottish delegation in marketing and networking activities.
