Although there are still eight months until Aqua Nor 2013 opens its doors, many exhibitors are already busy planning their participation. “I don’t think we have ever seen such a great interest in the show at such an early date,” says Project manager Kari Steinsbø at the Nor-Fishing Foundation.
“Many exhibitors have already booked their stands, and several of the exhibition halls are actually fully booked now. Because of this, we have decided to use Hall G, which is very popular during the fisheries exhibition Nor-Fishing.
"We have also increased the outdoor exhibition area so that those who wish to have an outdoor stand have more choice. And then don’t forget Skansen, our waterfront exhibition space where you can show floating equipment in its proper environment!
“Because of the great and early interest, we remind potential exhibitors that it is important to book space as soon as possible. We will be posting maps of the exhibition area and the halls on our web site (www.aqua-nor.no) in late January. “
Many exhibitors and organizations hold seminars, mini conferences and presentations during Aqua Nor, and most organizers want to hold their event on the premises.
“We have some meeting rooms and conference halls on the grounds, but it is limited. Therefore: book early!” says Steinsbø. She also encourages Norwegian organizers to hold their seminars in English, since many of the foreign visitors have shown great interest in these professional events in the past.
Steinsbø also reminds potential visitors that the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) will be holding their annual conference, “aquaculture Europe ‘13” in Trondheim on 09 – 12 August 2013, just before the Aqua Nor exhibition, which opens on the 13th of August.
