About the event

COVID Update

Professionals involved in aquaculture will be happy to know that Aqua Nor 2021 will proceed as originally planned. The Norwegian government has announced a series of strict COVID-19 health and safety measures for large trade events. The Nor-Fishing Foundation has made sure that the exhibition grounds at Trondheim Spektrum are in full compliance and up to standard.

Aqua Nor 2021 will be a hybrid event. This means visitors can make the trip to Trondheim, Norway with no problems, but they can also participate digitally from the comfort of their offices. The digital offer is a great way to adapt to the challenges of the pandemic, while keeping the spirit of live trade fairs and exhibitions alive. 

Calling Card 

Aqua Nor is an essential event dedicated to fish management and innovations in the aquaculture sector. The international exhibition serves as a national meeting point between players in Northern Europe and the Scandinavian region operating out of Trondheim, Norway. Editions are scheduled every two years in the summer usually at the end of August. Programming spans the period of four days at Trondheim Spektrum. Business comes front and centre at Aqua Nor. Exhibitors are in the best position to meet with existing customers and network with new potential buyers. Because the exhibition is not run annually, there’s more buildup and trade visitors come with the intention to buy and have the budget for it. It’s also why Aqua Nor is the place where all the latest solutions and innovations are showcased.  

Business Potential 

Trade visitors attend Aqua Nor, because they want to see the entire value chain and they want to see quality. It’s what makes the exhibition one of the central events in Scandinavia. Exhibitors are specialized in feed and feeding regimes, biomass control, construction and operation of floating cages, nets, safety equipment and well boats, aquaculture technology, fish health, training, funding, quality assurance, fish farmer networks, grading, equipment, storage, processing, packaging and environmental protection. Exhibitor names you can encounter include Landbruk & Maskin, Cargill Aquafeed Ingredients, Copenhagen Subsea, KATAIX: SeaSolutions and KSK Aqua. Exhibitors are mostly based in the region with Norway and Denmark leading, but there are also exhibitors from Germany and as far away as Chile and the USA. 

Did You Know? 

Business makes for a big part of why trade visitors attend and part of that is seeing technologies and practices in action. That’s why an integral part of Aqua Nor are the boat rides taking visitors to Trondheim Fjord, where they can observe companies in their element and their day-to-day. The exhibition is also quite known for its excellent support program. Top actors in the industry and the best experts will be holding lectures, debates, presentations, seminars and mini-conferences. The concepts change every edition and one Aqua Nor edition never looks the same to another. One thing stays the same – the chance to gain international recognition. Start-ups, engineers and suppliers all compete at the Innovation and Environment Awards for top spot.

Past Editions

Each edition of Aqua Nor features new additions which help to diversify the event. One of the leading changes for the 2021 edition, for instance, was the event taking place as a hybrid event. It featured a physical exhibition complemented by a digital platform. The event programme for the 2021 edition included various highlights. Among them was the christening of a brand new service boat — the AQS “Tor”. Also, another event highlight was the More food from the ocean — Blue is the new Green Conference.  Many of the established events also received changes. This included the Best Stand Award featuring a digital category. Also, the presentation of the winners of the Norwegian Seafood Championship took place online. The digital platform broadcasted a total of 100 lectures. Attendees could also enjoy several new and old networking events. Among them is the traditional Gala evening. New additions included the After Fish — an informal event taking place at one of Trondheim's leading waterfront bars. Another new addition was the Aqua Nor Experiences. This was a series of guided tours showing some of the city's surrounding landmarks such as the fjord.
