Nor-Fishing 2020 was a resounding success. The international trade fair adapted quickly to the big challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic and organised an entirely digital edition. This way the Nor-Fishing Foundation didn’t need to skip an edition and continued the conversation. There are already plans for Nor-Fishing 2022, which will return in August and as a live event. Organisers believe the only way to establish meaningful connections and partnerships is through trade shows held face to face. Trondheim Spektrum will work towards an event concept that creates a fully safe environment and uses all available COVID-19 protective measures in place. Right now there are no official dates released.
For over half a century, Nor-Fishing has been the go-to exhibition for the fishing supply chain that services the Scandinavian region. The Northern seas are known for their thriving fishing industry, which makes sense to host an international event for industry. You get to discover the latest and best in fisheries technology and related technologies and services in Trondheim, Norway. Nor-Fishing is typically held in August when the weather is at its best once every two years. Editions run out of Trondheim Spektrum and last for four days in total. It’s an exciting opportunity to break into the highly competitive Scandinavian market as well as keep an eye on the competition. The name recognition and prestige alone are reasons enough to reserve a spot for a trade show booth.
Nor-Fishing covers a lot of ground with its product portfolio. You see the latest innovations in fish processing, fishing equipment, electronics, vessel design, gear development, on-board handling, fishing ports, cooling devices, environmental protection, packaging and safety equipment. Who are the exhibitors that frequent the exhibition? You might recognize names such as Kongsberg Maritime, Optimar, Marel, Alfa Laval, Safepath AS, The Norwegian Fishermen’s Association and Kysthavnalliansen. The audience is mostly made up from the Scandinavian and European markets, which is not surprising. However, in recent years the number of visitors from the USA and Asia are steadily growing. We also have to note that Nor-Fishing is not just reserved for professionals, but also lets in the general public.

Nor-Fishing has also receive backing and support from the Norwegian Royal Family, which only makes it a sought-after platform for conducting business. Every edition sees a member of the Royal Family in attendance to show patronage. Back in 2014, trade visitors could even meet Her Majesty Queen Sonja in person. There are not only presentations and static displays at Nor-Fishing. Trade visitors can experience equipment and machinery in full operation. The guided tours are truly the most popular part of Nor-Fishing. You can get on a boat and visit the fisheries on the coast of Trøndelag for practical knowledge. That’s what helps buyers make up their minds and commit to large purchases. Editions also boast excellent support program from panel discussions to seminars, which change from year to year.
