AgraME and Aqua Nor Enter International Partnership
9th October 2017, Dubai, UAE: A recent partnership has been signed between AgraME and Aqua Nor, Norway’s largest exhibition dedicated to the burgeoning Aquaculture industry which takes place annually in Trondheim. The aim of the partnership is to work in close collaboration towards cross promoting the development of the aquaculture and fishing industry in both markets, as well as offering visitors to AgraME a more rounded offering of international suppliers from within these industries.
“It was a fantastic experience making the trip over to Aqua Nor to meet with the team and finalise this partnership. As Norway is a driving force behind the growth of important aspects of aquaculture such as food security, our partnership with Aqua Nor will bring that expertise to both our show and the wider local market” said Samantha Bleasby, Exhibition Director of AgraME. “We expect an increased number of exhibiting companies from Norway, who will no doubt be bringing the latest products and technologies with them to aid in the advancement of local and regional food security” she added.
Another key benefit of the partnership is knowledge sharing. With the support of Aqua Nor, AgraME is in a perfect position to ensure the latest trends in aquaculture are covered at the upcoming edition’s free-to-attend conference agenda. Still in its conception phase, likely topics to be covered will include sustainability within aquaculture, the investment landscape and solutions for food shortages across the region.
“We hope that this partnership can help us get a better foothold in the Middle East aquaculture industry”, Exhibition Director of Aqua Nor, Mr. Ola Eriksen, commented; “Our objective is of course to promote Norwegian aquaculture technology, and we believe this can be done by participating in shows like AgraME, and be having a presence in the region. First and foremost, we want to attract more visitors from the Middle East, because we see a very promising potential for aquaculture development here, and we believe that some of the companies that we work with at Aqua Nor can make important contributions to this development”.
