Registration open and sponsor opportunities for 1st hybrid virtual Aquaculture Conference in West Africa

Thursday, March 18, 2021

The organizing committee of the West Africa Region of the World Aquaculture Society, African Chapter, is inviting industry stakeholders to sponsor its conference 2021 Aquaculture Conference in West Africa (WASACWAR). 

The theme of the conference is New Strategies to Promote Inclusion and Transparency in the Development of Aquaculture in the West Africa Region. West African countries have weak institutions which have paved the way for corruption, lack of inclusion and more and businesses cannot prosper under these conditions. “We count on your support to bring together the right stakeholders in building strong institutions so that businesses can flourish without much social, economic and environmental barriers,” the organization said.

The event will be a hybrid online event to be held from May 14-16, 2021, creating a unique channel to reach a global audience worldwide.

Available sponsorships categories are Bronze, Silver and Gold. For more information about sponsorships or about the event, contact info@wasacwar.com or visit wasacwar.com.
