ACG Aqua Nor 2009 tours
The Aquaculture Communications Group (ACG) is offering several tours in conjunction with Aqua Nor 2009, which is taking place in Trondheim, Norway, on August 18-21, 2009.
In collaboration with our Norwegian industry contacts, ACG is organizing a full week of activities in and around the Aqua Nor trade show followed by three optional tours to enhance learning and business networking opportunities by visiting a wide variety of production, research and development, academic and government facilities showcasing Norwegian science & technology.
“We are building on our experience from organizing science and technology missions to Aqua Nor 2003 and AquaVision 2004 to provide a much richer learning experience for our tour participants,” says Dave Conley, ACG Senior Consultant. “We have put together three tours following the trade show to allow participants to really see the range and depth of Norway’s aquaculture production, science & technology expertise. This knowledge and technology can be transferred anywhere in the world.”
The tour starts in Trondheim with 3-4 days at Aqua Nor followed by optional 2-4 days of aquaculture site visits/meetings:
Option #1 – Trondheim and surrounding region
Option #2 - The Lofoten Islands and Tromsø
Option #3 - Bergen and/or Stavanger and surrounding region
“Aqua Nor is the largest cold-water aquaculture industry event in the world. Having been founded 30 years ago, and running biennially, Aqua Nor normally attracts 15,000-20,000 visitors from more than 50 countries. It is the one place where you can see all the innovations, products, services, and research and development projects of relevance to the industry,” said Tor-Eddie Fossbakk, ACG Senior Consultant.
