Attendance at the 11th North Atlantic Seafood Forum (NASF) conference is set to soar 25 percent on 2015. Over 900 delegates will attend over the period March 1-3. More than 300 companies from 35 countries are coming with more than 125 CEOs in the audience.
Says NASF Managing Director Jorgen J Lund: “We are truly excited about this major uptick in delegate registrations which has taken us a bit by surprise. However, it shows the growing importance of the seafood industry in the world food sector. It also reflects the fact that here in Norway, we now say 'Fish is the new oil'.
"The seafood industry in Norway is gearing up to become one of the most important industrial engines in the years ahead, as we are looking to adapt from a heavily oil and oil services influenced economy. Another factor - NASF this year has an outstanding and expanded program delivering real value – with 110 speakers in 12 seminars over 3 days, covering a wide range of topics and themes. Also, NASF has become a renowned centre for conducting business with so many top-executives’ taking part."
NASF 2016 is focusing on Global Seafood trade and market access – Seafood in a new geopolitical role. NASF continues to explore seafood’s geopolitical role – highlighting the ever increasing importance of our industry in the world’s expanding food trade. Seafood products are among the most widely traded commodities in the world, totalling some USD 125 billion per year.
