23/08/2016: Nor-Fishing 2016 a great success

As the doors closed on Nor-Fishing 2016, Managing Director Ola Eriksen is all smiles. “It has been a great success,” he says. “In fact, it has been the greatest mess ever!” (Mess in Norwegian means exhibition). 

The number of exhibitors increased by 25 percent from 2014, to 550. In fact, there was no more space to sell. The Nor-Fishing Foundation had to establish a waiting list for exhibitors as early as February this year. 

So the message is quite clear: if you want to exhibit at Nor-Fishing 2018 (or Aqua Nor 2017), you had better book your space now!

The number of visitors increased by almost 20 percent, to 17 000. And they came from all over the world. No less than 56 countries were represented. “The exhibition is taking on more and more of an international profile,” says Eriksen.

The activities during Nor-Fishing are also impressive: almost 60 seminars, mini-seminars, lectures, presentations and demonstrations have been held during the four days of the exhibition. Nor-Fishing is thus becoming more of a place for “professional updating” for the visitors, and this is an increasingly popular feature of the exhibition. 

The doors are closed, the stands are being dismantled, and it is for the last time in the old halls A, B and C. By the time the doors open for the next Nor-Fishing, on the 21st of August 2018, a new exhibition hall will be ready, with an additional 2 500 m2 of indoor exhibition space that will be able to accommodate even more exhibitors.
