As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to postpone the Fish Waste for Profit Conference that was due to take place from 24-25 September 2020 in Iceland.
Fish Waste for Profit will now be held as part of IceFish 2021 from 16-17 September 2021. We are currently in discussion with conference stakeholders and examining the possibility of staging an additional online offering in the Autumn/Winter of 2020 as a stand-alone event.
Marianne Rasmussen-Coulling, Events Director of Mercator Media Ltd, explained the decision, “Given the global restrictions on travel and the effects that social distancing requirements will have on our networking opportunities, the team at Mercator Media is examining alternatives and seeking the opinion of our valued speakers and supporters. There is also the added uncertainty surrounding further possible government actions and restrictions, both in Iceland and abroad. We would all prefer that this was not the case, but in the circumstances, we believe rescheduling is now the best option for our delegates, speakers and sponsors.”
The Conference Programme and format will remain identical and we are delighted to be able to extend the time available to new speakers who may wish to register their interest in this event.
We regret that we have had to make this decision but believe that this course of action is the best alternative in the face of the effects of COVID-19 and we look forward to delivering a successful event and meeting you in September 2021. We wish all of you in the industry a safe time over the coming months and we will see you next year!
