Event organisers, Mercator Media are pleased to announce that the dates for the 12th Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition, Awards and Conference will be 13-15 September 2017. Following feedback from the 2014 exhibitor survey, and meetings with the exhibition’s advisory board these dates fall on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to meet exhibitor wishes.
Dubbed IceFish, the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition and Awards celebrated its 30th anniversary since the event began during the 2014 exhibition, which was the 11th in the series and has seen the exhibition more than double in size over the past decade, with visitor attendance increasing by 12% to 15,219 compared with the previous event in 2011.
A must for all commercial fisheries organisations and associated businesses, the three year cycle of the show is a direct response to the wishes of the exhibiting companies, as it ensures they have new products on display at each event.
In addition to the exhibition itself, an Awards ceremony recognizes and rewards excellence within the Icelandic and international commercial fishing industries, plus the 2nd IceFish Conference will also run alongside the event, focusing on ‘Fish Waste for Profit’ it will address the issues and techniques of how to utilise the entire fish, maximise returns and provide insights into organisations already involved in the process.
