The board of the Nor-Fishing Foundation has confirmed that Aqua Nor 2021 can go ahead as planned.
The Norwegian authorities have recently released updated guidelines for Covid-19 pandemic infection control stating that exhibitions now fall under the same restrictions as shopping centres, which means they can be held as a physical exhibition.
In light of this Aqua Nor 2021 will now be held in August both online and in person in Trondheim.
“It is with great joy we announce that we can finally meet in Trondheim once again,” said the company. “Rest assured, the exhibition will be planned and executed in accordance with all infection control rules and guidelines, to ensure the safety of all participants,” it continued.
“As already announced, Aqua Nor 2021 will also be conducted on our new digital exhibition platform. This provides even more opportunities for the entire industry to gather, as visitors that are prevented from attending physically can attend online – whenever it suits them,” it concluded.
The livestream comprises digital stands for exhibitors plus four parallel channels showing presentations, lectures, professional/academic/student programmes, panel debates and The Research Plaza.
