There is just one more day until Nor-Fishing 2020 Digital goes live.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic the traditional fishing exhibition is going digital for the first time in its 60 year history.
The event will be broadcasted live over three days from 18 to 20 August and exhibition manager, Kari Steinsbø, reports that several hundred pre-registered visitors have already signed up for the free events.
“We think it’s great that the year Nor-Fishing celebrates 60 years will be the year when the first digital fishing event kicks off,” said Kari Steinsbø. “We have worked hard for our viewers to experience an exciting event – and we are really looking forward to going live on Tuesday,” she added.
Five hours of daily broadcasting will be akin to a live TV programme that the audience can participate in by asking questions of debaters or talking to exhibitors in digital meeting rooms.
Each day will be a mix of features with lectures from leading researchers, debates and highlights such as student features and a celebration of the exhibition’s 60th anniversary.
Going digital means that visitors can avoid the expense of travelling to the event and can participate from anywhere in the world. “If you are a fisherman and are at sea during the event, you can participate as long as you have internet access on your mobile phone,” said Kari Steinsbø.
The programme and how to register can be found at the Nor-Fishing website.
