Since its inception in 1984, the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition has become one of the world’s leading fishing events. Held only once every three years, the 2014 event covered over 13,000 m2 of inside and outside exhibition space. Nearly 500 companies showcased the latest developments in the commercial fishing industry; from the design and construction of vessels, through locating and catching, processing and packaging to marketing and distribution of the final product. The 2014 edition was the 30th anniversary and completely sold out of exhibition space.
The 2017 show will be the 12th in the series and follows a very successful previous edition, which saw a 12% increase in the number of visitors to 15,219.
The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 2017 will be much more than just an exhibition and conference, the 7th Icelandic Fisheries Awards, inward delegations and plant visits are well underway.
The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is a must attend event for anyone wanting to be updated on the latest technology, equipment and developments in the commercial fishing industry. More information on the Icelandic fishing industry is available here.
