Aquaculture UK 2016 Set to Be Bigger and Better than Ever

8 April 2016, at 1:00am

GLOBAL - This year, Aquaculture UK, 25-26 May 2016, is set to be bigger and better than ever with over 130 exhibitors from around the world showcasing the latest in aquaculture health and innovation.

Held every two years in the small town of Aviemore, nestled in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, Aquaculture UK brings together leading scientists, companies, farmers and aquaculture experts from around the world.

As the biggest aquaculture show in the UK, Aquaculture UK 2016, is not one to miss. As well as a trade show, the conference will also feature a two-day seminar programme covering many of the industry's challenges, the importance of aquaculture training and knowledge transfer and aquaculture health and biosecurity, to name a few.

“The focus is on making sure the discussions at the conference reflect the most important issues relevant to this year’s visitors,” said Matt Colvan, Director at 5m Publishing.

Jonn Sólheim Thomsen at KJ, the largest supplier of cages and catamarans to the Faroese salmon industry and exhibitors at the event said: “We are coming back this year because Aquaculture UK 2014 was very good for us."

“We met many people from the industry and received orders on cages and catamarans. We are now looking forward to Aquaculture UK 2016 to meet both current and future customers.”

Gala Dinner

The popular Gala Dinner will also be held on Wednesday evening and offers you the chance to relax and mingle with friends and colleagues. Evening entertainment will be provided by Robbie Glen. With his 'dry Scottish wit and natural timing' Robbie is described as being 'one of the finest after-dinner speakers you're likely to hear'.

Knowledge Transfer

The sharing of knowledge to further the growth of the aquaculture industry is at the heart of the event. With this in mind, entry to the two day show is FREE, giving everyone the opportunity to meet with leading experts and decision makers or to talk about their latest research and developments.

Mr Colvan commented: “This ground-breaking exhibition, conference and gala dinner is recognised as the essential place to launch and promote new products, meet new customers, establish relationships with buyers and suppliers, and network with everyone from industry influencers to leading academics, hands-on researchers, government agencies and international journalists.”

David Mack, who founded the event, added: “Going forward, feedback has been taken from previous events to make this year’s show the biggest and the best yet.”
