The event is already proving enormously popular, with 80 percent of tickets already sold. A limited number of tickets are still available here.

More than 100 speakers and panellists have been confirmed and this year. To set the scene, the forum will open with a leadership panel, consisting of the president of Cargill Aqua Nutrition, Helene Ziv-Douki; general manager of Omarsa, Sandro Coglitore; and chairman of Devi Fisheries, Rajagopal Choudary Chitturi.

Meanwhile the breakout sessions will feature industry leaders such as: general manager of Skretting Ecuador, Carlos Miranda; CEO of Marinasol, Roberto Ferron; shrimp buyers Maruha Nichiro and Hidetami Haruta; and managing director of MU Seafood, Shyamal Das.

A full schedule, including all confirmed speakers and panellists, can be found here.

The key topics for this year’s sessions will be:

  • The latest import and export trends
  • Feed manufacturing and feed ingredients
  • Strategies to sustain shrimp production in challenging times
  • CEO visions and investor reflections
  • Animal welfare and decarbonisation
  • Technology and innovation
  • Retail and consumption

This year the conference organisers, the Global Shrimp Forum Foundation (GSFF), are also funding a study to inspire discussion about how to promote global shrimp consumption. The preliminary results of the research will be presented and debated as part of the meeting. During an invite-only lunch, the world’s top producers will also discuss the status of establishing a global shrimp council.

With almost four months still to go, the organisers say that they already have 38 sponsors and eight exhibitors confirmed, but have a few additional sponsorship and exhibitor packages remaining. If you are interested, please contact GSFF.
