Seagriculture EU will convene next month in beautiful Norway.

The Seagriculture EU 2023 conference, the leading forum for the seaweed industry, will be taking place from June 21-22, 2023 in Trondheim, Norway. This two-day event will explore the vast potential of seaweed in various applications including feed, food, offshore cultivation, biorefining of seaweed, investment, and much more.

Six plenary sessions and a panel discussion will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and opportunities in seaweed. Top speakers from the industry will be on hand to share their experts-in-the-field insights and know-how. Additionally, the conference will feature poster presentations where researchers will present their latest findings.

The accompanying trade show will provide businesses a platform to showcase their products and services to other industry professionals, as well as facilitate networking and collaboration opportunities among the attendees. Coffee breaks, lunch breaks, and a delegate’s dinner will provide many opportunities to network with other industry professionals, as well as during the “Seaweed Happy Hour,” where attendees sample the latest seaweed delicacies.

“We are thrilled to welcome all seaweed enthusiasts to Trondheim!” said Silje Forbord from the event sponsor, SINTEF. “It is a unique opportunity for industry professionals to come together and learn about the latest developments. Seagriculture EU 2023 offers a diverse range of sessions and networking opportunities, making it a must-attend event for anyone interested in the seaweed industry.”

The conference brings together seaweed farmers, seaweed processors and distributors, equipment and technology providers, investment companies, academic and research as well as governmental institutions.

The organizers of Seagriculture EU 2023 have announced that, “Over 150 delegates have already registered for the conference, a remarkable achievement considering it is still six weeks away. Having such a significant number of delegates will increase the diversity of perspectives and expertise represented at the conference. This diversity will enrich discussions and debates, leading to a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.”
