This year, the traditional fishing exhibition Nor-Fishing will go digital for the first time in the exhibition’s history. The event is fast approaching, and exhibition manager Kari Steinsbø reports several hundred pre-registered visitors.
— To follow the event live, you must pre-register to receive login details. Attending the exhibition is completely free of charge for visitors, and now that the event is approaching, more and more visitors are signing up, Steinsbø says.
The event is broadcasted live over three days, from 18 to 20 August, and the broadcasts last for about five hours daily.
Interactive TV program
To those who are excited about how the digital event will be, Steinsbø states that following the event will be like watching a live TV program that you can participate in yourself; by asking questions to debaters or talking to exhibitors in digital meeting rooms.
— Each day of the event includes a good mix of features with lectures from leading researchers, debates and of course some highlights such as student features and celebration of the exhibition’s 60th anniversary.
The whole program is now updated on the Nor-Fishing web site, and will be updated continuously until the event opens.
— 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. We have worked hard for our viewers to experience an exciting event - and we are really looking forward to going live on Tuesday, Steinsbø adds.
All you need is internet access
Although it is strange and a little sad that the industry will not meet in Trondheim this year, the digital platform has several benefits.
Visitors avoid all expenses and logistics in connection with travelling to the event and can participate from anywhere in the world - as long as they have internet access.
— 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, Steinsbø says.
She encourages everyone with an interest in the fishing industry to register as a visitor and follow the event, which is described by exhibitors as a change of pace in the industry.
