A conference for the future
Before the Seafood Exposition in Brussels the Norwegian Seafood Council have the pleasure of inviting to a peek into the crystal ball. One of those who will be leading in to the future is the award winning chef and trend-setter Claus Meyer.
Which global trends will mark the seafood industry in the future? Which markets will be the most important ones? How do Norwegian seafood exporters prepare themselves to meet the needs of tomorrow’s consumers?
Every year the Norwegian Seafood Council arrange their Master Conference prior to the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels. This year’s conference will have a futuristic perspective. Under the conference title «Seafood makes the world go around» different speakers will show us how global trends will affect producers, exporters and importers of Norwegian seafood.
– I believe this year’s conference will be both important and inspiring. Innovation and product development are keywords when we look in to the crystal ball, says project leader Mette Dalsbø Ottem in the Norwegian Seafood Council.
She is especially proud to present the chef behind the food-trend «The new Nordic cuisine» who will be the introductory speaker at the conference. Claus Meyer is also a known TV-chef and the man behind the restaurant Noma in Copenhagen which has been named the world’s best restaurant two years in a row and holds two Michelin stars.
Peter Estdahl plays
The Norwegian Seafood Council invites to this year’s Master Conference at Hotel Bloom in Brussels on Monday April 22th. The conference gathers the seafood industry, politicians and press for a professional input before the Seafood Exposition begins. In addition to speakers such as Claus Meyer, Peter Dill from Deutsche See and representatives from the Norwegian Seafood Council, the conference also offers a cultural experience of high quality. This year’s performer will be the up-and-coming Peter Estdahl, who recently launched his debut album in Norway.
An important meeting place
The yearly European Seafood Exposition in Brussels has in its 21 years developed to be one of the most important meeting places for the seafood industry in Europe. Last year the exposition gathered over 25 000 visitors and more than 1 500 exhibitors. Among these are also the Norwegian Seafood Council with a stand designed to tell the story of the origin for Norwegian seafood.
– This stand is both a place where we communicate important information regarding Norwegian seafood, but it also works as a common meeting ground for both exporters and importers. In this way we wish to be a resource for the Norwegian seafood industry as a whole, says Dalsbø Ottem.
This year’s expo will be on the 23rd to the 25th of April. For more information or to sign up for the conference, click here.
