The Advisory Board support Icefish 2021

The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition Advisory Board met in Reykjavik last Thursday to discuss the preparations and plans for this September's show.

Full support was pledged from board for the best possible Icefish Exhibition in September. The Advisory Board composed of representatives from:

  • The Icelandic Ministry of Industry and Innovation
  • Marel
  • Sæplast
  • Samhentir Kassagerð
  • Kópavogur Town Council
  • Valka
  • Íslyft
  • Hampiðjan ísland
  • Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition and PR Team

It was agreed that it is time to set the wheels back in motion after almost a year and a half of restrictions and isolation because of the pandemic, with plans continuing for Icefish to go ahead as scheduled this September.

Omar Már Jónsson the new Icelandic Sales Manager comments: "I am looking forward to the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition returning to Fífan Halls, in Kópavogur, in September.  It will be amongst the very first exhibitions held in Iceland since the world started to fight the pandemic and it is time to come together and renew or strengthen old business associations and friendships.

We can see from the increase in bookings for the past few weeks that companies are ready to return to the market and there is no way better than an event like Icefish where people meet and discuss business and make new deals.

One of my goals is to build up even better service for our Icelandic exhibitors, in particular to those who needs that little bit more help to prepare in order to help them to get the most out of the exhibition"

See you there! - Icefish will be the perfect platform to show the world the strength and innovation of the fishing industry, providing a place for customers, colleagues, competitors, old friends and new, to meet again and celebrate the fact that this vigorous sector has persevered a challenging period with flying colours.

The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition will take place 15-17 September 2021 and is a must attend event for anyone wanting to be updated on the latest technology, equipment and developments in the commercial fishing industry. For further information contact Diane Lillo, International Sales Manager on 0044 1329 825 335.

We look forward to seeing you there!
