Major increase in number of visitors to Nor-Fishing

Our thanks to all exhibitors, visitors, delegates and organizations for having contributed to four fantastic days at the exhibition, with good meetings, discussions, seminars and product presentations!

The bare facts leave no doubt that the professional programme at the exhibition is relevant and interesting. The number of visitors increased by more than 22% compared to the last Nor-Fishing in 2014. More visitors mean that the industry’s most important meeting place gives more opportunities for those who participate.

Number of visitors 2016: 17 460
Tuesday: 3881
Wednesday: 5667
Thursday: 5335
Friday: 2577

Not only the number of visitors increased this time. The visitors also come from more different nations than before. This year, technology interested people from 56 countries took the journey to Trondheim. That represents a 27% increase compared to 2014.

550 exhibitors in 2016

The «stars of the show» – the exhibitors – are also more numerous than earlier. The increase was 25% compared to the last Nor-Fishing, but it could have been even more if we had had more area to offer. The waiting list for exhibition space for Nor-Fishing 2016 was long, and was established already in February 2016. Fortunately, a large new hall will be in place in time for Nor-Fishing 2018.

Did you notice?

On the first day of the exhibition it was announced that Scantrol Deep Vision won the Innovation Award for 2016. The other two finalists were the Institute of Marine Research and Selfa Arctic. Minister of Fisheries Per Sandberg did the official opening just before the Award was presented. The Best Stand Award went to Wärtsilä, while Møre & Romsdal County and Fiskeriportalen were the runners-up.  The Directorte of Fisheries Environment Award went to Nordic Wildfish. And on the last day of the exhibition, the students were welcomed to a special Student Day.

Welcome back in 2018
«We wish all participants welcome back and thank all of you for having contributed to filling the days with exciting technology, fantastic displays and unstoppable good humour,» says Project Manager Kari Steinsbø of the Nor-Fishing Foundation.
