Industry support strengthens for 2010 OSM Conference!
Mercator Media, organiser of the Offshore Mariculture Conference 2010, is pleased to announce that the leading industry associations will be supporting the 2010 Conference. The European Aquaculture Technology & Innovation Platform (EATiP), the Federation of European Aquaculture Producers (FEAP), the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) and HGK, Grupacija akvakulture, the aquaculture affiliation of the Croatian Chamber of Economy (and member of FEAP) have all pledged their support to the Conference that will be held from the 16-18 June 2010 at the Hilton Imperial Hotel, Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Courtney Hough, General Secretary, of FEAP and EATiP, commented: "Both EATiP (European Aquaculture Technology & Innovation Platform) and FEAP (Federation of European Aquaculture Producers) are pleased to support the Offshore Mariculture Conference since events such as these give fish farmers the opportunity to learn from both industrial and RTD experts about relevant technological advances, to receive informed updates on key research and policy issues and to be able to network with colleagues from across the sector." As well as promoting the event to their members and therefore raising awareness of the event and its prestigious speakers, it also means that members of any of the above associations will be entitled to a 10% discount off the delegate rate. European Aquaculture Society members will also be entitled to the discount as the EAS have continued their support from the previous event held in Alicante in 2008.
The full programme will be released shortly and sessions will include:
- Policy, legal framework and key research updates
- Practical offshore farming operation
- Spatial planning and monitoring
- Spotlight on Croatia
- Ecological monitoring and future technologies
- European and International case studies
The technical conference will be held on the 16 & 17 June with a visit to a fish farm on the 18 June. The Conference Networking Dinner will take place on the evening of Wednesday, 16 June 2010 at the fabulous Revelin Fortress which was built in 1462 to provide protection to the Eastern City Gate Place. Overlooking the Old City Harbour, the Revelin's terrace offers what are probably the best views of the Old City and its famous Harbour.
