Zooming in for awards shortlist
SEPTEMBER is going to be a busy month in the aquaculture calendar, with the big Aquaculture UK exhibition, based in Aviemore, switched from May to September 15-17, and the EAS’s Aquaculture Europe 2020 conference long booked for Cork from September 29 to October 1.
The Aquaculture Awards are due to go ahead in September, too, with a special presentation dinner during the Aviemore show.
Event organiser 5m Publishing said the panel of judges managed to meet on Zoom to draw up a shortlist, which it plans to release on April 15.
The winners will then be announced at the awards dinner taking place on Wednesday, September 16, during the Aquaculture UK event.
Susan Tinch of 5m said: ‘We had a record number of entries from all over the world and across a number of sectors.
‘The quality of the entries was excellent and highlight the energy, enthusiasm and innovation happening in the aquaculture industry.’
The decision to postpone the exhibition from its original slot in May was made last month by 5m Publishing and Diversified Communications UK, which has recently bought the event.
