NOR-FISHING 2020 CANCELLED
Nor-Fishing 2020 cancelled – Nor-Fishing 2020 due to be held in Trondheim on 18-21 August has been cancelled due to coronavirus.
A statement from the organiser said: “It is with a heavy heart that the Nor-Fishing Foundation recognizes that the Nor-Fishing 2020 exhibition cannot be held as planned during the period 18-21 August. Last Saturday April 25th, the Norwegian Government decided to extend the ban on events that gather more than 500 people from June 15 to August 31.
“It has been considered to postpone this year’s exhibition till May 2021. The feedback from the exhibitors shows that it is not relevant for a large number of the exhibitors. In addition, it will clash with many other trade fairs nationally and internationally. The Foundation has consequently concluded that a postponement to May 2021 is not a viable option.
“The Nor-Fishing Foundation is now looking at the possibility of organising a digital version of Nor-Fishing 2020. It has already been decided that the Student Day will be conducted as a webinar. There may be other parts of this year’s exhibition that we can carry out digitally. We will return with more information on this.
“If you have booked hotel rooms through G Travel, these rooms will be automatically cancelled. You will therefore not have to do anything about it. G Travel will not charge any costs as this is considered a force majeure situation.”
