Seagriculture USA 2023: Chances and changes in the seaweed industry


The second edition of Seagriculture USA will take place on 6-7 September in Portland, Maine on the US east coast.

A packed programme aims to celebrate innovation and enterprise in the growing seaweed sector, highlight the latest developments, nurture collaborations, and foster a sense of community within the industry.

As last year, the event is once again being supported by the State of Maine and its following state agencies; Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), Maine Technology Institute (MTI), Maine International Trade Center (MITC) and Maine Office of Tourism. With a spotlight on seaweed investments and scaling up the seaweed industry on one hand, and indigenous communities who will share their stories about working with seaweed on the other hand, this year’s event stands out for its innovative perspectives. The event’s accompanying trade show is a key highlight, offering companies within the seaweed industry an exceptional platform to showcase their innovative products and services to other industry professionals. The trade show will facilitate valuable networking and collaboration opportunities, allowing attendees to stay informed about the most recent developments in the field.

Enhancing the conference experience, Seagriculture USA 2023 places a strong emphasis on fostering direct exchanges between conference delegates. In addition to networking coffee and lunch breaks and the trade show, attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to participate in the Speed Networking, a Cocktail Reception and a networking event called “Networking by the Bay”.

Wade Merritt, President of Maine International Trade Center (MITC) and State Director of International Trade within the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development, expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming conference: “We are pleased to welcome global seaweed innovators and industry leaders to gather once again in Maine. Seagriculture USA2023 offers a diverse range of sessions and networking opportunities, making this a must-attend event for anyone looking to grow their business in the seaweed industry.”

Registration for Seagriculture USA 2023 is open, and more information can be found on the conference website
