Seagriculture 2024 set to ‘bridge continents’


The Seagriculture EU 2024 conference, the leading conference for the seaweed industry, will be taking place in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands from 18 – 20 June 2024. Under the theme, Bridging Continents, Seagriculture EU 2024 aims to transcend geographical boundaries to unite stakeholders from diverse corners of the world.

The journey begins on 18 June with an exclusive site visit to Ocean Rainforest, offering attendees a first-hand glimpse into their operations with expert guides by their side. They will get an up-close look at their production and hatchery and enjoy the view of the cultivation sites of Ocean Rainforest from land. Moreover, attendees will have the chance to embark on a breathtaking boat journey to explore the cultivation site more closely and witness seaweed harvest in operation.

“We are excited to welcome all seaweed enthusiasts to the Faroe Islands and show them our work during the site visit of Seagriculture EU 2024. It is a unique opportunity for industry professionals to see our operations,” said Ólavur Gregersen, CEO of the Exclusive Event Sponsor Ocean Rainforest. “If you are working with seaweeds, Seagriculture EU 2024 is an event that you should not miss. Boasting a comprehensive conference agenda and prime networking opportunities, it’s an essential gathering for professionals in the field.”

From 19 to 20 June, the conference program unfolds with five plenary sessions, two panel discussions, and the newly introduced Seaweed Elevator Pitches, offering attendees an extensive overview of industry advancements and prospects. This year, the program includes a very international line-up of speakers who will share their expertise, providing attendees with unparalleled learning opportunities. Additionally, researchers will have the opportunity to present their posters, fostering dialogue among conference delegates.

The line-up of speakers for the conference includes Charlina Vitcheva, Director-General of DG MARE, and Vincent Doumeizel, Senior Advisor Ocean at the United Nations Global Compact.

The organisers have also announced representatives from industry leaders such as FermentationExperts, Unilever, Cargill, and Future Feed. Kicking off the event will be Høgni Hoydal, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Foreign Affairs, Industry, and Trade of the Faroe Islands.

Complementing the conference program is a dynamic trade show, providing a platform for companies within the seaweed industry to showcase their offerings and foster collaboration. Networking events, such as the conference dinner, offer further opportunities for engagement and camaraderie among attendees.

As part of continuous improvement efforts, Seagriculture EU 2024 has introduced the conference application B2Match, offering participants an efficient way to communicate, schedule meetings, and stay updated on the latest news, ensuring a seamless and engaging conference experience.

More than 190 delegates have already registered for the conference.
