Aquaculture UK was rescheduled from May 2021 to May 2022. The show, which was due to take place from May 19-21, will be deferred to May 3-5, 2022 at the Macdonald Resort in Aviemore, Scotland.
The decision follows the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic and comes after close monitoring of information from the government, as well as consultation with the aquaculture community.
Event director Cheri Arvonio said that “although all the signs are positive for a restart of events from Easter, we feel running Aquaculture UK in May is too early. We want to give everyone the best possible chance for a great show, so it is important we have a clear run into the event. We want to make the right decision for our community and having consulted with our exhibitors, visitors and partners, we’ve decided the best action to serve everyone is to postpone the show to its regular home in the show calendar year.”
“We’re disappointed not to be able to bring everyone together as soon as we’d hoped. But we’re committed to delivering an event in 2022 that provides the community with the most effective opportunities for networking, education, and interaction – and we’re confident that the move to next May means we’ll be able to return with the best show possible,” Arvonio said.
The organization will launch a virtual sustainability seminar in the coming weeks to provide a platform for the industry to connect. “We’re also excited to announce that Aquaculture UK will be launching a newsletter in the next few months. Aquabuzz, the bi-weekly newsletter will give the aquaculture community an excellent opportunity to share news, communicate about products and services, and stay connected at a vital time for our industry.
