Start-Up Showcase

Present your technology on stage to a panel of industry experts as part of the Start-Up Showcase. This fast-paced session gives early and mid-stage companies 7 minutes to explain their solution, followed by a Q&​​​A with investors.

The summit will also shine a spotlight on the most ground-breaking aquaculture projects from around the globe.

Key Technologies: Sustainable Aquafeed; Algae Commercialisation; Farm Optimisation; Disease Prevention; Restorative Aquaculture; Supply Chain Traceability; Automation & Robotics; Circular Systems

Start-Up Exhibition

Start-ups get the opportunity to have a dedicated, branded presence in the exhibition & networking area for the duration of the event, highly visible and ideal for meetings.

Generate new connections among the aquaculture, technology and investment community, and be positioned as a key innovator in the move towards a sustainable blue economy.

You’ll also have a virtual booth on the summit platform to connect with virtual attendees and showcase your start-up’s potential before, during and for four weeks after the live summit.
