AquaME 2017

Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Dubai UAE

AquaME is the Middle East’s largest and leading trade exhibition dedicated to the aquaculture industry. Running annually alongside AgraME, the region’s largest and leading agriculture trade exhibition, the event provides exhibitors the opportunity to showcase their products and services to thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Over the years, AquaME has been the focal point for companies interested in tapping business opportunities presented by growth in the aquaculture industry in the wider MENA region. Says organisers:

  • AquaME is the only regional event for aquaculture manufacturers to gain access to the Middle East market
  • The GCC is a quickly developing market with a high demand for farmed seafood
  • Take advantage of the 136,450 ton deficit in supply / demand in the region
  • The GCC Aquaculture industry is still in its infancy meaning less competition and more opportunities for suppliers and manufacturers.

Sustainable development in Scotland’s seas: securing progress in uncertain times

RSS Discovery, Dundee

The MASTS Marine Planning and Governance Forum is supporting and co-organising the 2nd Sea Scotland Event with ScotLINK and other partners on 21 June 2017.

This year’s event will focus on the critical topic of the impact of the EU Referendum and constitutional uncertainty on marine policy, and the progress towards sustainable development of Scotland’s seas.

Recognising the prevailing uncertainty, but the need for discussion on impacts, concerns and the opportunities that may be presented, SS17 will provide a platform for dialogue, with a focus on other useful frameworks including OSPAR, ICES and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Representatives from a wide range of marine sectors, local and national authorities, NGOs, scientists and others are welcomed to share perspectives and build ideas for action, helping inform a progressive approach to sustainable development as Scotland’s relationship with the EU is negotiated.

Tickets cost £40 – £65 and registration is now open via Eventbrite. Alternatively, for more details on the event, contact Emilie@scotlink.org or lucy.greenhill@sams.ac.uk.
