This Year’s Humber Seafood Summit is Truly Unmissable

29 August 2013

UK - For the first time, this year’s Humber Seafood Summit, taking place from 18-19 September, will have its own Twitter feed - making the event easily accessible for those unable to attend and encouraging lively, interactive debate throughout the event.

People will be able to stay tuned to all the presentations and participate in industry discussions by following @Seafoodsummit and using #seafoodsummit2013.

As well as tweeting information from key speeches, Seafish will invite industry to comment on presentations they’ve enjoyed at the event. For those not in attendance, pictures will be uploaded regularly as well as video content, which will be provided by Panopticon Films.

Paul Williams, CEO Seafish said: “The Humber Seafood Summit is an important event for industry and although we have a high number of attendees, we know not everyone who would like to, can always make it. We are very excited about keeping our wider audience up-to-date on summit news through Twitter. For anyone with an interest in this year’s event and the future of the fishing industry I would recommend following @Seafoodsummit and so they can watch the action unfold on line and join the discussion. “

The Humber Seafood Summit will take place at the Royal Hotel in Grimsby from 18-19 September. This international event will bring together a panel of respected industry speakers and delegates from across Europe to debate key issues around the central theme of Reputation and Integrity.

This two day summit, which is organised and co-ordinated by Seafish in association with organisations across the UK, will launch on Wednesday evening with an Information Forum, followed by a screening of Seafish’s film, ‘The Business of Fishing’.

Thursday’s sessions will include speakers presenting on a range of subjects including seafood sustainability in a global context, industry integrity, reputation, genetic identification, labelling accuracy, transparency and implications for seafood, future opportunities and challenges. The range of subjects has been carefully selected to reflect industry issues bringing productive and meaningful discussion to the summit.

Registration for the event is already open more delegates are signing up to attend every day. To register your place at the conference, please email:
