IntraFish, The Economist renew partnership on World Ocean Summit

Event will once again bring business leaders, government and academics together to find solutions for developing the blue economy.

IntraFish Media has again joined forces with The Economist magazine to support the third World Ocean Summit, to be held June 3-5 in Cascais, Portugal.

"We’re excited to partner again with The Economist, the world's leading global business and politics publication, in support of our shared mission to tap into the blue economy and maximize the sustainable growth of businesses operating in our oceans, including the aquaculture, fisheries and seafood processing sector,” said Pål Korneliussen, publisher of IntraFish Media.

The summit, hosted in association with National Geographic, will convene hundreds of global leaders from business, government, think tanks and academia over two days of presentations, interactive panels and networking sessions.

Last year’s ground-breaking event attracted over 200 attendees, and brought together a range of stakeholders to discuss solutions to the challenges for developing the ocean economy, including the fisheries and aquaculture sector.

As a supporting partner, IntraFish Media will provide exclusive coverage of the event to subscribers of its publications and facilitate the participation of the seafood sector in the event, including discounted access. Click here for more details.

Last year, IntraFish Media journalists brought readers real-time coverage of the event in a dedicated blog carried on IntraFish.com, and interactive social media updates via the @intrafish Twitter feed.

“Our partnership with The Economist on last year’s World Ocean Summit raised awareness of the seafood industry’s critical role in developing the blue economy, and the importance the aquaculture sector in particular will play in addressing the world’s future food demand,” Korneliussen said.

“We’re looking forward to once again lend our in-depth knowledge of the sector to the event, and bring seafood industry leaders to the table to shape the critical conversation over the future of the ocean economy.”

In addition to the World Ocean Summit, The Economist has also launched the first-ever Ocean Innovation Challenge, and is inviting businesses from around the globe to enter their concepts for a chance to win access to the summit and attract attention of the investment community.

In addition, IntraFish produces Norwegian publications IntraFish.no and FiskeribladetFiskaren.
