ITECHMER 2021, the international trade fair for the fishing industry, invites the professionals to build the future of the marine industry.

As an economic and institutional meeting place, ITECHMER offers business opportunities and exchanges that encourage discussions on the sector’s issues. The organization of events related to the exhibition is again implemented for this 2021 edition by the agency Sea to sea and a committee of experts from the industry.

The three days of the show will be punctuated by conferences and professional meetings focusing on various topics aiming to raise awareness and mobilize stakeholders on the future of the sector, around the thread “Let’s build the future of the sea sector”.

Wednesday 6 October, the first day will focus on “The sea, an ocean of values”.
Marketing of unknown species, processing of by-products, creation of eco-labels, development of marine biotechnologies and consumer awareness are ways to develop the sector.

The day of Thursday 7 October will highlight “an industry in transition”.

Faced with the challenge of climate change and the protection of marine biodiversity, professionals and industrialists in the marine sector are innovating to improve the energy efficiency of vessels and facilities, reduce waste, and develop more selective gear that has less impact on the environment.

The last day of the event, which is more widely attended by fishermen, on Friday 8 October, will be focused on “the future of French and European fisheries”.
After the Covid-19 crisis and the UK’s exit from the European Community, the industry is closing ranks and reinventing itself.

Details of the agenda will be available soon
