Nor-Fishing, the summer’s big fishing fair in Trondheim, Norway has now been canceled after the Government’s ban on large events has been extended until 01 September.

“It is with great disappointment that the Nor-Fishing Foundation recognises that the Nor-Fishing 2020 fair cannot be carried out as planned during the period 18-21. August,” it is stated on the foundation’s websites.

Last Saturday, the Norwegian government decided to extend the ban on events that gather more than 500 people until September 1.

The fishing fair will not be postponed until 2021

It has been considered to postpone this year’s fair to May 2021. The feedback from the exhibitors shows that it is not relevant for a large number of the exhibitors. In addition, it will clash with many other trade fairs nationally and internationally. The Nor-Fishing Foundation has concluded that a postponement to May 2021 is not applicable.

Digital variant of the fair is considered

The Nor-Fishing Foundation is now looking at opportunities for a digital variant of Nor-Fishing 2020. It has already been decided that the student day will be conducted as a webinar. Maybe there are other parts of this year’s fair that we can carry out digitally. We will return with more information on this.

Hotel rooms are automatically canceled

Hotel rooms booked through G Travel are automatically canceled. So you don’t have to do anything about it. Nor will G Travel bill the cancellation fee as this is considered a force majeure situation.
