All Occasions Group to manage the World Fisheries Congress 2020

All Occasion Group CEO Anne-Marie Quinn

The win follows on from AOG previously winning the right to manage the International Astronautical Congress in September, the largest event to be held in Adelaide to date.

Adelaide was named host city for WFC2020 late last year, with the Congress to be led by Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) in partnership with AOG on behalf of the Australian Society for Fish Biology and the broader Australian and New Zealand seafood industry.

“We will be working alongside the WFC2020 Steering Committee to bring an expected 1500 national and international delegates to Adelaide to learn about and foster cooperation in fisheries science, conservation and management,” said Anne-Marie Quinn, AOG’s chief executive.

“In a win for the local industry, we anticipate that similar to the 2014 World Aquaculture Conference, delegates will also visit South Australia’s regional fisheries and aquaculture sites.”

Professor Gavin Begg, chair of WFC2020 and Research Chief Aquatic Sciences at the South Australian Research and Development Institute, a division of PIRSA, says he was sure the Congress will be a success.

“Anne-Marie demonstrated to us that All Occasions Group has the capabilities and experience in managing an international event and the committee looks forward to combining this experience with her local knowledge and expertise,” he said.
