H.R.H Crown Prince Haakon to attend the opening of Aqua Nor 2017
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon will be present at the official opening of Aqua Nor 2017 in Trondheim on 15th August at 10:30.
The official opening will be done by Minister of Fisheries Mr. Per Sandberg. In addition, the Mayor of Trondheim, Ms. Rita Ottervik, and the Chairman of the Board of the Nor-Fishing Foundation, Ms. Liv Holmefjord, will also address the audience.
Support over time
This is far from the first time that the Royal family shows its support to the technology exhibitions Nor-Fishing and Aqua Nor. Ever since King Olav opened the very first fisheries exhibition in 1960, the Royal family has been present at these exhibitions quite frequently. In fact, 19 out of a total of 45 exhibitions have been opened in the presence of a member of the Norwegian Royal family. This is the fourth time that Crown Prince Haakon will attend the opening of the exhibition in Trondheim.
