Organised by EAS and generously supported by AE2019 Gold Sponsor Biomar, Session Sponsor Sorgal, Industry Forum sponsor Rentenbank, as well as associate and media partners, AE2019 was held at the Estrel Hotel and Congress Center in Berlin, Germany.
AE2019 attracted a total participation of just over 2700 from an impressive 85 countries. Of the full conference delegates (more than 1400), 328 were students. The trade show presented products and services from 150 exhibitors. The abstract submission for AE2019 broke all EAS records, with 1039 abstracts received, resulting in 798 oral presentations (all sessions, including workshops and fora) and 443 poster presentations.
A new part of AE2019 was the use of Eposters – and 96 were presented in the sessions that were selected to pilot this presentation format. Also new in AE2019 was the Student Spotlight Award at the opening plenary session, as well as the AE2019 Innovation Forum and special sessions including “Women in Aquaculture.”
