After the massive success of last year's Seattle event, the Bergen summit will, once again, bring some of the industry's most prominent and promising female executives together to discuss the burning issue of how to make the seafood industry's leadership more diverse.

"We are very happy to support this event because we believe that every business potential should receive the best possible support on an equal basis," Deutsche See said of the sponsorship.

IntraFish first launched the Women in Seafood initiative with a series of interviews with key female leaders in 2015 to a resounding response to push the issue further up the industry's agenda.

In response, IntraFish held the first Women in Seafood Leadership Summit in Seattle last year.

The event was an overwhelming success, with charismatic speakers from Whole Foods, Trident, Icicle Seafoods, Love the Wild, Seafish, ASMI and Regal Springs making for a high-energy evening inspiring change and renewed drive in the industry.

This year's event promises to be just as inspiring, with speakers from Trident, Grieg Seafood, Regal Springs Europe and Kefalonia Fisheries topping the line-up.

A full schedule of the evening will be released soon.
