“Atlantic Fair – International Maritime Exhibition” is staged every other year. The expo in May 2022 was a resounding success with 195 exhibitors from 20 countries and an attendance of 4,500 over the three days of the event.

The expo is aimed at showcasing maritime goods and services and to highlight contemporary developments in that field.



The societies in the North Atlantic depend on the sea and its natural resources.

Over the past two decades, the Faroe Islands have experienced significant growth. Since the beginning of this millennium, the population has increased from approximately 45,000 to over 54,000 residents. Remarkably, 90% of the population is now connected by a network of bridges and tunnels, paving the way for new opportunities.

In recent years, several modern fishing vessels have been added to the maritime fleet, and the island’s modern industry plays a central role in the global drive towards internationalization.

Fish farming has nearly tripled in tonnage since the year 2000 and now accounts for approximately half of the total fish export value.

The transition to renewable energy is progressing rapidly and now includes wind turbines and harnessing ocean currents, in addition to hydropower.

Throughout this transformative period, Atlantic Fair has evolved into a prominent international exhibition. In 2022, it attracted participants from 20 countries with an impressive attendance of 4,500 visitors and an exhibition featuring 195 exhibitors, highlighting its significance.

We welcome you to three exciting days at Atlantic Fair 2024!

At the previous fair more than 4000 visitors from 20 countries visited Atlantic Fair in Klaksvík, the industrious fishing capital of the North Atlantic. As prime minister of the Faroes Islands, I am honored to welcome you once again.

Few nations in the world are as closely tied to the sea as the Faroes Islands. It goes without saying that the exploitation of our natural resources has been the foundation of the Faroese economy and welfare for generations. As country we strive to ensure that these resources are utilized in a sustainable way with responsible and effective fisheries.

Atlantic Fair is living proof that innovation and adaptability go hand in hand. I am confident that the fair will once again showcase the very best of maritime-related businesses in the North Atlantic region and worldwide.

Aksel V. Johannesen
Prime Minister of the Faroe Islands

Welcome to Klaksvík

The fishing industry has historically been the bedrock of Faroese society. Therefore, the country’s financial state is, to a certain extent, a mirror of the state of the fish stock around the Faroe Islands.

As the fishery capital of the Faroe Islands, it is important to the local area that the fishing industry has secure and stable conditions to work with.

Consequently, the importance of sustainable fisheries is something that all in the industry occupy themselves with, even though there might be differences in opinions concerning best practices for working towards sustainability. However, the fishing industry in the Faroe Islands is recognised for continuing to develop new sustainable solutions, which can contribute to securing the industry in the future. An example is the new ships arriving in the Faroese ship fleet this year, which significantly contribute towards greater sustainability.

Atlantic Fair is a platform supporting this agenda, an international trade show hosted in our little town of Klaksvík for networking for companies worldwide.

During these three days, companies will strengthen their current business network, make new business deals, and get inspired to find complicated solutions in new innovative ways that cross borders. Such cooperation can be time-consuming and costly but is a decisive part of making progress toward sustainability.

Possibilities for travel between countries are accessible now more than ever. I believe that it is essential for Faroese companies to have the possibility to showcase their products in their own environment and provide the hospitality the Faroese are known for.

Atlantic Fair provides an excellent opportunity for local businesses to strengthen their business relations in their local settings, strengthening the foundation for future cooperation.

As Mayor of Klaksvík, I am pleased that our town gets the honour to host the Atlantic Fair 2024, a business trade show with great value for the town. This event receives thousands of visitors, and I hope all trade show attendees will have a great experience and explore the town’s shopping and cultural opportunities.

On behalf of the town’s council, I want to welcome you to the Atlantic Fair 2024.

Kind regards

Karl H. Johansen
