Pitch Sessions

Pitches are short interventions (10-15 minutes) to present projects, organizations, businesses, technologies or new products within the marine scope.

Audio-visual support materials, such as slides or videos, are accepted.

Participation is free of charge and requires pre-registration. As the agenda is limited, inscription order will be considered.


Seafood tasting

BUSINESS2SEA attendees will have the chance to enjoy seafood tasting moments courtesy of Docapesca and ANFACO.

Besides boosting interaction among participants, it is an excellent opportunity to promote Portuguese and Galician products and demonstrate their versatility within innovative and flavourful recipes.

Furthermore, B2Sea offers a cocktail dinatoire at Leixões Cruise Terminal, courtesy of APDL – Port Administration of Douro, Viana do Castelo and Leixões (to be confirmed).
