    Global stars will shine and exciting new talents will emerge

    Every year in April, Bremen becomes a jazz metropolis, with the international jazz scene convening for the jazzahead! trade fair at MESSE BREMEN. This year, 2020, marks a double anniversary: it is the fifteenth anniversary of the world’s largest gathering of the jazz industry, while the accompanying festival – with its partner country programme and a CLUBNIGHT spread across a host of different venues in Bremen – has its tenth edition.

    The trade fair takes place from Thursday 23 April to Sunday 26 April. The festival starts earlier, on Friday 17 April.

    “jazzahead! has come on by leaps and bounds since it started,” says Sybille Kornitschky who runs jazzahead! for MESSE BREMEN. “It is now not just a major player in the jazz business, it has also proved that it can serve as a launchpad for artist’s careers. And it has become a magnet for audiences too. We were determined to do something special this year to mark our double anniversary – which is why we are so pleased that Canada is our partner country. For the first time, a jazz nation from across the ocean is in the limelight. Visitors will see jazz from Canada in all its diversity. And there is another remarkable feature too: a very substantial proportion of female artists and bandleaders.“

    The festival starts with a major highlight. The opening evening at Theater Bremen presents a double bill: singer-songwriter Laila Biali, recent winner of a Juno Award, will perform the first half. After the interval, Tanya Tagaq, who is one of the most high-profile representatives of the Inuit, will perform. Tagaq has developed her own competely individual and successful way of bringing the traditional throat-singing of this Canadian indigenous people closer to jazz.

    In the two weeks following the opening of the culture festival, further aspects of Canadian culture can be enjoyed, in addition to music. For example, Tanya Tagaq will do a reading from her first novel “Split Tooth“ (2018). The Museum Weserburg is exhibiting works by the artist Kapwani Kiwanga. Her sculptures of black marble and lamps, for example, are a reference to the New York “lantern law“ of 1713, according to which slaves were only allowed to be out at night-time either if they carried a lantern or were chaperoned.

    On the opening night of the trade fair, eight Canadian groups – some established, others up-and-coming – will perform for an audience consisting of industry people such as bookers, festival directors and programmers, representatives of labels and the public at the Canadian Night. The programme includes a range of very different artists: trombonist Audrey Ochoa and her band, the quartet of classically trained guitarist Itamar Erez and a joint project from pianist Marianne Trudel and drummer John Hollenbeck, “Dédé Java Espiritu“.

    Jazzahead! also facilitates “bilateral speed meetings“, where business proposals can be advanced. These meetings bring together industry specialists capable of opening doors for Canadian artists in Germany, or for German artists in Canada.

    Rufus Wainwright, an established and award-winning artist will be be giving the jazzahead! gala concert on the Friday evening of the trade fair at the Glocke concert hall in Bremen’s city centre. This concert will mark the German premiere of the material from his new album, which is currently in the process of being released worldwide.

    For the Saturday, the jazzahead! CLUBNIGHT will bring jazz to some 30 venues in Bremen. Canadian juries have selected numerous other bands to perform at this event. For example, there will be performances by the Josh Zubot String Quintet with the brothers Josh and Jesse Zubot and also CODE Quartet led by multi-award winning saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen, winner of two Canadian Juno Awards. Also there is the pianist and composer John Kameel Farah, who mixes for instance elements from Baroque music, Middle Eastern music and contemporary music with improvisation and electronics.

    Last year there were 3,408 registered participants from 64 nations attending the jazzahead! trade fair. The combined audience for the trade fair and the 100 weekend concerts was around 18,000 people.

    • Dear colleagues,
      from Sunday 9 to Friday 11 February 2020, the fish industry will come together in the MESSE BREMEN exhibition halls for the 17th fish international. The trade fair provides a great opportunity to discover interesting products and discuss current topics. Ahead of the event, we took a look around Hall 5 and put together a few suggestions for you – including some ideas for the gastronomy trade fair GASTRO IVENT taking place simultaneously in Halls 6 and 7.
      You are warmly invited to come along! If you need a break from the crowds or a quiet place to work, simply drop in to our Press Office in the Foyer of Hall 6. Here you can conduct interviews and talks, chat to colleagues, work, and enjoy light refreshments.
      Here is a selection of interesting trade fair topic.
    • Products and equipment

       Convenience is a hot topic at the fish trade fair. For example, Fisherman’s Choice shrimp cones or dim-sum shrimps for snacking (Stand in Hall 5: 5 E-49). Another example: Surimi specialist Vici recently won an award for its ready meal Surimi Noodles Wok Style (5 K-25).
       Reliable portions for the restaurant and catering industry: Zamek-Meinhardt (5 H-39) supplies, among other things, sturgeon fillets in various cuts. Open Blue Sea Farms (5 J-49) specialises in portioned cobia.
       Still largely unknown in Germany is the Japanese flounder (hirame), which is highly valued in Asia, especially for sushi. According to the fish farmer Kiliç it’s also very good grilled (5 F-19). Another fish practically new on the German market is the Black Sea salmon trout, presented by Kiliç as well as two other Turkish exhibitors: Laszom (5 H-56) and Gümüșdoǧa (5 C-39).
       From Christmas Markets onto supermarket shelves: The Finnish speciality loimulohi (which translates as „glowing/flaming salmon“) has also gained fans in this part of the world. Transgourmet presents not only flamed salmon but also flamed catfish (5 E-56). The necessary equipment is also available: Schich presents its flaming system for fish processing companies (5 B-58).
       Want to see attractive preparation of good products? Live cooking at the Deutsche See demonstration area shows how it’s done. The company also presents its first supermarket products: salmon and Graved salmon (5 J-19). Chefs in the Sea Fish Kitchen Studio cook and plate up products from Bremerhaven (5 G-35, F-35).
       When it comes to hi-tech machines, convenience is also an important topic: VEMAG presents solutions for making fish sausages and fish burger patties, or for applying toppings to fish fillets (5 A-43).
       NORD-machinery has developed a salt-dosing system, among other things (5 B-49). It includes a special feature for salmon processing, which ensures the belly is salted less than the more meaty back of the fish.

      Innovations in packaging

       A major topic at the trade show is packaging. It must comply with the new packaging regulations and be highly recyclable, but it also has to appeal to the trade and consumers. The expert Till Isensee will present two talks about how to balance these partly contradictory requirements. On the Sunday, he will address the retail trade (special area, Smoke House, 12 noon), and on the Tuesday he will focus on the fish industry (Smoke House, 11 a.m.). What’s more, at various times throughout the trade show he will slip into the role of „Dr Pack“ and evaluate packaging submitted by exhibitors or visitors (Foyer of Hall 5, Stand 5 B-01).
       Naturally, a large number of packaging manufacturers are represented at the fair – plus one company which aims to extend the lives of packaging. Danish company SePro repair (5 C-48), in Bremen for the first time, has developed a bonding method for repairing plastic boxes. They claim a success rate of 85 percent and emphasise that a repair is 70 percent cheaper than buying a new box.
       Soon to be completed is a project called MakPak. Conducted by Bremerhaven University, the Alfred-Wegener-Institute, the Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, and Nordsee GmbH, the project is dedicated to sustainable packaging solutions made from micro-algae for the food industry. The partners are working on an edible packaging made from algae, which does not taste of algae, discolour the contents or go soft. The design is being developed by Nordsee GmbH, which plans to test the packaging in its retail outlets (5 F-35).

      Focus on aquaculture

       Developments in aquaculture: Partners of the fish international invite guests to an event in the SCOPE Lounge on Monday. The Initiativkreis Tierschutz in der Aquakultur (Animal Protection in Aquaculture Initiative) draws up recommendations and above all examines methods of killing before slaughtering. Veramaris produces omega-3-rich algae oil which can substitute animal omega-3 fats in aquaculture. The company will discuss how this benefits the entire value-creation chain (Business Lounge above Hall 7/SCOPE Lounge).
       Together with 36 partners in Europe, South Africa and Brazil, the Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research is looking into new species for aquaculture. The goal of the AquaVitae project is to cultivate suitable low trophic species such as sea cucumbers and macro-algae. According to the researchers, they have a huge market potential combined with a much smaller ecological footprint than farming other species (e.g. lower CO2 emissions and lower release of nutrients into the environment). Furthermore, the aim is to cultivate these species together with fish or shrimps in so-called multi-trophic aquaculture systems.
       Installations in waterways and illegal glass-eel fishing are two of the main reasons for the decline in eel populations and therefore the threat of income losses in the fishery industry. The industry is fighting back with eel populating activities in rivers. Financing comes in part from schemes such as the „Eel Shares“ recently introduced in Schleswig-Holstein. Donors who sponsor the cause receive an attractively designed but non-profit-making symbolic share certificate. Representatives of the scheme will explain their concept in the Foyer of Hall 5.

      A few tips for the GASTRO IVENT

       The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) of Germany will present the German Cuptasting Championships on the Sunday of the GASTRO IVENT. Baristas must taste coffee from eight sets of three cups each and in each case identify the cup that differs from the other two. Then, on the Monday and Tuesday, coffee artists will compete for the best works of art in milk foam. The winner will get a place in the German Latte Art Championships (Hall 7, Coffee Style).
       At 2.30 p.m. on Sunday, 9 February, players from ice hockey club the Fishtown Pinguins will appear at the Bier-Harlos stand at the GASTRO IVENT. The Bremerhaven company is a longstanding partner of the ice hockey professionals. The players Christian Hilbrich, Tomas Sykora and Luca Gläser plan to show visitors that ice hockey players can be just as entertaining off the ice. During an autograph session, guests and fans will be able to take selfies with the players and also have their idols sign photos they create themselves in a photo booth (6 B-55).
       On an area of 850 square metres, the wholesaler Recker Feinkost and its suppliers will create info islands dedicated to themes such as Breakfast or High Convenience (6 C-50).
       Innovative drinking straws are presented by wisefood. Its edible straws are made from cereals, apple fibres and stevia, and are especially longlasting. According to the manufacturer, the straws remain stable and neutral-tasting in drinks for around one hour. When subsequently eaten, they taste sweet/sour (6 E-13).
       Customer loyalty: Instead of classic loyalty points or vouchers, Stampay offers a digital solution. It consists of a card to which points and vouchers can be saved. What’s more, credit can also be saved to the card so that it functions as a means of payment.

    Showcase applications for Bremen’s 2020 jazz trade fair reach new record level

    Thursday, 9 January 2020. The two main themes which emerge from the application round for the 40 showcase slots at jazzahead! 2020, which will run from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 April at MESSE BREMEN are: an impressive selection of large ensembles and for the very first time, a very substantial number of bands led by women. In the 40 short showcase concerts, the artists selected will be performing for an audience largely consisting of festival programmers, bookers and record label representatives. So the trade fair is not just an important platform for networking, it is also an event where bands are booked on the spot, and contracts are agreed.

    „jazzahead! has repeatedly proved that it can be the launchpad both for up-and-coming and for established artists from all over the world into the markets of Germany and Europe, and also for bands from our continent into the wider world,“ says Sybille Kornitschky who runs jazzahead! for MESSE BREMEN. This is the reason why there has been such a rush to apply for slots in the showcases. This year, the four international juries have had a heavier workload than ever: their task has been to listen to, rank and discuss a total of 816 applications from 50 countries (2019: 764). „jazzahead!, the world’s largest jazz trade fair has, in its 15 years of existence, become the most important gathering of the entire worldwide jazz industry,“ says Kornitschky.

    21 of 40 bands dominated by women

    Eight showcase slots are reserved for musicians from the 2020 partner country, Canada. A further eight ensembles will be be performing at the German Jazz Expo, another eight at the Overseas Night. And 16 bands will participate in the European Jazz Meeting. Of this entire complement of 40 groups, 21 are led an dominated by women. „This shows with absolute clarity that jazz music is no longer exclusively dominated by men,“ emphasizes Ulrich Beckerhoff, one of the two artistic directors of jazzahead! alongside Peter Schulze.

    At the European Jazz Meeting, women play an important role in no fewer than eleven out of the sixteen bands. Among these, Peter Schulze singles out the ten-piece ensemble led by pianist and composer Luzia von Wyl from Switzerland. „Among the others, I am also looking forward to hearing the charismatic voices of Torun Eriksen from Norway, Julia Biel from the UK and Macha Gharibian from France,“ he adds.

    In the other showcase sections, listeners can also expect a highly contrasted offering. Beckerhoff refers for example to the Canadian duo Silvervest. With their chamber music ethos, they create music of quite astonishing variety. And with the combination of pianist Marianne Trudel and drummer John Hollenbeck, Bremen audiences will be hearing two of the most important musicians from today’s international jazz scene.

    Among the German groups, Beckerhoff highlights bassist, composer and arranger Hendrika Entzian’s Big Band which received the WDR Jazz Prize. The pianist Johanna Summer impresses “as a soloist with great emotionality and immense ingenuity”.

    The Brazilian guitarist and singer Badi Assad, who can be heard at Overseas Night, has a worldwide following; her music always has tremendous vitality, instrumental virtuosity and emotional range, comments Beckerhoff. As a further example of the wide-ranging showcase programme, he mentions Nigerian trumpeter Etuk Ubong. Beckerhoff was impressed with Ubong’s way of embodying the tradition of African rhythms, a vital element in the emergence of jazz in America.

    Audio samples on www.jazzahead.de/en

    Links to all of the bands can be found in the showcase overview (see further press release). From the end of January, more details and audio samples from all the bands will be available on the jazzahead! website. For industry participants, attendance at the showcase concerts is included in the registration fee. For visitors, concert tickets and tickets for the other events at jazzahead! are available at www.jazzahead.de/en and at Nordwest-Ticket.

    Nils Fischer (bcl), Siegmar Brecher (bcl), David Koch (g), Julian Adam Pajzs (g), Samuel Huwyler (b-g), Dominik Mahnig (dr), Valentin Schuster (dr)

    „The true Harry Nulz“ merges „Edi Nulz“ and „The great Harry Hillman“. Both bands are very active working bands since many years. (…) The thrill of the line-up is resulting out of a doubling-effect: two bass clarinets, two guitars, two drum sets and an electric bass as the basis provide clever arrangements, unison-stereo effects and improvisational outbursts.

    Tilo Weber Quartet „Four Fauns”

    Tilo Weber (dr); Richard Koch (tpt), Claudio Puntin (cl), James Banner (db)

    Jazz standards are played backwards and preludes for fugue-like ballads are improvised. The quartet (…) thus presents contemporary jazz that is not avant-garde at the price of emotional coldness and does without clichés.

    Connie Han Trio (US)

    Jazziz Magazine claims, „Han has been labeled a rising star and rightfully so ­– she’s an intriguing artist with mastery over her instrument as well as a deft bandleader. Given the maturity and brilliance she demonstrates on ,CRIME ZONE‘, perhaps ‘rising’ could be dropped from that designation.”

    Drawing inspiration from the jazz greats, afrobeat, highlife and ekombi, he adds that the sounds of the elements water, wind and fire inspire him, which is why he calls his music ‘Earth Music’. His compositions reflect his heritage and life philosophy of goodwill, peace and love to humanity. “A fresh new voice in the international jazz scene” (London Jazz News)

    fish international with Japanese flounder, Black-Sea salmon trout, Sea Dogs & more

    Precisely portioned cobia from Panama, Japanese amberjack as a sushi topping, organic shrimps from Costa Rica: The products from Open Blue Sea Farms, Kagerer and Ristic are just three of the vast range of new products to be discovered at the fish international 2020. There will be a particular focus on high-quality convenience foods at the fish trade fair from Sunday 9 to Tuesday 11 February at MESSE BREMEN. Other top topics are frozen and smoked products. Furthermore, visitors from the food and fish retail industry, the hospitality industry and catering can find lots of interesting delicatessen plus of course fresh fish and seafood.

    Large number of new exhibitors

    „For example Lazsom will be exhibiting for the first time. The company reports an annual production of 16,000 tons, making it Turkey’s largest salmon trout and Black-Sea salmon trout farm“, says Project Manager Sabine Wedell. Black-Sea salmon trout is a lesser-known species in Germany. „The fish international is our first trade fair in Europe,“ says the Head of Exports, Musa Özer. He explains that the main markets so far have been Russia and Japan. „We’ve already sold some container loads to Germany and a few truckloads to Lithuania, but we want to make our top-quality produce much more widely known in Europe.“

    Also largely unknown in Germany is the Japanese flounder (hirame), which Kiliç is presenting for the first time in Bremen. The company, a leading Turkish sea bass and seabream producer, produces some 100 tons per year in a closed-circuit system. So far, it sells mainly to customers in the USA, says the Assistant General Manager Sinan Kiziltan. In Asia, hirame are valued especially for sushi, but Kiziltan says they are also very good grilled, with a taste reminiscent of sole.

    Other big names are also taking part in Bremen: The All-Fish-Handelsgesellschaft is the largest supplier of Cape hake on the German market, while P&G International Trading, Berlin claims to be Europe’s largest importer of zander. Regal Springs is a global operator whose tilapia fish farm was the first to receive Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification. The company pays special attention to sustainability – something it shares with Zamek-Meinhardt Seafood-Service of Minden. This company processes sturgeon from German fish farms. As Barbara Zamek-Meinhardt is keen to point out, this „avoids unnecessary long transportation and guarantees absolute traceability“. Customers can choose fillets, steaks, portions or whole fish.

    Ready-to-eat: high convenience

    Ready meals and convenience foods are booming. The Dutch shellfish producer Koninklijke

    Prins & Dingemans B.V. offers a range including various oysters and fresh as well as cooked shellfish. Lithuanian surimi specialist Vici recently received an award for its ready meal Surimi Noodles Wok Style. The company has developed innovations such as its seafood antipasti including shellfish with courgettes and water chestnuts. Polish company Seko devises ingenious recipes for herring: for example as a pizza topping. Fisherman’s Choice stands for easy-to-eat shrimp products such as shrimp balls and rolls or dim-sum-shrimps. Another Dutch company that will come to Bremen is Roem van Yerseke. Apart from shellfish, the company also supplies high-convenience lobster. Danish company Amanda Seafoods for example is known for its cod and plaice roe in tins, which it also recommends eating fried.

    Talking about tins: „In lots of big cities, tinned fish has become a trendy bar food,“ says Sabine Wedell. This is embodied at the fish international by Manger Trouvé, a company from Hanau. Its range has grown to around 100 different types, including spider crab meat, sea urchin roe and hand-boned anchovies from award-winning production.

    Tastings in the „Smoke house“

    A whole range of foods will be available to try not only at the exhibitors‘ stands, but also in the trade fair’s taster area – the „Smoke house“. On offer here will be tinned sardines, organic sea bass, caviar, and smoked specialities. Friesenkrone is presenting its „Sea Dogs“ for the first time. This is a herring dish inspired by the hot dog, but with only the bun served hot. „The wording and design are aimed at a younger target group“, says Head of Marketing Sylvia Ludwig. „We want to provide fish retailers with materials that will deliver extra sales at the counter.“

    The ticket is also valid for the GASTRO IVENT which is taking place simultaneously in Halls 6 and 7.

    Bremen Classic Motorshow: Two DTM heroes and a well-travelled swallow

    Where better to conduct a duel between automobile opponents than on a racetrack? Mercedes-Benz vs. BMW is one of a number of classic pairings in the Deutsche Tourenwagen-Meisterschaft (DTM). The championship is a favourite with spectators and regularly rekindles old rivalries between fans. Two of the dominant cars in the DTM were the evolution models Mercedes-Benz 190 E and BMW M3. „For lots of motor sports enthusiasts, these are the superheroes only rarely seen today. At the Bremen Classic Motorshow 2020, from Friday, 31 January to Sunday, 2 February, two of the original race cars will face off against each other once again,“ says Frank Ruge, Project Manager at Messe Bremen.

    Currently, 17 of the 150 members of the Klut-Blech-Szene club are busy building an appropriate arena for this meeting of rivals. The group has fitted out a temporary workshop in a former car dealership in Emsland. „We’re putting together a supersize Carrera track for the two racing cars, which will cover almost 100 square metres in Hall 4. That’s why we need a really big space,“ says Bernd Ramler. Ramler, the club’s Vice Chairman, was responsible until the mid-1990s for drive development in the racing segment, first at Mercedes-Benz, then at AMG. „While the series engines came with 230 hp, the racing cars in the 1992/93 season packed a punch of 370 hp. Depending on the track and rear axle, speeds of up to 300 kilometres per hour were possible – both for Mercedes-Benz and for BMW“, says the engineer.

    The models in the Young Generation sales mart in Hall 6 also impress with plenty of power under the bonnet. Ten in some cases high-performance cars from the 1980s and 1990s will be on sale there. In contrast, the Young Classics in the adjacent area are largely in original condition and have a low mileage on the clock. A leasing company from Essen is supporting the trade fair organisers with the design of the area. „We see a lot of potential in this format. First-time buyers today are looking for cars like the BMW M3, Audi RS2 or a rally Golf“, says Marcus Keller, Head of the Classic Cars Division. „In other words, models they idolised as kids and youngsters.“

    One owner who has loaned a vehicle to the two-wheeler special show reports that one thing was most important to him when he shopped for a scooter after passing his driving test in 2011: speed. „The advantage of the Simson models was that you could roar away from all the others at a top speed of 60 km/h. That’s what made me buy a 1976 matt-black Swallow“, says Martin Klein. Countless breakdowns fired the repair ambition of Martin Klein, who was then a schoolkid. Now his YouTube tutorials show his followers how to carry out their own repairs. The channel generates hundreds of thousands of clicks.

    Today, fans from all over the world write to him, which inspired him to travel to Vietnam on his Swallow. Klein took six months in 2019 for the trip on his 1986 KR 51/2. „In Georgia, we disassembled the Swallow and packed it in boxes on two hand trucks for transport on the Trans-Siberian Railway“, says the former Geography student. Together with members of the Hanoi Simson Club, he reassembled the scooter and later took it apart again for the return flight. His „Vietnam Swallow“ is one of more than 20 exhibits in Hall 1 that reflect 70 years of scooter culture in Germany.

    More rarities on two wheels are on show in the foyer of Hall 1. The special show „Collectors‘ Dream Racing Bikes from the 70s and 80s“ presents eight racing bikes. The exhibits include a 1986 Cinelli Laser and a 1987/88 titanium racer from Passoni. They come from the collection of the bike enthusiast Wolfgang Hagemann. „Each of the 300 Cinellis was hand made, so no two Lasers are the same.“ This is how Hagemann sums up the special attraction of the design icons from the 80s and the exclusivity of the show.

    The Bremen Classic Motorshow will take place from Friday, 31 January to Sunday, 2 February 2020 in all Halls of the Messe Bremen exhibition grounds as well as the mobile Hall 8. The halls are open from 9 am to 6 pm. The regular ticket price is EUR 16.

    LEBEN UND TOD ab Herbst 2020 auch in der Messe Freiburg

    Mit ihrer Mischung aus Fachkongress und begleitender Messe ist die LEBEN UND TOD bis heute deutschlandweit einzigartig. Dank ihrer lebensbejahenden Atmosphäre, ihrem vielseitigen Angebot für Fach- und Privatbesucher, prominenten Gästen und hochkarätigen Experten hat sich die Veranstaltung bundesweit Anerkennung erarbeitet. „Dieser Zuspruch hat uns dazu bewogen, nach zehn Jahren neue Wege zu gehen“, sagt Hans Peter Schneider, Geschäftsführer der Messe Bremen. Ab Oktober 2020 wird die Veranstaltung daher zusätzlich in Freiburg stattfinden. Das verkündete Schneider am Freitagmorgen, 10. Mai, gemeinsam mit Thomas Arabin, Abteilungsleiter Messe bei der Messe Freiburg, im Rahmen der Eröffnung der 10. LEBEN UND TOD.

    „Damit findet erstmals eine Eigenveranstaltung der Messe Bremen dauerhaft an einem zweiten Standort statt“, so Schneider weiter. „Ein Kongressprogramm, zwei Termine – damit können wir unser Einzugsgebiet deutlich vergrößern und Interessierten aus ganz Deutschland und den angrenzenden deutschsprachigen Nachbarländern Zugang zu den Veranstaltungsthemen bieten.“ Die Nachfrage ist groß, weiß Bereichsleiterin Andrea Rohde von der Messe Bremen: „Wir wurden immer wieder von anderen Messestandorten, Institutionen und Fachteilnehmern angesprochen. Gemeinsam mit der Messe Freiburg können wir nun auf die Bedarfe reagieren und diesen wichtigen Themen auch in Süddeutschland den nötigen Raum geben.“

    „Und das Konzept der LEBEN UND TOD passt zu Freiburg“, sagt Thomas Arabin. „Die Menschen hier haben eine sehr lebensbewusste Einstellung und ein großes Interesse an der Thematik. Zudem sind sich die beiden Standorte in ihrer Struktur und Größe sehr ähnlich. In diesem Kontext macht die Durchführung der Veranstaltung in Freiburg absolut Sinn.“

    Die nächste LEBEN UND TOD findet am Freitag und Samstag, 8. und 9. Mai 2020, in Bremen sowie am Freitag und Samstag, 23. und 24. Oktober 2020, erstmals in Freiburg statt.

    New approaches in sustainable aquaculture and animal welfare

    fish international 2020 with SCOPE Lounge as a space for current topics

    Trends and prospects in aquaculture have long been among the major topics at the fish international, and that also applies to the 17th fish trade fair from Sunday 9 to Tuesday 11 February 2020, at MESSE BREMEN. For example, SCOPE workshops will deal with sustainable farming and animal welfare standards. Apart from well-known key players in the industry, many first-time exhibitors have signed up, and various new projects will be launched.

    The SCOPE workshops on Sustainability, Chance, OPportunity and Enhancement premiered at the fish international 2018. This year, partners can directly invite customers to the SCOPE Lounge for discussions and networking.

    Animal welfare in the production process and sustainability in aquaculture and

    One organisation grasping this opportunity is the Initiativkreis Tierschutzstandards Aquakultur (Initiative on Animal Welfare Standards in Aquaculture) with around 30 members from fish farming, science, business, administration, food retailing and animal welfare. The group aims to define minimum animal welfare standards in aquaculture. This benefits product quality but is also a response to consumer pressure, says the project coordinator Stefan-Andreas Johnigk: „Pretty strict legal regulations apply in Germany, but that’s not the case in other countries. And there’s always a need for more research here as well.“

    The group has selected five aspects in the fish production process and is developing recommendations for them which are likely to carry a lot of weight: According to Johnigk, the group represents „two thirds of the domestic food retail trade, which buys not only in Germany.“ The first subject to be tackled by the group is the slaughtering of trout and carp: „In many places, stunning before slaughtering is not as clearly regulated as in Germany.“

    Sustainability is also a topic that the Dutch company Veramaris is tackling. The company produces an oil from algae which it claims is particularly rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. These are essential not only for humans, but also for fish. „Aquaculture is struggling with omega-3 shortages“, says Gaëlle Husser, Global Business Development Manager at Veramaris. „With our algae oil, we offer aquaculture businesses an additional omega-3 source and secure their uninterrupted supply.“ In Germany, Kaufland is the first retailer to have introduced „sustainably fed salmon“ onto its shelves. „We’re looking for more partners, and that’s what we want to use the SCOPE Lounge for.“

    New exhibitors and the first German project for farming giant groupers

    The exhibitors include not only large companies such as Aquacultur Fischtechnik and the filter specialist water-proved, but also for example two Dutch companies: VGE International, which specialises in disinfection with UV-C filters, and the feed manufacturer Alltech coppens. SEAWATER Cubes from Saarbrücken supplies a compact closed-cycle system for saltwater fish farming that fits into three converted standard shipping containers.

    Also now involved in the production of modular seawater systems is neomar, a member of the Sander Group. It is also working on a new project with the Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Bremerhaven. With federal government funding, the partners will start in June 2020 developing a pilot plant for tropical giant groupers. The species is unknown here, but elsewhere it is prized for its firm, white flesh and bone-free fillets. „The fish is also ideal for farming: It is fast-growing and extremely resistant to disease“, says the Managing Director of neomar, Dr. Bert Wecker. The partners also plan to use the system to breed saltwater plants they can market as seaweed to top restaurants.

    Award citation calls trade fair/festival “the must-go event for the jazz sector”

    jazzahead!’s innovative combination of an annual trade fair with a culture festival makes it unique in the world. On Thursday, 7 November 2019, it received the award as European Kulturmarke (cultural brand) of the Year 2019 at  the award ceremony at the Zollverein in Essen. The European Kulturmarke is one of the highest-profile cultural awards in Europe.

    We were already very pleased just to be shortlisted for the 14th European Kulturmarken Award, commented Messe Bremen’s Managing Director and the founder of jazzahead!, Hans Peter Schneider. But  actually to receive the award constitutes a massive validation of our work.” Sybille Kornitschky who manages jazzahead! says: This award is a remarkable tribute to jazzahead!, which 15 years ago took the bold decision to make jazz the central focus of a music fair for the first time, and since then has developed into a leading global cultural brand.Messe Bremen is now hoping to keep building jazzahead!’s profile further within the European cultural sphere, and also to put in place more international cooperations and partnerships.

    Alongside jazzahead!, the State Palaces and Gardens of Baden-Württemberg and the bauhaus 100 anniversary programme also had been nominated for the award. The Bremen event, among other things, impressed the jury with its innovative strength and willingness to take risks, according to the award citation. “That’s why people say ,Jazz we can‘, remarked Rolf Rische, head of the Culture/Living section of broadcaster Deutsche Welle DW, in his speech at the event. jazzahead!, he said, is the must-go event for the jazz industry and once a year turns Bremen into the jazz metropolis of the world.

    The 42 members of the jury from the culture, business and media worlds praised jazzahead! for the way it has managed and developed its cultural profile through consistent and sustainable brand management. Since 2006, the event has gathered together the international jazz scene in Bremen every year for four days in April. Initially it established itself as a trade fair and industry gathering for the national and international jazz scene, including 40 showcase concerts. A festival with a partner country programme and CLUBNIGHT were then added in 2011. The brand has also built a solid foundation and recognition in its region, its latest offspring being jazzahead! feat., which involves promoting concerts throughout the year.

    2020 will mark jazzahead!’s 15th anniversary, with the culture festival marking its tenth birthday. In recognition of this double anniversary, the event focuses for the first time on a partner country from overseas: Canada. The fair will take place from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 April, and the festival will begin on Friday, 17 April.

    The Kulturmarken Award was launched in 2006 by the Berlin-based cultural brands and sponsorship company Causales. For this year’s edition, the specialist jury received a total of 105 applications from Germany, France, the Netherlands, Croatia, Lithuania, Austria, the Czech Republic and Switzerland. Awards were made in a total of eight different categories.

    Gala with Rufus Wainwright; festival opening features Laila Biali and Tanya Tagaq

    In April 2020 Bremen’s jazzahead! trade fair will be 15 years old – and the annual festival which happens alongside it will have its tenth edition. This double anniversary is a cause for celebration: two Canadian singers, both with major international profiles, Laila Biali and Tanya Tagaq will give the opening concert of the culture festival on Friday, 17 April, at the Theater am Goetheplatz. Canadian artist Rufus Wainwright will perform at the jazzahead! gala concert at Bremen’s concert hall Die Glocke on Friday, 24 April.

    Laila Biali, an award-winning singer/songwriter and pianist, will be performing in Bremen. As recently as this spring she received a Juno Award for her latest album ‟Laila Biali”. The Junos are the Canadian equivalent of the US Grammys. The Washington Times has described the singer/pianist’s musical cosmos as “masterfully mix[ing] jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy.”

    In the second part of the concert evening, the singer will be Tanya Tagaq. She is one of the most important representatives of the Inuit, an original people of Canada, and is also one of Canada’s most original and celebrated artists. “She has practically rediscovered the long-lost throat-singing of the Inuit, and has developed her completely independent form of it, with wide-ranging influences from pop music, traditional singing, rap and beatboxing,” says Peter Schulze, one of the artistic directors of jazzahead! “She is a performer of tremendous urgency and intensity and always sings with full physical commitment.” Tanya Tagaq toured the world with Björk in 2001 and received the Polaris Music Prize for her album “Animism” in 2014.

    jazzahead!’s gala  concert has singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright as its star. Rufus Wainwright is highly esteemed and acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, and will be celebrating the German premiere of his new album, being released worldwide in 2020. Wainwright has released numerous pop albums, set sonnets by William Shakespeare to music for a play by playwright Robert Wilson, and has also completed two operas. The award-winning musician also contributed music to various blockbuster movies such as “Brokeback Mountain” and “Shrek”. Elton John once described Wainwright as “the greatest songwriter on the planet.”

    Since 2006, jazzahead!  has gathered the international jazz scene together annually at Messe Bremen for the trade fair and festival, and since 2011 has put a particular focus each year on a new partner country. Next year, the trade fair will take place from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 April. The Festival begins earlier, on Friday 17 April. In this year of anniversaries, Canada will become the first jazzahead! partner country from beyond the borders of Europe.

    Tickets for all jazzahead! and festival events are available at nordwest-ticket.de/ or online at www.jazzahead.de
