IFMRS - International Food Marketing Research Symposium

2024 Conference

IFMRS 2024 will take place in beautiful Tromsø, Norway, on 18 - 20 June 2024.

The venue for the conference is the University of Tromsø. Tromsø is known for being one of the best places in the world to see the Northen Lights and the place where you can experience the culture of the Sámi people, however at this time of the year it is The Midnight Sun which makes this place unique.
Because of the Midnight Sun you don’t feel sleepy and can go experience the city or go on excursions in the middle of the night! You can sail out to see seals or the impressive Fjords, or you can go hiking and see moose, reindeer and puffins, all due to the golden rays of the midnight sun. There are many, many possibilities why we highly recommend you check out this special place where the sun never sets.
Tromsø is the most northern placed university in the world, and on top of that a certified sustainable travel destination. You can see more about what to experience in Tromsø in the summer at:

This year’s conference will be co-hosted by the School of Business and Economics at the University of Tromsø and Nofima.
