Alliance Conference

Alliance Conference Location: J.W. Marriott Cancun Resort
AC 2024: Where connection grows and collaboration sparks

October 15-18, 2024

The 2024 Alliance Conference convenes attendees from leading NGOs, businesses, foundations, and academia united in the belief that if we work together, responsible seafood production and trade can protect our ocean and the people who depend on it.

The Annual Conference is an invaluable opportunity to learn about emerging trends in the responsible seafood movement, bring visibility to your environmental and social responsibility efforts, and forge strategic partnerships with old and new colleagues.
