China fisheries & Seafood Expo is one of the Asia’s largest fisheries and seafood shows. This year was the 10th time for ASMI to participate in the event.? It was the first show to be held in southern China.?
This show took place in Guangzhou on November 10-12, 2005.? The show boasted a record number of exhibiting companies from more than 35 countries.? It was also well attended by importers, wholesalers and distributors, as well as hotels and catering professionals.? Around 400 trade leads were collected, that broken our record of more than any other shows before, with over 12% having specific requests for product.
In order to have a better showcase of Alaska seafood during the show, let trades separate Alaska salmon displayed from whitefish and other Alaska seafood, ASMI’s booth featured the two display cases with a variety of species including all five species of salmon, three varieties of crab, sablefish, halibut, cod, and pollock which attracted a lot of interest throughout the three days of the show.? The booth was decorated with posters that contained vivid images of Alaska and; a widescreen TV that displayed video images of Alaska harvesting and processing.? Samples of smoked sockeye salmon, salmon roe and snow crab were distributed to over 10,000 visitors through two of our demonstrators. These samples were enhanced with the accompaniment of draft beer donated by the Alaskan Brewing Company, which was, of course, well heartily received by visitors.
