From Aug 23rd to Sept 28th, 2012, several trade gatherings were held by ASMI China in Shanghai, Chengdu, Shenyang, Beijing, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Ningbo, and Shenzhen. For each gathering, about 25 key traders including importers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers of Alaska Seafood products were invited. The gathering consisted of two parts: panel discussion and lunch/dinner reception. At the panel discussion, the current seafood market was discussed. ASMI China is expected to learn more about each company’s business and their expectation for ASMI China. Alaska seafood were served at the receptions, including Alaska Pacific cod, black cod, Pollock roe, sockeye salmon, snow crab legs, yellowfin sole, etc. This series of trade gatherings provided an ideal platform for ASMI to enhance the relationship with traders and develop new clients and set a sound base for promoting Alaska Seafood.
