Since its inception in 1984, the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition has become one of the world’s leading fishing events. Held only once every three years, the 2011 event covered over 13,000 m2 of inside and outside exhibition space. Nearly 500 companies showcased the latest developments in the commercial fishing industry; from the design and construction of vessels, through locating and catching, processing and packaging to marketing and distribution of the final product. In addition a number of countries also had National Pavilions.
The 2014 show will be the 11th in the series and the previous event held in 2011, saw an encouraging air of optimism as many exhibitors secured large orders and, not only was attendance up on the 2008 event by 9% to 13,547, but the number of countries from which attendees came, also increased to 52.
The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 2014 will be much more than just an exhibition and plans for a conference, the 6th Icelandic Fisheries Awards, inward delegations and plant visits are well underway.
The Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is a must attend event for anyone wanting to be updated on the latest technology, equipment and developments in the commercial fishing industry. More information on the Icelandic fishing industry is available here.
