This is where business gets done, says IceFish Events Director

This year’s Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is already set to show more than 40% growth compared to the 2014 event, according to organiser Mercator Media.

Events Director Marianne Rasmussen Coulling commented that there is no doubt that the exhibition, held every three years, is Iceland’s international showcase event.

‘This is where business gets done,’ she said, adding that investment in Iceland’s catching sector has triggered a surge in interest in the country’s fishing sector as a whole and boosted interest in next month’s Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition.

‘There are less than two months to go and the exhibition team are receiving daily enquiries with 90% of exhibition space already sold. We are really looking forward to this autumn’s event, which will boast so many new innovative features.’

IceFish has been a fixture of the industry calendar for more than 30 years and has been held every third year since 1984.

‘This year we have more than 500 companies and products being showcased. Direct attendance is up 41% from the 2014 exhibition with direct bookings from 18 different countries. This includes the Danish national stand doubling its space and Norway taking a 50% larger stand than at their last group attendance, as well as the Faroe Islands and the UK both with a larger presence,’ she said, and commented that this year’s IceFish also brings a number of first-time exhibitors from around the world. These include the Astilleros Armon and Cemre shipyards, netting producers Fibras Industriales and Siang May, and reduction gear manufacturer Reintjes.

‘The team and I are very excited about this year’s exhibition and can’t wait to open the doors and welcome all our international and Icelandic exhibitors and visitors,; Marianne Rasmussen Coulling said.

‘I’d also like to remind you that online visitor registration is now open. Register now, beat the queues, save over 20% and benefit from fast-track entry and badge pick-up upon your arrival at the exhibition.’
