News this week: Space sold at Diversified Communications’ 5th edition of Seafood Expo Asia grew by more than 10% this year with over 200 exhibitors showcasing their products and services from the fish and aquaculture industry. The three-day show ran from 2nd to 4th September 2014 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) and the event attracted more than 8,600 visitors from 66 countries and regions.

According to Diversified, 18 group pavilions were hosted including those from Argentina, Australia, Greece, Italy, France, Britain, the Maldives, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada and the U.S. Product highlights included Scottish salmon, abalone from Australia and razor clams from Ireland, while key industry trends focused on sustainability and ocean-friendly initiatives.

Ms Terri Tsang, show director at Diversified Communications, said, “In Asia, green shoppers are still on a learning curve although sustainability considerations are definitely starting to impact and influence purchasing decisions. Consumers are continuing to show an increasing appetite for premium products from quality suppliers and Seafood Expo Asia is reacting to that demand.”
