Fishing UK 2012 Plans Unveiled

Sustainability +1 more

SCOTLAND, UK - A large number of exhibitors have already committed to attend the Fishing UK 2012 event in Glasgow in a new-look commercial fisheries exhibition that will cover every sector of the UK and international fish industry from sea to plate.

This will be the 25th anniversary of the popular and well-established Fishing UK series of shows and the new format is being carefully developed in close consultation with the fishing industry.

David Moir, Show Manager and former skipper, says Fishing UK 2012 will be an all-inclusive show for fishermen and their families that will include every element of the seafood industry, which will showcase the latest developments and innovation as well as being a great place to do business.

A major focus will be on ensuring that Fishing UK becomes a recognised meeting place for the Scottish, UK and European fishing industries and we have an advisory council of industry representatives to develop the show format, he said.

Amongst the exhibitors at Fishing UK 2012 will be Airmar Technology Corporation from the USA. The company is a leader in ultrasonic transducers and sensing technology and this will be the first time that they have been present at a fishing exhibition in Glasgow.

Other exhibitors include Anderson Marine, Commercial Oils, Seafield Navigation, Gilbert, Gilkes & Gordon, Seatronics, Finning UK, Craemar UK, Norsap UK, CC Jensen, Watermota and Echomaster.

There will be new boat displays and we are also looking to include seafood processors and logistics providers into Fishing UK 2012 to ensure every sector is represented from sea to plate, said David Moir.

The fishing industry has ownership of Fishing UK and influence over its content and this is why we are confident that it will prove a real success.

Fishing UK 2012 is organised by QD Events and will take place from 22 to 24 March 2012 at the SECC, Glasgow from 10am to 5pm Thursday & Friday, and 10am to 4pm Saturday. More details
