This year Norwegian Seafood Council (NSC) will sport its biggest stand ever at ThaiFex from 28 May to 1 June 2019. ThaiFex 2019 takes place at IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center, close to Muang Thong Thani and is the largest fair of its kind in Thailand. Norwegian Seafood Council’s stand is located in the seafood section of the “World of Food Asia” at IMPACT Challenger.
The fair attracts industry actors from all over the region and is a great venue for meeting existing clients or establishing new business relationships. The feedback from the Norwegian exporters that participated last year was very positive and the fair had a very high level of activity. This year’s Norwegian seafood stand will be completely generic and build on Norwegian origin. Participating companies will get their names and logos visible on the stand, and they will have the opportunity to share their own marketing material such as brochures. However, there will be no opportunity to exhibit own products or to distribute tastings. Norwegian exporters are welcome to use the facilities on the stand and also use it as a meeting place. NSC will also display current seafood products. New this year is a kitchen section as part of the booth to create attention through cooking demos and tastings. This will benefit the participating exporters. For more info about the fair see www.worldoffoodasia.com. Here, the participating companies must register themselves as visitors to access the fair. The registration is free.
On Monday, 27 May at 18.30 hrs, the Norwegian Seafood Council will hold a combined Norwegian mini seminar and seafood dinner at the Westin Hotel in Bangkok. Here leading players from the value chain in Thailand will also be invited. According to the Norwegian and Thai players who participated last year, this was a useful and successful event for the acquisition of market knowledge and networking, and a good introduction to the trade fair itself. The trade fair, seminar and dinner are free for Norwegian exporters.
