SRS Frigadon will be exhibiting at the prestigious DanFish International Fish Industry Exhibition in Aalborg, Denmark from the 7th to the 9th of October.
There has, since 1974 with 2-3 year intervals been fishing exhibitions at Aalborg. Aalborg is geographically the center for over half of the registered Danish fishermen. The fair has always been marketed as “The fishermen’s own Fair”. The fair is targeted both at the industry’s large as well as small providers, and focuses primarily on equipment for the fisherman, his boat and fishing gear. With the name change to DanFish International in 1996 the international aim was increased business and attendance and this development has continued ever since.
In 1993, there began an ongoing cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through embassies and consulates to encourage foreign visitors to the fair. This work was intensified in 1996, where it changed its name to the internationally more euphonious name “DanFish International” and around half a million Danish kroner were set at stake for these visits. It was a success, with participating delegations from 16 countries, totaling about 140 persons.
Since 2007, the invited buyers are identified in collaboration with the Danish Export Association and in 2011 the foreign delegations consisted of approx. 100 persons from 25 countries.
