Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show moves online
A major Taiwan fisheries and seafood show, which has added recreational fishing to its line-up in recent years, has been postponed until December and will take place as an online event.
The Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show (TIFFS), which was due to take place in September, has now been rescheduled to be held from December 2nd to 4th because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
TIFFS is the country’s first tailored exhibition for the fisheries industry and this year’s event has recreational fishing as one of its four major priorities. The TIFFS Online 2021 will feature online services, including virtual booth displays, meeting scheduling and messaging, welcoming overseas exhibitors and visitors to explore new business opportunities. The organiser will also hold a wide range of events, including an international forum, one-on-one procurement meetings and new product launches with livestream broadcasts.
Last year, TIFFS was one of the few physical B2B fishery trade shows in the world to be held as scheduled thanks to support from key industry players. It attracted 90 exhibitors from 11 countries and nearly 5,000 online and offline buyers from ten countries. Both virtual and hybrid – online plus offline – booths are still available for international exhibitors with a 10% discount for those registering before the end of this month.
