For the fourth year in a row, UHA attended the BC Seafood Promotional Dinner in Guangzhou in October, 2019. Guangzhou is one of our most important markets because it is the largest distributor of Canadian geoduck in Southern China. This event is hosted by the BC Trade and Investment office in Guangzhou. They invite seven key seafood companies to exhibit, present, and donate product. The UHA sent 10 geoducks to Guangzhou to be prepared during the event.
With over 70 seafood buyers, wholesalers, and distributors from the Guangdong area, this event is a great opportunity for UHA to connect with interested leads. The evening starts off with a networking reception, where UHA has a networking table to hand out marketing material. Throughout this networking time, we connect with the buyers and exchange information. Afterwards, each of BC seafood companies give a short presentation, and then dinner is served.
