The Underwater Harvesters Association was scheduled to attend the Seafood Expo Global from April 21-23. However, this tradeshow had to be postponed due to the global outbreak of Covid-19. It was rescheduled for June 2020, but just recently Diversified Events has decided to cancel the whole Expo for 2020. This would have been the UHA’s fourth time exhibiting at the Seafood Expo Global. Since attending events and marketing towards the European Union market, we are seeing consistent export numbers of Geoduck from Canada into the EU and UK.
Geoduck from Canada is now available in Italy, France, the UK, and the Netherlands. It is important for the UHA to continue marketing in EU and grow awareness for geoduck. With the outbreak of a global pandemic, we aim to reduce our dependability on just one market. The UHA is hoping that Geoduck from Canada can be enjoyed as a seafood delicacy all over the world. We will attend the next Seafood Expo Global in September 2021 in a new location: Barcelona, Spain.
