Full house at Pacific Marine Expo 2006
December 1, 2006
From 16 to 18 November 2006, the large Qwest Field Event Center in Seattle was packed to the rim with professionals, hobbyist and other enthusiasts within the maritime community.
For three full days, several hundred maritime manufacturers were visited by several thousand people. The Pacific Marine Expo is the Pacific Northwest venue for the Marine and Fishing industry on the West Coast. The visitors come from everywhere along the American and Canadian west coast to check out the latest gear, equipment and information, and to question the the experts at hand offering solutions, products and opportunities.
The Pacific Marine Expo is an annual event presented by the National Fisherman and WorkBoat magazines. According to the event's web site, they can offer the experts, products and information that you need to keep your marine business running efficiently and profitably. Pacific Marine Expo buyers are a powerful force, spending $279.5 million annually on marine related products and services. Representing all working vessels, from tug boats and ferries, patrol and charter boats to fishing and processing vessels, these buyers are looking for products and services to fit their needs.
This year, Simrad was kept busy on booth 923. We featured several important fisheries products in the 20-foot booth. Among the products on display were the new Simrad FS70 trawl system, the PI wireless trawl system with its yellow sensors, as well as sonars and echo sounders. The show was a great success with orders from new and repeat customers.
