As every year, Cocci Luciano Srl has exhibited its best products at Conxemar 2014, the historical Galician exhibition for fisheries and aquaculture, which was held in Vigo October 7 to 9. The fair is a meeting point in one of the most important fishing ports in Europe. In the past edition, the fair had brought together exhibitors from more than 80 countries. Today, in fact, it is one of the most important events in the fresh and frozen seafood processing and marketing industry.
The Spanish three days have been very much alive and vibrant this year, with a growing number of international visitors who visited our stand with interest, recognizing from afar the brand of Cocci Luciano Srl. The people we met belong to different fields of the industry of aquaculture and shellfish packaging. The fair was an interesting opportunity to host a multitude of nationalities and experiences in our stand, together with our historical customers, friends and business partners.
Among the many machines that visitors to our stand were able to appreciate in person, the brand-new Economy Bag Trace has certainly attracted the attention of the most important shellfish expedition centres. The volumetric dosing belt has also been particularly successful, especially among the mussel farmers, since the low voltage power supply allows to place it even on small boats. All machines on display were booked by Spanish customers. The innovative manual bag closer with thermal printer was the first to be sold: in addition to a new design with built-in IP67 keyboard IP67, the possibility to use tag labels out of the standard size has captured the interest of many customers.
Conxemar 2014 closed the doors of its sixteenth edition with a number of appearances that comes close to the figures achieved the year the crisis began, in 2008. This year the fair hosted a total of 26,219 visitors, meaning 2,000 more than last year, in line with the general feeling we had during the days of the exhibition, in which the largest volume of visitors was very obvious. Visitors came from 94 countries around the world, ten more than the past year, with the broadest participation recorded by Portugal, Italy, France, Holland and Greece.
