Trade shows hit by Covid restrictions

The Australian Tackle Trade Show, which was due to go ahead from July 8th to 10th, at the Gold Coast Exhibition Centre in Queensland has been forced to announce its cancellation.

The organisers, the Australian Fishing Trade Association, said: “The border restrictions put in place by the Queensland government to Sydney and Greater Sydney meant that too many of our exhibitors would be unable to attend, with no exhibitors, there's no show.

All monies paid to AFTA for stand space and tickets will be refunded in the coming weeks.”

The AFTA Trade Show will now take place from August 4th to 6th, 2022.

Meanwhile, TTW also understands that the Taiwan Fisheries and Seafood Show, scheduled for September 2nd to 4th, will now take place later in the year, with details to follow.

The decision follows a recent outbreak of Covid-19 cases in the country.
