Exhibitions are held annually around the world to bring industry stakeholders together to communicate and share knowledge and experience. You may be interested to know that holding an exhibition is not a new phenomenon and has its roots in the ancient world. Yes, they do! In ancient times, exhibitions were used to exchange goods and information between different nations and tribes. These events were important for the promotion and sale of goods and the exchange of cultural, social, and business information.

Most of the information about holding exhibitions in ancient times comes from the exhibitions of ancient Greece and ancient Rome. Various people from all over the world participated in these exhibitions, where goods, works of art, and other local products were displayed.

The history of holding exhibitions shows that these events have always played an important role in advertising, marketing, and business exchange, and are known as one of the main tools of commercial and industrial development in the world.

Nowadays, the exhibitions have become more exclusive and we see several exhibitions held every year related to different industries. Some of these exhibitions are open to the public and anyone can visit them. Others are specific to the industry stakeholders and the purpose of holding them is to create an opportunity for interaction between them.

Fisheries and aquaculture, one of the most important food industries, is no exception. As one of the most important events in the aquatic industry, international aquatic exhibitions play an important role in the development, innovation, and progress of this industry. These exhibitions provide a suitable opportunity for manufacturers, distributors, developers, and others interested in the industry to communicate with each other, introduce new products and services, identify marketing opportunities, and learn from international experiences.

These events also serve as a bridge for the exchange of knowledge and technology, the promotion of the industry, and the promotion of international standards and regulations in various fields related to aquatics.
