H a l i f a x W i l l Host W o r l d Fishing Exhibition
The international World Fishing Exhibition, scheduled for Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, from August 31 to September 7, 1977, has already succeeded in attracting more than 100 exhibitors from 16 nations.
The exhibition marks the first North American venue for this binennial trade show, inaugurated in London in 1963. The exhibition has previously been held in Britain, Ireland, Spain and France.
By every current indication, the Halifax Exhibition will be the most successful yet staged. Show organizers, Industrial and Trade Fairs Limited of England, attribute a large part of the pre-exhibition success to the cooperation received from the administration of the Development, Fisheries, and Tourism departments of the Province of Novia Scotia.
Although the eight-day exhibition will follow the usual pattern of "admission by invitation only," on trade days this will present no problem to bona fide fishermen and people of the industry who are being given the opportunity to obtain complimentary tickets. Because of the significant public interest being demonstrated regionally, the exhibition will be opened to the public on September 3, 4 and 5.
The eighth World Fishing Exhibition is sponsored by the Federal Government of Canada, the Provincial Government of Nova Scotia, the City of Halifax, the City of Dartmouth, the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, and World Fishing Magazine.
