Global Shrimp Outlook: 2004

Conference moved to Bangkok; Registration now available
July 20, 2004

The Global Aquaculture Alliance has rescheduled its Global Shrimp Outlook: 2004 marketing meeting for November 9-12 at the five-star Four Seasons Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. Despite the changes in venue and schedule, the annual event is expected to attract over 200 of the top players in the shrimp industry during its fourth year of rising attendance.

GAA presents the Global Shrimp Outlook series to help international shrimp marketers gain vital perspectives on the future of the shrimp industry. During this year's focused morning meeting sessions, industry experts and executives will report on current shrimp production and demand, and project shrimp prices for 2005 and beyond. Afternoons will remain free for business interaction and relaxing social activities.

The GSOL schedule also includes panel discussions that will allow participants to actively address such issues as antidumping, antibiotic residues, product traceability and facility certification. Given the timing of the preliminary antidumping duties on imported shrimp recently established by the U.S. Department of Commerce, this Global Shrimp Outlook meeting will likely be even more strategically important than usual.

Global Shrimp Outlook: 2004 is a by-invitation meeting for major international shrimp buyers, producers and related suppliers. Due to the proprietary nature of the conference content, registration is not available to members of the media.
