Boston Bound!Posted by Santa Monica Admin, on March 5th, 2013 in Announcements, Seafood Education
Like most of the seafood industry, we’ve got a group of people packing their bags (and winter coats) and heading to East Coast late this week for the International Boston Seafood Show. This annual event is the largest seafood trade exposition in North America and we’re looking forward to another great event in 2013!
Meetings with current (and potential) suppliers, checking out new products, attending educational panels and presentations, and plenty of informal relationship building – Boston is the place to be this weekend!
Our Executive Vice President, Michael Cigliano, is looking forward to seeing some current customers along with plenty of potential new customers – all in one spot. “Boston is a great sales opportunity and I love learning about what’s new on the market,” he says.
Logan Kock, our Vice President of Strategic Purchasing & Responsible Sourcing says his favorite part about the Boston Seafood Show is “reaffirming vendor relationships even if it’s just a hand shake enroute between meetings. Our long term established suppliers are one of our most important assets, providing us market information as well product.”
Anthony Cigliano Jr., one of our top Seafood Buyers, also appreciates the opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world. “The best part is seeing all my vendors that are not local, and trying to find new vendors.”
Dave Litle, Vice President of Sales and Marketing is looking forward to meeting with colleagues face to face. ”I also appreciate the chance to sort of feel the vibe of the industry at the show… hoping this year is going to be a great one, and I think the show is a great chance to see how positive people are feeling.”
We’ll see you in Boston!
