We're proud to announce that we are the principal sponsors for the Trans-Tasman Rock Lobster Industry Conference 2019, August 11th to 13th in Queenstown. Come and join us in our backyard.
The CRA8 Rock Lobster Industry Association has announced Fiordland Lobster Company and the South Australian Lobster Company as principal sponsors of the Trans-Tasman Rock Lobster Industry Conference 2019.
CRA8 RLIA Chief Executive Malcolm Lawson: “From the start, they’ve been enthusiastic about working with us. Having such a strong supporter as Fiordland Lobster will go a long way towards making the 2019 Congress a great success so we are very pleased to be able to formalise this arrangement.”
We're a Trans-Tasman organisation ourselves, of course, and with the 2019 Conference taking place in our backyard of Queenstown, we were always going to be involved.
The growth of this every-second-year event has been a credit to the industry, since the year the low key Australian Congress first went international in Blenheim 2011. Now it seems the wider NZ seafood industry is taking a lead from us, with this from NZ Seafood regarding its own annual NZ Seafood Industry Conference:
"We are excited to announce that the 2019 conference will be held in Queenstown on 8 and 9 August 2019. This will align with the Trans-Tasman Rock Lobster Conference that will be held on 11, 12 and 13 August."
What a time for Fiordland, SALCo and our new Wild Legend branding to be stepping forward.
