The device displays data transmitted by sensors installed on a ship, including shipborne radars, electronic mapping navigation system, sonar, echo sounder and cameras. VideoWall can be controlled not only from the captain's workstation but also from a computer which may be installed in any convenient place on board the ship.

Aurora Logistics, a Russian forwarding company, withdrew from its operations and brought to the exhibition its latest development, an energy container designed for supplying power to refrigerated containers.

Cold Trade Holding, a St. Petersburg based manufacturer of refrigeration equipment, presented in its booth a holographic device that created 3D projections of various units, which grabbed the attention of visitors and allowed them to get acquainted with the company's products in greater detail.

The use of up-to-date intellectual multimedia technology in the design solutions of exhibition booths is a key feature of SEAFOOD EXPO RUSSIA since the main mission of the organizers is to maximize the information delivery of the exhibition. However, Expo Solutions Group, the operator of the exhibition, did not leave the aesthetic design behind as well. The entrance to the exhibition pavilion was made in the form of a multimedia tunnel aquarium.
