Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global Continue To Grow
The 26th edition of Seafood Expo Global and the 20th edition of Seafood Processing Global, produced by Diversified Communications, will take place in Brussels, Belgium, from 24 to 26 April 2018.
This annual global event attracts seafood buyers and suppliers from around the world and hosts the prestigious Seafood Excellence Awards.
Last year’s event saw more than 28,500 seafood professionals attending the exposition from over 150 countries, making it the largest edition in the event’s history.
According to event organisers, next month’s event will feature more exhibit space than last year’s edition, and it is on track to maximise the entire footprint available for the event.
“It’s so exciting to see companies’ growing interest in participating in the event,” says Wynter Courmont, Event Director for Diversified Communications.
“Records are meant to be broken. At this time, we are still receiving requests to exhibit in this year’s edition, and the event has surpassed last year’s numbers in terms of exhibit space by more than 1,000 square metres,” Courmont added.
Seafood Expo Global and Seafood Processing Global, combined, will feature exhibiting suppliers from 79 countries and from every sector of the seafood industry.
More than 70 national and regional pavilions will be showcasing their seafood products and equipment, with new pavilions participating this year, from Colombia and France.
Seafood Expo Global will highlight companies of fresh, frozen and value-added fish and seafood, as well as processed and packaged fish and seafood.
Meanwhile, Seafood Processing Global will represent every aspect of seafood processing, including processing and packaging materials and equipment, refrigeration, freezing equipment and supplies, primary and secondary processing equipment, hygiene control, sanitation, and seafood industry services.
Exhibiting companies will present their products to global buyers, including restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, catering services, importers, distributors, wholesalers, seafood markets and other retail and foodservice companies.
Additionally, the Seafood Excellence Awards will take place on Tuesday 24 April, recognising the best seafood products at the exposition.
