The 28th Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global aims to revive the global seafood industry’s in-person events, according to some of the Exposition’s exhibitors. The event is due to be held on 26-28th April 2022 in Barcelona.
‘We consider Seafood Expo Global to be of the utmost importance to be able to meet our business partners in person, go over things together, exchange ideas, seek new opportunities, and strengthen our relationships with them,’ stated Karl Hjálmarsson at Iceland Seafood International.
‘Seafood Expo Global is the only seafood exhibition that gathers people from all over the world, whereas other events in which we also participate tend to be more regional.’
After 27 years in Brussels, the event is moving to Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Vía venue, where more than 2000 exhibiting companies from more than 158 countries will meet.
In this respect, exhibiting companies are welcoming the move to Barcelona, and highlight the business opportunities the new event location will bring.
‘We chose Barcelona for the long-term growth opportunities the city, as an international destination, and Fira de Barcelona as a modern and innovative venue, have to offer,’ said Liz Plizga, Group VP at organising company Diversified Communications.
During its tenure in Brussels, Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global has become the largest and most diverse seafood event in the world, gathering more than 29,000 industry professionals from around the globe.
‘With a more stable global situation next April, we are excited to meet in person and share our projects at the exhibition in Barcelona, as well as to mark the restarting of in-person events as part of the new normal,’ said Pablo Mugica, CEO of Frime, one of the Spanish exhibiting companies that has confirmed its participation in the event.
