The first seafood exhibition to take place Barcelona is already larger than any previous event in Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global’s history.
The organisers expect it to reignite the global seafood industry’s in-person events as it takes place in April next year at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via venue.
Five months ahead of the 2022 event, 41,985 square metres of exhibition space have already been sold, an increase of 3,3% over 2019, which was the largest since its inception.
‘We’re excited to see that our first global event in Barcelona is generating strong interest within the industry. As of today, we have already received contracts for the 2022 edition representing a larger exhibit space than any editions of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global, and it’s growing larger every day,’ said Wynter Courmont, Event Director, Diversified Communications.
‘With five months left in the sales cycle, we look forward to having a successful first edition in the beautiful city of Barcelona and bringing our global audiences to the Fira de Barcelona venue, as well as developing special events to provide an enhanced onsite experience with a comprehensive conference program and the Seafood Excellence Global Awards.’
Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global is the world’s largest and most diverse seafood trade event bringing together more than 29,000 industry professionals from around the globe and more than 2000 exhibiting companies from 89 countries.
‘Going into 2022, we understand the situation with COVID-19 can be volatile and that companies, depending on their locations, might be faced with travel restrictions,’ explained Diversified Group VP Liz Plizga.
‘We are working closely with Fira de Barcelona and the city to ensure we can host a valuable in-person event that will bring back the representation that makes Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global the most comprehensive global seafood marketplace and trade event in the world.’
