The seafood industry will come together between May 7-9, 2019 in Brussels during the Seafood Expo Global and Seafood Processing Global trade show which will be hosted at the Brussels Expo center.
According to the organizers, the event is set to connect over 29,100 international buyers and suppliers. This year’s exhibition marks the 27th edition of Seafood Expo Global and the 21st edition of Seafood Processing Global.
While Seafood Expo Global will feature seafood suppliers from all over the globe which will be presenting their latest seafood products including frozen, processed and packaged, Seafood Processing Global provides visitors with every aspect of seafood processing including refrigeration and freezing equipment, packaging materials and equipment, as well as primary and secondary processing equipment.
“The 2018 event was a record-setting year for attendance, as well as for the number of exhibiting companies and total exhibit space cover, making it the largest ever in the event’s history. This year’s edition promises to be even bigger as we have expanded the exhibit space into a new hall,” said Wynter Courmont, event director for Diversified Communications.
In 2019, the organizers will expand the space allotted to Seafood Processing Global in order to include additional seafood processing companies. Among the exhibitors, more than 70 national and regional pavilions will put on display their products and equipment. A new pavilion this year is going to be set up by Busan Techno Park (regional from Korea). New country pavilions include Guyana, Uganda and Tanzania.
During the trade show, the organizers will also announce the Seafood Excellence Awards which include categories such as the Best Retail Product and Best Hotel/Restaurant/Catering. Special awards for Innovation, Convenience, Health and Nutrition, and Retail Packaging will also be presented.
