Seafood Expo Global Returns to Barcelona

The largest and most varied seafood expo in the world, Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global, will hold its 29th edition in Barcelona from April 25–27, 2023. The event, which was put on by Diversified Communications, made its Catalan capital debut in April of last year and was a hit at the Gran Va location of Fira de Barcelona.

Building on the success of the 2022 edition, the event returns to the same location in Barcelona and, for three days, serves as the largest commercial and face-to-face trade event for the seafood industry. It has a significant economic impact on the city as well as the industry globally.

A sizable display hall for Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global will highlight all varieties of seafood products as well as processing tools and services from international providers. Additionally, the 29th edition will broaden the scope of its conference program as a forum for addressing fresh issues, chances, and solutions in the industry on a global scale. The event will feature more than 20 educational sessions led by professionals in the field. This year, the Conference registration fee includes access to the session videos.

Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global held its debut edition in Barcelona, bringing together 26,703 industry professionals from around the world and 1,556 exhibitors from 77 countries in 39,847m2 of sold show space. The group, which affirms the Catalan capital’s considerable potential and socioeconomic worth for the industry and the city, projects an annual economic impact of up to EUR100m for it.

“We expect long-term growth in Barcelona,” said Liz Plizga, group vice president at Diversified Communications. “Last year’s successful first edition in Barcelona validated the benefits of moving a global event the size of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global in a modern and convenient location that present long-term growth opportunities. The exhibit halls were buzzing during all three days, and you could feel the excitement of being back in-person from both sides of the aisle. At the end of the event, exhibitors and visitors alike were looking forward to the 2023 edition.”
