Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America, taking place this March 15-17 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, has expanded its exhibition space to over 200,000sqm, to strengthen its position as the largest seafood trade event in North America.
“Reports state 91% of seafood in the United States is imported from other countries, showing promise to international companies looking to expand their foothold. Regionally, there is notable influx in new participation from Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Morocco and Spain,” said Liz Plizga, group vice president for Diversified Communications, the organizers of the event. “The increase in participation signifies the importance of Seafood Expo North America for companies, worldwide, looking to penetrate this market.”
Last year, over 20,000 professionals took part in the exposition, which will also consist of an educational conference program, master classes, culinary demonstrations and an awards ceremony.
