Brussels, Belgium (14 April 2017) – The next Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global, produced by Diversified Communications, will take place in Brussels, Belgium, Tuesday 25 April through Thursday 27 April. Celebrating 25 editions in Brussels, this year’s event will be the largest ever in terms of exhibit space according to event organizers. More than 1,800 exhibiting companies from 79 countries will be displaying their seafood products, services and equipment in more than 38,350 square meters of space. “We are thrilled to be celebrating 25 editions of bringing the global seafood community together under one roof and see continued growth in the event year after year,” said Wynter Courmont, Event Director for Diversified Communications. “Each year, this exposition continues to offer an excellent opportunity for the international seafood community to meet, network and get industry news at a global level.” The exposition will bring thousands of industry players from every sector of the seafood industry from around the globe to meet with new and existing suppliers, learn about emerging trends and discuss industry challenges and successes, according to event organizers. Attending seafood buyers who will be represented include restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, catering services, importers, distributors, seafood markets and more. Among this year’s exhibitors, 73 national and regional pavilions will be showcasing their seafood products and equipment with new pavilion participation this year from Latvia, Myanmar, Poland and Venezuela. New country participation will include Costa Rica, Cyprus, Myanmar, Romania and Venezuela. The event’s success and growth over the years can be attributed to the growing popularity of seafood worldwide. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), seafood consumption has risen to more than 20 kilograms a year, thanks to stronger aquaculture supply and demand, record hauls for some key species and reduced waste. In addition, global consumption of fish and seafood has doubled since 1973 and is estimated to reach 178 metric tons by 2025.* Alongside Seafood Expo Global is Seafood Processing Global, representing every aspect of seafood processing, including packaging materials & equipment, refrigeration/freezing equipment & supplies, primary processing equipment, secondary processing equipment, hygiene control/sanitation and quality assurance services. Seafood Processing Global will be located in Halls 4 and 8 during the three-day event.
