Brussels Seafood Expo, April 2018

20/04/2018

One of the largest seafood fairs, the Brussels Seafood Expo, will open on 24 April 2018. This year it will feature more than 1 850 exhibiting companies from 79 countries from around the world and will run until 26 April 2018 with a very full agenda.

Fish and fisheries products are the protagonists in the seven pavilions dedicated to fisheries and aquaculture. During the three days of the Expo, Brussels will become the perfect venue for fisheries stakeholders to meet and discuss about the current state of the market industry and future perspectives. Innovations in product development and market potential are among the topics covered during the global business core.

Several initiatives take place concurrently at the exposition, such as the Seafood Excellence Global Awards, which confers a prize to the best seafood products in the categories of “Best Retail Product” and “Best Hotel/Restaurant/Catering (HORECA) Product”. The competition judges may also decide to award the best products exhibited at Seafood Expo Global for the following categories: innovation, convenience, health and nutrition, retail packaging and seafood product line.

FAO GLOBEFISH will participate in the event at the usual booth location (Hall 6, Booth 1305). We look forward to meet our wide network of correspondents and hold meetings with different industry representatives to discuss topics of mutual interest such as how to raise awareness about fisheries contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The event is also the occasion for FAO GLOBEFISH to meet with the Associate Members and Partners, as well as the FISHINFONetwork members, government representatives, associations and international institutions.

Last year’s edition of Brussels Seafood Expo was very successful. According to the organizer, it attracted more than 28 500 visitors. The fair participants welcomed the FAO GLOBEFISH booth and showed interested in our range of information.

Please come visit us also this year to share your point of view on the fish market trends or to join our network of correspondents!
