It serves as the meeting point for the entire processing branch, distributors, importers and exporters of frozen seafood products.The exhibition is the largest annual event dedicated to the frozen seafood sector in Spain.

In addition to offering an extensive exhibition area where fisheries stakeholders can meet and discuss international market trends, CONXEMAR will host the eighth edition of the FAO-CONXEMAR Congress, taking place on 30 September 2019.

This year, the congress will focus on social sustainability, which has become a major concern in the fisheries sector due to incidents of labour right violations and human rights abuses found at different stages of the fisheries value chain. Industry experts from across the globe will participate in a series of panel discussions aimed at deepening commitment to the issue of social sustainability.
