Yesterday the organizer of Seafood Expo Global and Seafood Expo North America Diversified Communications company announced that both exhibitions will be postponed till later 2021 due to difficult epidemiological situation.
Seafood Expo Global was to be held in Barcelona in April this year but was postponed to April 2021. New announced dates of the exhibition are September 7-9, 2021.
Every year Russia has a big national stand in Seafood Expo Global. Russian stand organizers - branch exhibition operator Expo Solutions Group and participants were receptive to this decision. “Visitors and exhibitors’ safety should be a main priority for all organizers. We think the decision to postpone the event till September was right. New dates provide a basis for us to think that event will be held in the format we used to. We as no one else know how hard is to make such decisions. We always keep in touch with the exhibition organizers and often discuss that Coronavirus situation may prevent some exhibitors to come to Barcelona in April. It’s better to have an event in other dates than held it in short format. We respect and support their decision” – Ivan Fetisov, Expo Solutions Group CEO commented the situation.
Seafood Expo North America was also cancelled this year. The event was to be held in Boston in March but was postponed to March 2021. Organizers didn’t specify the new dates but mentioned that they plan to have it mid-July 2021.
Thus, Seafood Expo Russia planned for July 6-8 will become the first exhibition in fishery industry in 2021.
