The 10th edition of Seafood Expo Asia will take place from 14 to 16 September at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, in Singapore. Diversified Communications, organizers of the world’s leading seafood trade expositions, announced the return of its in-person event, Seafood Expo Asia, to the Asian market.
The move to Singapore will cater to the varying needs across the seafood value chain in Asia and provide the industry with the opportunities to further explore business potential in various Asian markets.
As a major consumer, importer and producer of seafood, Asia is an important market for the seafood industry. Seafood Expo Asia is the seafood marketplace for Asia bringing together industry suppliers from around the world with seafood buyers from across Asia.
A gateway to Asia, Singapore is an important business hub for global trade. It is the world’s busiest shipping hub connected to 600 ports in over 120 countries. Its airport, Singapore Changi Airport, is a leading regional air hub and recognized as one of the best internationally.
Growing need to meet with international seafood suppliers
In fact, “findings from third-party independent research revealed that, driven by growing consumption and imports, Southeast Asia has a growing need to meet with international seafood suppliers. Seafood Expo Asia is well positioned to serve a wider Asian audience and create opportunity for the seafood community throughout Asia and the world,” said Liz Plizga, Group Vice President, Diversified Communications.
“The relocation will better position Seafood Expo Asia as a hub event to facilitate both Southeast and East Asia buyers in strong growing markets with easy accessibility,” Plizga assured.
Meanwhile, Poh Chi Chuan, Executive Director, Exhibitions & Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board said that “Seafood Expo Asia is the definitive seafood tradeshow for Asia, and its presence in Singapore shows the continued confidence our valued partners place in Singapore as a safe, reliable and trusted destination for business events. We look forward to extending a warm welcome to all participants to a safe and meaningful event in Singapore.”
