A delegation from the company DEFA visited the annual Seafood Expo Global exhibition in 2016, which took place in Brussels (Belgium) on 25th-27th April, 2016. This year some of the major market players refused to participate in the Forum due to the terrorist attacks in Brussels in the beginning of this year and many have reduced their presence.
However, the industry continues to evolve, as evident from active negotiations on the stands and outside the exhibition, a large number of new products on show, and the participation of decision-makers, which has been observed at the event itself.
Seafood Expo Global is the largest annual event in the world of seafood. More than 26,000 buyers, suppliers and other professionals from more than 140 countries around the world meet in one place in order to sign contracts, give presentations of trends and new products, and exchange information.
The exhibition represents the following areas:
The negotiations with partners from Chile, the Faroe Islands, China, Argentina, Thailand, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Taiwan and Ecuador took place in the form of private meetings. The meetings with potential partners also took place as part of the supply expanding strategy execution.
