HONG KONG, 4 September, 2017 – Seafood buyers looking for innovative fish and shellfish products to satisfy their customer’s demands will have more choice than ever when Seafood Expo Asia, organized by Diversified Communications, opens at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre this week from 5-7 September, 2017.
Thousands of international visitors which include retailers, importers, caterers, wholesalers, distributors, restauranteurs, hoteliers and chefs, will be able to source the most popular live, fresh, chilled, frozen and value-added seafood products from Asia and around the world.
This year’s exposition will feature over 230 exhibiting companies from 31 countries, with new participating countries including Djibouti, Dutch Caribbean, Falkland Islands, Morocco, Iceland, Mexico, Denmark and the Maldives.
The event also welcomes 21 regional and national pavilions with exhibits from Spain, France, South Korea, China and the Maldives, each showcasing their own unique, local premium produce to the seafood community.
“Seafood Expo Asia is the go-to event for industry buyers to source the products they need to keep up-to-date with market trends and demands,” says Event Director, Ms. Iris Kwan. “Given the favourable growth forecasts for Asia, increasing numbers of both buyers and suppliers are choosing Seafood Expo Asia as their primary trading platform for the Asian region.”
