Portland, ME (USA) – 12 August 2020 – The organizers of the annual Seafood Expo Asia, produced by Diversified Communications, announced today that it has become necessary to cancel the November 2020 edition due to ongoing health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was scheduled to take place on 18-20 November 2020 in Singapore.
Despite some re-opening measures internationally and locally, there are still far too many uncertainties about the impact COVID-19 will have on travel and mass gatherings this November. Consequently, it is impossible to hold an event that would provide an experience the seafood community would find valuable.
“This has been a challenging year for the seafood community and we are thankful for the support from the industry, our vendors and partners,” said Liz Plizga, Group Vice President, Diversified Communications. “We will continue to evaluate our offerings and find solutions to help our customers connect and develop business during this difficult time.”
The Seafood Expo Asia team will reach out to customers to answer questions about the cancellation of the 2020 edition. They will discuss opportunities to continue to move their business ahead in the Asian market, access educational resources and reconnect with seafood buying communities going forward, and in 2021.
“We look forward to offering an event that will facilitate business between seafood buyers throughout Asia and suppliers from around the world in 2021,” added Plizga.
