Health and Safety Information

With many things changing in the world right now, we want to assure you that as we continue to plan the 28th edition of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global in Barcelona, Spain, the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, sponsors, speakers and staff is our top priority.

With the guidance of event industry associations UFI, AEO and SISO, Diversified Communications has adapted the All Secure Standards.

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as updates and recommendations from public health officials, local government and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are in close collaboration with the venue, Fira de Barcelona, which is open for business and holding safe and successful events. Additionally, we are working with leading event industry associations globally as they develop guidelines for the events industry.

! NOTE the following important information:

New Update on Mask Requirement:

  • Masks are no longer required to attend the Expo. On April 20, Spanish authorities have lifted the mask requirement. It is no longer mandatory to wear a face mask except in certain settings like healthcare centers, services and establishments, and in public transportation (air, rail, bus, ships) when safety distance is not guaranteed. 

Vaccine Requirement Update:

  • Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or negative COVID-19 test will no longer be required to attend the event

Helpful Resources Available for You:

  • An onsite Testing Location (in the Registration area in Hall 1) will be available for anyone who needs to be tested to travel back home.

  • Medical Insurance for non-Spanish attendees. For extra peace of mind, we have secured inclusive insurance to cover you during the entire duration of the Expo in the event you get a positive PCR test result for COVID-19.  This includes medical and hospitalization expenses, medical transport to your country of origin and hotel stays for insured individuals.
