The McLean, Virginia-headquartered National Fisheries Institute (NFI) has decided to reschedule its 2021 Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC) from January to May as part of an effort to ensure attendees are able to join the annual event.
Throughout the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic (SARSW-CoV-2), NFI has produced webinars on everything from Covid-19 market impacts to regulatory changes and value chain alterations. The success of these presentations and the significant attendance illustrate that members of the seafood community are hungry for detailed trend and data analysis, the hallmarks of the annual GSMC. While the digital space is an important platform, hour-long virtual meetings provide a limited experience compared to a full program.
Moving the conference allows NFI to continue to offer this event and provide much needed critical information during a time when there has been so much disruption in the market.
GSMC is now slated for May 23-28, 2021 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coronado, California, and NFI will provide more details in the coming months.
