New dates for the 2021 edition of Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America, have been released. The in-person event, which was recently postponed from March 14-16 due to the novel coronavirus (SARS-Co-V-2) pandemic, has now been rescheduled for July 11-13 in Boston, Massachusetts. The expo will provide a platform for seafood suppliers and buyers from the North American market to get together for three days of business meetings, networking and educational sessions.
“While the summer is an untraditional time of year for this event, we are pleased to have been able to find new dates in 2021 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center that will allow our seafood community to gather once again. We’ve had conversations with seafood buyers and industry professionals who have expressed the need to reconnect and are eager to meet in-person in July,” said Liz Plizga, group vice president of Portland, Maine-headquartered Diversified Communications, the show’s organizing company.
“We’ve been hosting Seafood Expo North America in Boston for four decades, and we look forward to welcoming the seafood community back to the city in July next year,” said David Gibbons, executive director of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.
As planning for the July event progresses, Diversified Communications personnel will continue to monitor closely the situation around Covid-19 and work with the venue and the appropriate authorities to ensure the health and safety of attendees, vendors, employees and local community.
“Until we meet again in Boston, we are thrilled to present our first online conference program, Seafood Expo North America Reconnect that will take place during the week of March 14, 2021,” said Plizga. “The conference program will consist of live and pre-recorded educational sessions providing insights on emerging market trends and topics relevant to today’s evolving seafood business environment. This is a great opportunity for the industry to stay connected, informed and create conversations leading up to the conference program in July.”
