Seafood Expo Asia, produced by Diversified Communications, is bringing back the Seafood Expo Asia Reconnect online matchmaking event that debuted last year after the live show was cancelled due devastating Covid-19 outbreaks around the world. Scheduled for November 15-19, 2021, the virtual gathering is designed to facilitate the meeting, trading and sourcing needs of the seafood industry in the Asian market.
“In the current challenging situation caused by the pandemic (SARS-CoV-2), it is even more important for buyers and suppliers to maintain business continuity,” said Liz Plizga, group vice president of Portland, Maine, USA-headquartered Diversified Communications. “Buyers are looking for ways to build relationships with international seafood suppliers and find new products, and Seafood Expo Asia Reconnect is the platform that will enable these relationships by connecting them together based on their business needs and product offerings.”
During the five days of business meetings, seafood suppliers from around the world and Asia will present products in frozen, refrigerated, canned and ambient form to buyers throughout Asia. The buyers will include importers, operators of supermarkets and hypermarkets, restauranteurs, foodservice and catering companies, e-commerce platforms and distributors who are looking for the products they need to satisfy their customers’ appetite.
Prior to the event, participants in this online program will be able to access the platform and search the database, match with the right suppliers or buyers and schedule targeted meetings. For more information, visit www.seafoodexpo.com/asia/reconnect/
