Seafood Expo North America

March 11-13, 2018

Since its inception some 30 years ago, the Seafood Expo North America trade show (formerly the International Boston Seafood Show) has been a premier trade event for seafood producers and buyers throughout the world.  In 2017, over 1,348 exhibiting companies and over 20,000 visitors attended the show to do business, look for new products and keep abreast of industry trends. The Newfoundland and Labrador seafood industry has always been well represented at this event both as exhibitors and visitors. The department organizes a Newfoundland and Labrador pavilion with seafood companies and marketing organizations occupying part of this space. In addition, many of the province’s seafood companies and other industry stakeholders either have their own booths or exhibit with their distributors at the show. This event will continue to be a key marketing venue for the Newfoundland and Labrador seafood industry. http://www.seafoodexpo.com/north-america/
