You won't need to book any rooms for the Brussels seafood show in 2021 because the show is moving to Barcelona, Diversified Communications, organizers of the event, announced Tuesday.
Seafood Expo Global has taken place in Brussels, Belgium, since 1993. Diversified said the shift in locations is because the show has outgrown its Brussels venue.
Diversified is working to ensure a smooth transition to Barcelona in 2021," said Mary Larkin, president of Diversified Communications USA. "Moving the event to a larger city and venue, with opportunity for long term growth, is a necessary evolution. It will enhance the visitor experience and the business being done between buyers and sellers," she said.
Diversified is working with accommodations company B-Network and has secured a hotel room block for the event, which is scheduled to take place April 27 - 29 at the Fira de Barcelona, Gran Via, which is “one of the largest and most innovative venues in Europe,” according to Diversified.
The venue features 200,000 square meters of floor space, eight exhibit halls, more than 40 restaurants, and is accessible using the city’s mass transit system, Diversified said.
The 2020 Seafood Expo Global will take place as scheduled April, 22 - 23 at the Brussels Expo hall.
