A month after the 2016 Seafood Expo Global show in Brussels, there is a clearer picture of the impact the city’s March terror attacks had on attendance and the future of the event.

Attendance at the April expo slumped 17 percent, based on a comparison of numbers quoted in last year’s and this year’s press releases from Diversified Communications, operators of the event.

This year’s event, from which several large companies pulled out over security concerns, covered about 5 percent less space at the convention center – 35,862 square meters compared to 36,063 square meters last year.
