There will not be trade shows in Boston or Barcelona this year.

Diversified Communications, owner of the events, confirmed this week that its Seafood Expo Global event in Barcelona, scheduled for September, has been canceled. Seafood Expo North America, otherwise known as the Boston seafood show, was canceled earlier in the year.

Both events are on the calendar for 2022. Assuming we are largely free from the grip of COVID by then, the question becomes, will you participate?
