We’ve got a great group heading to one of our favorite events of the year – Seafood Expo North America! Although we just like to refer to it as “Boston”, Seafood Expo North America is the largest seafood trade event in North American, and this year it’s bigger than ever.
It’s always been hard to take in all the exhibitors in Boston, and it’s going to be even harder this year – wear your walking shoes! For the first time in its history, the show will exceed 200,000 net square feet. That’s a lot of vendors!
The show kicks off on March 15 and runs for three days. You better believe all three of those days will be long ones for our SMS team – packed from sunrise to well after sunset.
The show is a one stop shop for learning about new products, connecting with current and potential vendors, working on logistical issues, spending time with colleagues and customers, and attending presentations on a variety of subjects.
There is also a lot of eating! Sampling products, appreciation events and of course partaking in all the amazing seafood that Boston has to offer – no one leaves hungry!
We’re also looking forward to getting together with our colleagues in Sea Pact at a reception on Sunday night. It’s a chance for all the companies who are involved in this great group to get together and celebrate, as well as look for prospective funding opportunities and projects we might be interested in supporting. If you’ll be in Boston, join us after the show floor closes on Sunday from 4:30 to 5 pm in room 253A (Stavis Seafoods) for food, drinks, and more!
