CANCELED – Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America @ Boston Exhibition and Convention Center
Sep 22 – Sep 24 all day

Dear Seafood Community,

It is with great disappointment that we have to bring you the news that we will not be able to meet in person in 2020.
Due to ongoing health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary to cancel the 2020 edition of Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America that was re-scheduled to take place on September 22 -24, 2020 in Boston, MA, USA.

Despite some re-opening measures nationally and locally, there are still far too many uncertainties about the impact that COVID-19 will have on travel and mass gatherings this September. Accordingly, it is impossible to hold an event that would provide an experience our seafood community would find valuable.

The Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America team will reach out to you to answer your questions about what the cancellation of the 2020 edition means for you. We are excited to discuss with you the opportunities to continue to build business and reconnect with the seafood buying communities going forward and for the 2021 edition.

We thank everyone in the industry, our vendors, and partners for their continued support while navigating these difficult times. We are determined to provide a valuable and safe business platform for the industry, and we look forward to bringing the seafood community back together in Boston on March 14-16, 2021.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at sales-na@seafoodexpo.com.
Stay well and healthy!

Kind regards,
Liz PlizgaGroup Vice PresidentDiversified Communications
