Four days and counting to the 17th annual European Seafood Exposition. On Tuesday, exhibitors and visitors from around the world will descend upon the Brussels Exhibition Grounds to meet and greet, buy and sell seafood, and everything in between.
This year's three-day event commands more than 33,500 square meters of exhibit space and features 1,700-plus exhibiting companies and organizations from nearly 80 countries, including 67 country and regional pavilions.Can't make it to Brussels this year?

Three SeafoodSource editors will be on site bringing you the news as it happens: Editor Steven Hedlund, Assistant Editor April Forristall and Contributing Editor Lindsey Partos.
Even before the show kicks off, we'll be reporting from the European Tuna Conference and Friend of the Sea Day. Both events, which take place at the Sheraton Hotel in Brussels, feature a lengthy list of seafood-industry speakers.
On Tuesday, we'll be the first to report the winners of the ninth annual Seafood Prix d'Elite new products competition. This year's contest comprises 36 finalists representing 22 companies from 11 countries and four continents.

We're also covering two conferences: "Sustainability of the European Seafood Industry" on Wednesday and "Are Certification Costs Too High For Aquaculture Producers?" on Thursday. Both discussions are organized by Diversified Business Communications, which runs the European Seafood Exposition and publishes SeafoodSource. Thursday's talk will be moderated by SeafoodSource Editor Steven Hedlund.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. Throughout the day, news stories and video clips will be posted to SeafoodSource. And they're free to view — you don't need to open your wallets or purses to stay on top of the news from the European Seafood Exposition.
