NFI’s 2021 Global Seafood Market Conference moved from January to May
The National Fisheries Institute (NFI) has rescheduled its annual Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC) from January to May as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Originally scheduled for mid-January, the event will now take place from 23 to 28 May, 2021, at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coronado, California.
GSMC was rescheduled “as part of an effort to ensure attendees are able to join this important annual event,” according to NFI President John Connelly.
“Throughout the ongoing pandemic, NFI has produced webinars on everything from COVID-19 market impacts to regulatory changes and value chain alterations. The success of these presentations and the significant attendance illustrate that members of the seafood community are hungry for detailed trend and data analysis, the hallmarks of the annual GSMC. While the digital space is an important platform, hour-long virtual meetings provide a limited experience compared to a full program,” Connelly said. “Moving the conference allows NFI to continue to offer this event and provide much-needed critical information during a time when there has been so much disruption in the market.”
NFI said it will be providing additional details on the conference in coming months.
