After months of anticipation, it is time once again for the Seafood Expo North America / Seafood Processing North America – the largest gathering of seafood professional on the continent – to take over Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

The 2024 iteration of the expo kicks off this Sunday, 10 March, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and will continue through Tuesday, 12 March.

Attendees are invited to explore the exhibit hall, where the world’s biggest seafood companies will be showcasing their fresh, frozen, canned, value-added, processed, and packaged seafood products. With more than 249,500 square feet of dedicated exhibit space – making it even larger than last year’s expo – visitors can explore the vast array of companies representing the processing, packaging, logistics, and support services sectors at the event.

This year, we’ll be highlighting companies showcasing sustainable practices and aquaculture innovations like Integrated Information Systems SA, Seawise Innovative Packaging, and Cesit Mensucat. Other companies showcasing this year include Mowi, Cermaq, Anova Foods Inc, Leroy USA, Samuels Seafood, Multi X, Phillips Foods Inc, Hofseth International AS, Seaborn AS, Harbor Seafood Inc, Balfego & Balfego, ULMA Servicios de Mantencion S. Coop., Hiddenfjord, Thermogreen, and Full Measure Oyster.

More than 45 countries will be exhibiting at the expo as well, with Norway, the U.K., Ecuador, and Chile increasing their presence. We’ll also be welcoming new exhibiting companies from countries including Azerbaijan, Malaysia, Mauritania, and Myanmar.

Our 2024 event features a full conference program with a keynote address from political economist and renowned author Mark Blyth of the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. The program includes more than 30 educational sessions featuring the top seafood industry experts discussing a variety of topics, including aquaculture, artificial intelligence, consumer trends, sustainability, business leadership, and traceability.
