Sri Lanka Participation at the Seafood Expo Global 2017

Seafood Expo Global 2017, the world’s largest seafood trade event will take place at Brussels Expo in Brussels, Belgium from April 25 – 27, 2017 with the participation of over 1700 exhibiting companies from over 80 countries and more than 26,000 buyers, suppliers, media and other seafood professionals from over 140 countries.

The three-day event is a bustling meeting and trading point for seafood exporters, seafood related service providers and buyers from various sectors including owners, proprietors, executive purchasing managers, category managers, private label program buyers and equipment and packaging buyers from retail, foodservice, and other categories in need of food and hospitality services.

The country pavilion organized by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board (SLEDB) will be one of the 68 country pavilions at the Seafood Expo Global 2017 (SEG 2017) with the participation of eight leading Sri Lankan seafood exporters specializing in fresh chilled, frozen and processed seafood.

The exposition provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors to meet buyers searching to purchase; 

  • Fresh fish and seafood
  • Frozen fish and seafood
  • Value-added seafood
  • Processed and packaged fish and seafood

As well as meet international seafood industry service providers including processing and packaging equipment suppliers and freight forwarders and logistical service providers. 

Opportunities for Participants

Continuous participation at the exhibition will strengthen the relationship with the existing buyers, showcase competencies and capabilities of Sri Lankan seafood industry especially with regard to product quality, enhancing Sri Lanka’s image among the exposition visitors. 

The participants will also be able to identify new technology used in the global seafood industry, identify new value-added products, obtain first-hand market intelligence, current market trends, view the products offered by our competitors and their product presentations.

The EU has lifted the ban on Sri Lanka and the Seafood exporters are looking forward to re-establish the contacts with their buyers in the EU. The SEG will be a platform for them to re-build the relationship & plan for future exports. 

It is proposed to organize a press conference coincide with the SEG 2017 on 26th April 2017 at 16.00 hrs at Room No. 1125, Hall No.11 (Level 3) at Brussels Expo. This would be good opportunity to publicize Sri Lanka’s re-entry to the EU market after a lapse of two years and also to enhance the awareness among the international seafood trade of the tangible measures taken by Sri Lanka over the last few years in creating a robust legal and policy framework to fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities at global level
