Towards the end of January, we were surprised over the announcement that the organization of Seafood Expo Southern Europe has decided to cancel the 2015 edition, which was scheduled to be held from 21st to 23rd September in Barcelona.

According to the official press release, the reason for this cancellation is due to aspects to do with the dates and the current situation that the market is going through. It is important to point out that this press release does not refer to a definitive halt, but rather to a reappraisal of the exhibition’s format.

For its part, the Conxemar Exhibition organization which, at the last edition, confirmed its leadership as the leading exhibition in the sector in southern Europe, has decided to take advantage of the circumstance and is already considering expanding as an exhibition and its target within the Seafood area, aiming to go beyond the frozen sector.

Conxemar will be held on 5th, 6th and 7th October, in the Spanish town of Vigo. At Interatlantic, as members of the organization, we shall be expecting all the usual visitors for yet another edition, and we invite all companies that still have not had the opportunity to come to Vigo to become acquainted with this excellent exhibition.
