Barcelona trade show breaks records

Busy hall full of people at the expo

The 2024 edition of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global has broken records, with more than 35,000 professionals from the seafood sector attending.

SEG/SPG, held once again in Barcelon, is the world’s biggest trade show in its sector and this year’s event, which took place over 23-25 April, was the largest in its history. As well as record attendance, the 30th show in the series saw 2,244 exhibiting companies from 87 countries around the world.

With the expansion to pavilion 1, this year’s edition has occupied pavilions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the Gallery (between pavilions 4 and 5) of Barcelona’s Fira Gran Vía venue. The economic impact for the city is estimated at more than €156m (£133m).

“The industry relies on this event to achieve its annual business objectives in the global market. Exhibitors and visitors alike use this platform as a place to meet current customers, find new ones, form new relationships and expand their knowledge of the industry,” said Wynter Courmont, Vice President of Seafood at Diversified Communications USA. “It’s been exciting to feel the buzz in the exhibition halls.”

The next edition of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global will take place in Barcelona from May 6-8, 2025 Barcelona.
