10th International Seafood Summit – Save the Date! Published:  27 October, 2011

The Seafood Summit is an annual event bringing together global representatives from the seafood industry and conservation community for in-depth discussions, presentations and networking around the issue of sustainable seafood.

The goal of the Summit is to foster dialogue and partnerships that lead to a seafood marketplace that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. The Summit, which has traditionally been held in Europe and North America, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2012 and venture into Asia for the first time. In addition to the core programme there will be a series of unique field trips and topical workshops before and after the summit.

Why Hong Kong?Hong Kong is the key finance and business center in Asia. In addition to being the primary seafood trading hub in the region and having many well-known seafood markets which sell fish from all around Asia, Hong Kong is also an entry point to mainland China and is readily accessible from destinations around Asia and the rest of the world.

Sponsorship OpportunitiesThe Seafood Summit is a not-for-profit event and Seafood Choices strives to keep registration fees as possible low and the event accessible to all stakeholders, which is only possible because of the generous support of corporate sponsors and foundations.
