At Seafood Expo Asia the future of the seafood industry – Anticipation is high for the 11th edition of Seafood Expo Asia, which will open its doors from 11-13 September at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. This year, the event features a high-level conference programme and the addition of the Seafood Excellence Asia Awards, which will recognise the best new seafood products presented at the show.
With more than 350 exhibitors from 40 countries, this will be the largest edition of Seafood Expo Asia in its history. The return to Singapore, following a presence event in 2022, underlines the city’s crucial role as a trading hub in Asia Pacific.
“Singapore is a long-standing trade hub in the Asia Pacific region. This strategic location allows the event to bring together experts from across the seafood industry to address industry challenges,”
said Wynter Courmont, Vice President of Diversified Communications.
A series of workshops, panel discussions and lectures will take place throughout the show and a wide range of topics will be addressed, from seafood consumption trends in Asia to sustainability and innovation in the supply chain.
One of the most eagerly anticipated sessions will cover the application of artificial intelligence in the fishing industry and will be led by Eric Enno Tamm, CEO and co-founder of This Fish. Tamm will explore how artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision and other technologies are already revolutionising the fishing industry and offer perspectives on the future.
Joey Goh and Usmawati Anggita of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) will lead a panel on growing trends in seafood consumption in Asia, using data from an independent GlobeScan survey.
The event, as the organisers point out, will highlight key industry themes across Asia, including seafood innovation, the role of artificial intelligence in seafood processing, sustainability, advances in aquaculture, and changes in consumption patterns.
In addition, Seafood Expo Asia will present for the first time the Seafood Excellence Awards Asia that will recognise the most innovative products presented at the expo with three winners in the retail and hotel, restaurant and catering (HORECA) categories.
These events will be held in the new, larger venue of the expo, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, which offers an 84% larger exhibition area than last year’s edition.
Seafood Expo Asia 2023 promises to offer a preview of the future of the Asian seafood industry, and is eagerly awaited by industry professionals from around the world.
