5 reasons to be at World Seafood (SIFSE) Shanghai this year

Shanghai, the world’s biggest city, is China’s seafood gateway. Import volumes of key products are rising, new facilities are being built to handle live produce, and e-commerce is making it easier to buy and sell seafood there.

In the middle of this frenzied fish-related activity sits World Seafood (SIFSE) Shanghai. For over a decade, the event has been the place to be to connect with China’s leading fish and seafood buyers and suppliers.

The show is back for 2017 - just over a month away on August 19-21 – and there are loads of great reasons why you should be there.

At World Seafood Shanghai, Seafood Tasting Sessions provide a platform for national pavilions and exhibitors to showcase their cuisines to the event’s visitors. For buyers, this allows you to make more informed decisions on who to do business with after the show’s conclusion.
