Participate Virtually at the China Fisheries & Seafood Expo in October 2022

China Fisheries & Seafood Expo is the most prominent tradeshow for mainland China, representing a great opportunity for Northeast US seafood suppliers to grow their seafood business in this high-demand market. Despite current travel restrictions, Northeast US seafood suppliers can participate virtually in this event by being included in Food Export–Northeast’s showcase.

Food Export’s In-Market Representative will hold calls with each participating supplier in advance of the show to discuss their company’s objectives for participation (e.g., meeting new buyers or reconnecting with previous customers). Suppliers will have the opportunity to provide company profiles and may send digital or printed materials in advance of the show to promote their brand. Food Export–Northeast’s In-Market Representative will promote participating suppliers to buyers before and during the show, and all participating suppliers will receive a detailed post-show report with leads generated for their products. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore new export opportunities in China without leaving the comfort of home this October.
