26 - 28 April, Fira Barcelona Gran Via | Pavilion 3 Stand 3I601/3K801
Rome, 21 April 2022 – Tuesday 26 April will see the inauguration, under the aegis of MIPAAF, of the Italian Pavilion at Seafood Expo Global in Barcelona (26-28 April), the largest international showcase dedicated to fishing and aquaculture, which every year brings together 2,000 exhibitors from 89 countries.
The event – which in the 2019 edition attracted 29,000 visitors from more than 150 countries, including buyers and professionals from the sector – represents a unique business opportunity for the 66 exhibitors from all over Italy and the 6 Regions (Calabria, Campania, Emilia-Romagna, Puglia, Sardinia and Tuscany), who have the opportunity to promote their products, intercept new business opportunities and build connections across an international network.
Through a programme full of events, cooking demonstrations, moments of in-depth exploration and roundtables, the Italian pavilion showcases a sector of excellence made up of quality products in tune with the land, of art, of wide-ranging knowledge, of traditions and of a gastronomic culture able to combine flavour and well-being.
For the 66 businesses present, the fair thus constitutes an ideal driving force for promoting and showcasing the uniqueness of Italian fisheries products, synonymous, internationally, with freshness, quality and safety. A recognition that is the result of an ambitious journey boosted by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, which supports the supply chain in the transition towards sustainable fishing, smart and environmentally friendly aquaculture, inclusive development of the communities that depend on this work and promoting cross-sectoral maritime policies that generate savings and growth.
The event also becomes an opportunity to share good examples and talk about the future of the fisheries supply chain, where the concept of innovation is the key element for profitably combining economic and environmental sustainability, without forgetting the guarantee of high quality standards.
