This year’s Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global in Brussels has been postponed on account of the ongoing threat of coronavirus.

Diversified Communications, organisers of Seafood Expo Global/Seafood Processing Global, announced yesterday (March 10) they were postponing the event, which was scheduled to take place on 21-23 April. New dates for the event are to be announced by March 18.

The announcement comes on the back of advice issued by the Belgian government yesterday that indoor events with more than 1000 people should be cancelled to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Due to the magnitude of the unanticipated public health and safety issues posed by the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreaks and contagion, we have no choice but to postpone the upcoming edition,” said Liz Plizga, Group Vice President, Diversified Communications.

“In order to preserve business continuity for our community, we will communicate the new 2020 dates by no later than 18 March 2020 and will post the dates on our website as well,” added Plizga.
