ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA to run parallel to leading seafood show

Singapore/Berlin, 20 May 2020 – ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is to run parallel to SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA on 18-20 November 2020 at Singapore Expo in what is a further vote of confidence for major trade meetings in the perishables business in Asia at the end of 2020.

“Our co-location demonstrates the importance of face-to-face trade shows as the world emerges from this global pandemic and it also underlines the relevance of Singapore as a preferred location for event organisers around the world,” says Will Wollbold, Commercial Director of Global Produce Events (GPE), which organises ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA.

“Like our own event,  SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA is a consolidated trade show for the perishable food segment in Asia and explains why we see strong synergies between the two trade events that can benefit all our exhibitors and trade attendees.” explains Wollbold. “Industry groups and country pavilions at both shows can meet with key retail buyers and food service operators from across the perishable category and, furthermore, key exhibitors like cool chain logistics operators as well as some machinery suppliers can also find potential clients at both shows.”

The organisers of SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA are very pleased with the new arrangement. “We are thrilled to collaborate with ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA in delivering a safe and healthy forum for the perishable food sector,” says Liz Plizga, Group Vice President of Diversified Communications, which organises the leading seafood trade show.

“SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA and ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA share the same aspiration of providing business continuity to the retail and foodservice sector in the Asian market,” continued Plizga. “Together the events provide a convenient one-stop sourcing location for international buyers in Asia looking for global suppliers of all types of seafood, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.”

SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA is a platform for seafood companies that supply all types of seafood globally, including importers and exporters, resellers, distributors, processors, manufacturers and wholesalers as well as seafood industry service providers.

ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA and SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA are to take place in adjacent halls in Singapore Expo’s extensive trade show complex on 18-20 November 2020: ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is to occupy Halls 3, 4, 5 and 6, and SEAFOOD EXPO ASIA will occupy Hall 2. The co-location will allow visitors convenient access to both events. Combined ticketing will also be made available at special rates.
