Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America is the largest seafood trade exposition in North America. In 2014, 20,409 buyers, suppliers, media and other seafood-industry professionals from 100 countries and over 1,100 exhibitors attended the exposition to meet face to face, discover new products and grow their businesses. Here buyers find the newest fresh, frozen, and packaged products and processing equipment, stay on top of emerging consumer trends, meet suppliers, and build important relationships to grow their business and increase seafood sales.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
