About Seafood Expo North America 

SENA is the first major international seafood trade show of the year. It takes place from 12 to 14 March 2023 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.  

The event is North America’s largest seafood trade show. It attracts seafood buyers from every market category including retail, foodservice and processing. Suppliers from over 50 countries are expected to exhibit at the show. 

About the UK seafood pavilion

The UK seafood pavilion is located at stand 2765, on one of the main thoroughfares at the show. We are across the aisle from the Seafood from Scotland pavilion, creating a strong UK seafood presence at this important event. 

The pavilion will provide an open communal lounge for attending UK companies to meet existing clients, to build new businesses relationships and to gain a richer understanding of the USA market. 

Chef CJ Jackson will be tantalising the crowds in the pavilion’s demonstration kitchen and sampling zone. She will be showcasing the fantastic seafood the UK has to offer. We are looking for UK businesses to donate produce to help us do that.

Opportunities for UK seafood businesses  

The communal meeting facility on the UK seafood pavilion at the show provides the perfect venue for conducting business meetings. Representatives from Seafish, Defra and the Department for Business and Trade will be on hand to help you to understand the US market and to help forge those all-important connections. 

On the evening of the 12 March, we will be co-hosting a 'Festival of Flavour’ at the British Consulate General's residence in Boston. UK seafood businesses will have the opportunity to attend the event, so please let us know if you’re able to join us. 

We also have two opportunities for UK seafood businesses to showcase products during SENA 2023. We’d love to hear from businesses interested in donating samples of their seafood products to the ‘Festival of Flavour’ as well as to the UK pavilion’s demonstration kitchen.
