FAQs

Can I exhibit at the event?

There are two options. We encourage local food producers and National seafood companies to be involved to showcase their products which form the Seafood Fayre. Or non-food exhibitors can arrange to display a small stand in the hall at the Seafood fayre to discuss their unique areas related to the industry. Early engagement with the organisers will enable press releases and other media activity to mention your support at the event.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample parking at The Humber Royal Hotel on the 10th October. Parking at The Pier, Cleethorpes for the conference on the 11th October is on the Central Promenade, a limited number of free parking permits will be available - one per company. Please contact the organiser to reserve.
