The frozen food industry is one of the clearest examples of Vigo’s talent for business. We’re not only great at fishing and canning, we’re also national and European pioneers in the frozen fish industry; six of Vigo's companies in this sector are among the top fifteen in Spain. Vigo’s leadership in everything related to fishing is established during the celebration of the international fair Conxemar, in Ifevi, Vigo’s fairground. It is the most important frozen seafood fair in Spain and the second at a European level. It attracts so many exhibitors and entrepreneurs that the trade fair’s facilities had to be expanded.
Conxemar is held in Vigo every September.
