WOW! Hospitality has always been about family. Our family of restaurants has been there for the Winnipeg community for more than 25 years, entertaining, serving and hosting you during your special events and your day-to-day lives. As each of us turns our attention to what is most important—the well-being of our families—WOW! Hospitality has closed our restaurants to the public. We know if we work together now, we can keep our community’s vulnerable and the essential frontline workers safe, and soon, we’ll all be back doing the things we love.

As we adjust to a new normal, we are striving to find creative ways to help our Winnipeg family find moments of comfort in their daily lives. We will continue to keep you updated with all the new ways we can offer you a taste of WOW! in your own homes.

Portland, Maine (April 2, 2020) - Today, Diversified Communications, organizer of the annual Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America, announced the new dates for its 2020 event.  The expo will take place at the Boston Exhibition and Convention Center this September 2020, with an exhibit hall open on September 23rd and 24th, and a conference program that will start on September 22nd.

In the last few months and weeks, the seafood industry and community, along with the rest of the world, have been experiencing some of the most tumultuous, emotionally and economically challenging times. “While navigating this unprecedented situation, we know there is a need for business continuity and are committed to providing a platform that will bring back together the industry suppliers and buyers who, due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, were prevented from meeting in March as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Liz Plizga, Group Vice President, Diversified Communications.

The September dates were carefully chosen in consideration of the recent escalating situation with COVID-19, the venue availability, as well as feedback from customers and high-volume retail and foodservice Key Buyers from North America.

“It is fair to say that this year’s event will not be like any other years,” added Plizga. “However, the Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America team is dedicated to delivering a high-quality event and services that are as similar as possible to what our customers have come to expect over the years.”

The September edition will feature a solutions-driven conference program led by industry experts covering today’s most relevant topics. The exhibit hall, which will be held in Halls B and C, will highlight special programs like the New and Featured Product Showcases where buyers can identify the latest seafood product, equipment and services, innovations and trends. 

In the coming weeks, Diversified Communications and its official partners, will reach out to exhibitors, buyers and other seafood professionals to provide further details about the September event. New information will be included at seafoodexpo.com/north-america.

The Manitoba government is issuing a new public health order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of all Manitobans, Premier Brian Pallister announced today.

The chief provincial public health officer is issuing orders under The Public Health Act as approved by the minister of health, seniors and active living.  Among the measures will be in place as of 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, April 1, the following concerns the restaurant and food service industry. 

All restaurants and other commercial facilities that serve food are prohibited from serving food to customers in their premises.  This prevents eat-in dining at all facilities.  However, restaurants and other commercial facilities can prepare and serve food for delivery or takeout.  If this takes place, the operator of the restaurant must ensure that all people maintain the appropriate social distancing from other customers when picking up food.

During this time, the MRFA is opening up our emailing list to non-members and making our new Blog posts public.
