Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Dates have been announced for next year’s Irish Skipper Expo 2022 and Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 commercial fishing exhibitions.

Irish Skipper Expo 2022 will be held on 25 and 26 March (Friday and Saturday) at the UL Sport Arena in Limerick, while Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 will take place on 13 and 14 May (Friday and Saturday) at the P & J Live arena in Aberdeen.

Show organiser Mara Media had recently consulted exhibitors and visitors on the expos, and the consensus was that the current two-day format, held on a Friday and Saturday, was the most suitable option.

Both expos will feature virtually every type of equipment and support service available to the commercial fishing sector, with the events providing a vitally important showcase to help reinvigorate the industry.

Sharon Boyle, commercial fishing manager for Mara Media said: “We are delighted to confirm these dates for next year. I would like to express my sincere thanks to exhibitors and the wider industry for their tremendous support during this challenging period.

“Both expos will provide the perfect opportunity for fishermen to see at first hand the latest products and services available to the fishing industry and offer businesses an invaluable marketing platform to promote their ranges.”
