Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

English Skipper Expo


Established in 2013, English Skipper Expo is a specially created commercial fisheries show for the English and Welsh fishing industries.

The show was founded by Mara Media, a publishing and event management company based in Co. Donegal, Ireland.

Mara Media publishes the widely respected ‘The Skipper’ magazine, a monthly publication for the Irish and UK fishing industries.

Having established Irish Skipper Expo in 2005, and Scottish Skipper Expo , Aberdeen, in 2011, Mara Media decided to follow the success of these events,  and host an all-encompassing fishing exhibition that the English and Welsh fishing sectors would also benefit from.

The Irish Skipper Expo and Scottish Skipper Expo successfully resumed in 2022 and Mara Media are looking forward to hosting the English Skipper Expo in the near future. .

The team at Mara Media will continue to consult with exhibitors and visitors to ensure that the show fully meets their requirements.
