Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

English Skipper Expo


Established in 2013, Skipper Expo Int. Bristol 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.

Mara Media had already established Skipper Expo Int. Galway in Ireland in 2005, and Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen in 2011, and following the success of these events, decided that the English and Welsh fishing sectors would also benefit from an all-encompassing annual fisheries exhibition.

The next English Skipper Expo has been postponed and will be held at a later date.

There is also a lot of uncertainty in the industry at the moment and it is vital to find a fit-for-purpose venue and location for this event that meets the requirements of the fishing sector.

The team at Mara Media has the philosophy of continually consulting with exhibitors and visitors to ensure the show fully meets their requirements.
