Following the success of this year’s exhibition, dates have now been finalised for Scottish Skipper Expo 2023, which will be held on 12 and 13 May at the P&J Live in Aberdeen.

Planning is already underway to ensure an even bigger and better show for 2023 and organiser Mara Media has been assessing exhibitor and visitor feedback to optimise the overall experience.

From this, it has been decided that the show will be held on a Friday and Saturday as before, with many visitors stating that this is essential to enable them to complete their work and still attend the show. The opening hours will be changed to 10am to 5pm on the first day of event, with the final hour until 6pm dedicated to exhibitor networking and catch-up.  The complimentary show reception will take place at the Douglas Hotel Aberdeen on Friday 12th at 7:30pm.

Feedback from Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 was overwhelmingly positive, with exhibitors and visitors praising the new venue at the P&J Live in Aberdeen and the overall positive aura that surged through the aisles, making it a productive place to conduct business in a friendly atmosphere.

Ashley Mullenger, a visitor from Norfolk, summed-up the overall feeling by stating: “It was great to be able to meet up with people again and amazing to see all the products, innovations, and technologies on offer. The P&J Live is a great venue in a great location, and I appreciated the warm welcome given by the Mara Media staff both in the exhibition hall and at the evening event.”

Ryan Langley, an exhibitor with Hercules Hydraulics, added: “It was easily the best fishing exhibition we have undertaken, ranging from the venue to the logistics and the quality of visitors, as well as the networking opportunities offered with fellow exhibitors.”

Sharon Boyle, Commercial fishing Manager of Mara Media, said: “Visitors and exhibitors were delighted with the venue this year and we were thrilled at how successful the show was. We are eagerly anticipating Scottish Skipper Expo 2023, which will provide another great event, showcasing the very best products, equipment, and services available to the fishing industry.”
