Scottish Skipper Expo 2020, originally scheduled for 15 and 16 May at the P & J Live arena in Aberdeen, has been postponed due to the continuing escalation of  COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Show organiser, Mara Media says its overwhelming priority is the health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and the wider public, and as such, it had no other option than to postpone the show.

Hugh Bonner, managing director of Mara Media, said: “It is with great regret that we’ve decided to postpone Scottish Skipper Expo 2020; the wellbeing of our exhibitors and visitors is paramount.

“Postponing now also brings an end to any uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors about whether the expo was going ahead on the planned dates. We value tremendously the support of everyone involved in Scottish Skipper Expo and we would like to thank them for their patience during this challenging time.”

Mara Media will now be working hard to identify a new date for Scottish Skipper Expo, and updates will be published on the show websitehttps://theskipper.ie/scottish-skipper-expo/as soon as is practicably possible.
