Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 (13 and 14 May), which will be held at the exciting new venue of the P & J Live arena in Aberdeen, looks set to be another fantastic showcase for the commercial fishing sector.

Sponsored by the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF), this will be the 10th Scottish Skipper Expo in the successful series, having now firmly established itself as one of Europe’s most important commercial fishing exhibitions.

The impressive line-up of companies attending includes many new exhibitors and will cover areas such as shipyards, steel fabricators, ships’ painters, deck machinery, trawl gear, and fish catching and navigational software. Boat displays will be another key feature of the event, and as in previous years, there will a strong representation from overseas exhibitors, ensuring that visitors can browse amongst a vast array of fishing equipment and support service suppliers.

Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 had 230 exhibitors from 22 countries across the world

Sharon Boyle, Commercial Fishing Manager for Mara Media said: “The P & J Arena has already held several successful events over the last few months and is now gearing up for Scottish Skipper Expo 2022. After a challenging couple of years, Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 provides the perfect platform for the fishing industry to showcase the latest new equipment and services.

“We are currently in the process of reconfirming bookings with exhibitors, and taking new bookings, and we are delighted with the positive response we have received.

“I would like to thank the loyalty and patience shown by our exhibitors in supporting the expo, and I am thrilled that they will once more have an exciting event to meet existing and new customers.

Scottish Skipper Expo is always a great place for networking and securing business for the year ahead

“The new P & J Live exhibition arena offers more space, better facilities and an enhanced overall visitor experience compared to the previous venue. Our last expo in 2019 was a tremendous success, with a sell-out attendance of 230 exhibitors from 22 different countries.

“Scottish Skipper Expo 2022 will be a great place to do business, as well as providing the ideal venue for the fishing industry to network and socialise.”
