Scottish Skipper Expo
13 & 14 MAY 2022

P&J LIVE EXHIBITION ARENA ABERDEEN
Now in its 10th year, Scottish Skipper Expo is Scotland’s flagship fisheries show that attracts large numbers of exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
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. It also owns the Irish Skipper Expo, a sister show to the Scottish Skipper Expo, and which in 2022 will be held in Limerick
The Scottish Skipper Expo has been so successful that the number of exhibitors has more than doubled since its inception, with there being a truly international flavour. For example, at Scottish Skipper Expo 2019, there were around 230 exhibitors from 22 different countries.
The success of the show can be attributed to the fact that the expo is a great place to do business, as well as being the ideal venue for the fishing industry to network and socialise.
Such success is confirmed by the universally positive testimonials from exhibitors and visitors alike.
The team at Mara Media has the philosophy of continually consulting with exhibitors and visitors to ensure the show fully meets their requirements.
