Hosted by Mara Media, organiser of the successful Galway (Ireland) and Aberdeen (Scotland) international fishing expos, Skipper Expo Int. Bristol will be a comprehensive fisheries showcase for English and Welsh fishing communities. It is also anticipated that the expo will attract interest from fishermen and industry related companies from northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Mara Media’s current shows are firmly established in the fishing industry calendar with Galway heading into its 10th successive year and the Aberdeen expo now in its third year.

Sharon Boyle, event sales manager, said the new Skipper Expo Int. Bristol is being launched following widespread demand from the English and Welsh fishing industries.

“The expansion of our fishing expos to include a show in England is a natural progression for Mara Media. The fishing industry has once again put their trust in us and asked us to organise and run a show in England. Companies are already booking their stands for the show and we are very much looking forward to repeating the success of the Galway and Aberdeen events.”

Skipper Expo Int. Bristol will take place on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th October 2013 in the Marriott City Centre Hotel in Bristol.
