Scottish Skipper Expo 2022, which will be held at the new venue of the P&J Live arena in Aberdeen, is set to take place on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 May.

Sponsored by the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, this will be the tenth Scottish Skipper Expo in the successful series, now firmly established 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 be a strong representation from overseas exhibitors.

Sharon Boyle, commercial fishing manager for organiser 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.

“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.”

There are still spaces left for companies looking to exhibit – to find out more, contact Sharon Boyle on: 00353 868401250 or:
