England's only commercial fishing exhibition - Skipper Expo 2018




Welcome to Skipper Expo Int. Bristol

Established in 2013, Skipper Expo Int. Bristol is a specially created commercial fisheries show for the English and Welsh fishing industries.

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. Mara Media had already established Skipper Expo Int. Galway in Ireland in 2005, and Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen in 2011, and following the success of these events, decided that the English and Welsh fishing sectors would also benefit from an all-encompassing annual fisheries exhibition.

The Bristol expo, which is now being held annually at the Ashton Gate Stadium, has proved very popular with the industry and has been growing year-on-year, with there being around 80 exhibitors at the most recent event.

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.
