05 December 2013

SCOTLAND, UK - The Scottish Fishermen’s Federation is throwing its support behind Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen 2014 commercial fisheries show.

The Scottish Fishermen’s Federation (SFF) has confirmed that it will sponsor the Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen commercial fisheries show on 30 and 31 May 2014 in a move that highlights the strong industry support for the event.

Bertie Armstrong, chief executive of the SFF, said the Aberdeen show was now firmly established in the industry calendar and provided a vital showcase for the Scottish fishing sector.

“The SFF was the official sponsor of the 2013 expo, which proved a big success, and we are delighted to continue our support for the 2014 event,” he said.

“The organiser, Mara Media, has developed a great show which appeals greatly to fishermen from every corner of Scotland.”

Sharon Boyle of Mara Media said: “We are grateful to the SFF for their continuing sponsorship for the show, which provides a clear signal of the strength of support within the Scottish industry for this event.”

The 2014 expo will be held in the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre and with demand for stand space anticipated to be high, Mara Media is urging interested companies to book early.
