Strong Surge of Interest for 2014 Skipper Expo

10 January 2014

SCOTLAND, UK - A large number of exhibitors have already signed up for the Skipper Expo Int. Aberdeen 2014 commercial fisheries show, putting the event on a firm footing for another successful year.

According to Sharon Boyle of organiser Mara Media, the number of previous exhibitors who have signalled their intention to attend the 2014 expo has been particularly encouraging.

“It has been quite amazing the number of companies who have exhibited before and who have now signed up again,” she said. “This is really encouraging as it provides a clear signal that attending the show before has been worthwhile for their businesses and they are keen to offer further support to the event.”

One such repeat exhibitor to the Aberdeen expo is Buckie based lubricant distributor Commercial Oils, part of Certas Energy, who will also be one of the sponsors of the highly popular seafood buffet.

The company’s Diane Campbell, said: “The Aberdeen expo is a great event for us because it provides the perfect platform to meet with existing and new customers. We have been delighted by how useful the show is to our business and we are looking forward tremendously to attending the 2014 event.”

Among the new exhibitors attending will MarShip UK, who will be demonstrating their Diesel Fuel Purifier for removing water, contaminates and fuel bugs. Peter Weide of MarShip said: “We believe the Aberdeen expo will provide an excellent opportunity for us to showcase the services we offer the fishing industry. The venue is in a perfect location, right on the doorstep of one of the main fishing areas in Scotland.”

The 2014 expo will be held in the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre on 30 and 31 May and with demand for stand space anticipated to be high, Mara Media is urging interested companies to book early.
