Skipper Expo Galway 2015 Expected to be a Record Breaker

11 February 2015

IRELAND - Over 110 companies will be exhibiting at Skipper Expo Int. Galway 2015 on 6 and 7 March 2015 – the biggest exhibitor attendance ever and confirmation of the important place this flagship fisheries show holds in the industry calendar.

Sponsored by BIM, this year’s 11th anniversary Galway event in Ireland is shaping up to be the best ever, thanks to the huge amount of interest from both exhibitors and visitors. Indeed, such has been the demand for stand space that two additional rooms have been secured at the event venue at the Galway Bay Hotel to accommodate this extra surge in interest from exhibitors. As well as from all over Ireland, visitors will be attending from the UK and beyond.

Star attractions will include boat displays, pool demos and the superb exhibitors’ seafood buffet. There will be something to interest every visitor, thanks to the vast range equipment and service suppliers covering all sectors of the fishing industry.

Sharon Boyle of show organiser Mara Media said: “We have been overwhelmed by the huge interest in Skipper Expo Int. Galway 2015 and it promises to be a fantastic event. The record number of exhibitors underlines the dynamism and innovation that lies at the heart of our fishing industry.”

Skipper Expo Int. Galway 2015 will be held on 6 and 7 March 2015 at the Galway Bay Hotel, Galway.

Opening times, 10am to 5pm on Friday 6 March, and 10am to 4pm on Saturday 7 March. Entry is free.
