FISHERMEN from across the UK are being urged to visit the Skipper Expo show in Bristol next month, which has been developed with their interests in mind.
Around 70 exhibitors are attending the event, from September 7-8, providing an opportunity for fishermen to see some of the latest equipment and services on the market.
Highlights include boat (5m to 8m) displays, creel and potting equipment, ship yards, marine electronic equipment and trawl gear.
Engines, both inboard and outboard, will be another major feature, along with exhibiting companies covering areas such as ropes, netting, safety equipment, deck machinery, anti-fouling and shellfish holding tanks.
Sharon Boyle of show organiser Mara Media said: ‘This is the fishing industry’s show, which has been developed in close consultation with fishermen.
‘It is, therefore, vitally important that as many fishermen as possible attend the event so that we can develop it even further for future years.
‘We are delighted with the strong levels of stand bookings for Skipper Expo Int. Bristol 2017 and this will be a fantastic show for visitors with some of the latest equipment on the market today being on display.’
Skipper Expo Int. Bristol 2017 will be held at the Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol, on Thursday, September 7, and Friday, September 8. Free entry with complimentary parking and wifi on-site. Opening times: Thursday 10am to 5pm, Friday 10am to 4pm.
