Mara Media has launched a new fishing exhibition for the Scottish fishing and processing industry.The Scottish Skipper Expo 2011 will be held 24-25 June 2011 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.Having run and built up the Irish Skipper Expo over the past six years, Mara Media was approached by suppliers and fishermen within the Scottish fishing industry with a view to launching a new exhibition. The organiser chose Aberdeen as the location, as it places the event within a short distance of the main fishing ports.The Irish Skipper’s sales manager Sharon Boyle says: “We are delighted to draw on our years of experience in the fishing industry to put an event together that has the backing of the Scottish industry. From fishing backgrounds and having built up close relationships within the industry over the past 10 years, we are confident in running a show that will bring a great business dynamic back to the industry.”
As the UK has voted to leave the European Union with a 52 per cent majority result, EN has spoken to members of the exhibition and events industry, to gauge their initial reactions on the future of the UK and their businesses.
The exhibition and events industry is all about the power of face-to-face, the art of exhibiting and networking with old friends and new, which is why EN would like to personally invite you to attend International Confex to learn more.
More than 8,000 visitors arrived at ExCeL London on 4-6 February for the fourth edition of 100% Optical. The show featured more than 175,000 frames, catwalk performances and a comprehensive education programme.
