Marine / Scottish Skipper Expo 2020 postponed

THE SCOTTISH Skipper Expo 2020 has been postponed due to the continuing escalation of the coronavirus.

The expo, originally scheduled for 15 and 16 May at the P & J Live arena in Aberdeen, has proved popular with many Shetlanders involved in the fishing and marine trades.

Show organiser Mara Media said its overwhelming priority is the health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and the wider public, and as such, it had no other option than to postpone the show.

Mara Media managing director Hugh Bonner said: “It is with great regret that we’ve decided to postpone Scottish Skipper Expo 2020; the well being of our exhibitors and visitors is paramount.

“Postponing now also brings an end to any uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors about whether the expo was going ahead on the planned dates.

“We value tremendously the support of everyone involved in Scottish Skipper Expo and we would like to thank them for their patience during this challenging time.”

Mara Media is now working on a new date for Scottish Skipper Expo, and updates will be published on the show website – https://theskipper.ie/scottish-skipper-expo/ – “as soon as is practicably possible”.
