The 16th Irish Skipper Expo
Now in its 16th year, Irish Skipper Expo 2022 which will be held in Limerick, is Ireland’s flagship fisheries show that attracts large numbers of exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
Previously known as Skipper Expo Int. Galway, the success of the event and its rapid expansion over the years has resulted in the show moving to the UL Sport Arena in Limerick for 2022 under the new name of Irish Skipper Expo.
UL Sport Arena, based in the grounds of the University of Limerick, will hold all the exhibitors in one spacious hall, enabling more and even bigger stands, providing a much better overall visitor experience. A large outside display area located adjacent to the visitor entrance will offer an opportunity to showcase much larger products and boats.
The venue offers many other benefits, including onsite catering and bar facilities, its ease of accessibility and excellent car parking facilities. There is an excellent road network to UL, which is located just off the M7, and Shannon Airport is only 35 kilometres from the show venue, from where there is an excellent range of scheduled flights.
The show was founded by Mara Media, a publishing and event management company based in Annagry in Co. Donegal, Ireland. Mara Media publishes the widely respected ‘The Skipper’ magazine, a monthly publication for the Irish and UK fishing industries.
The success of the Irish Skipper Expo has led to the creation in 2011 of the Scottish Skipper Expo, which is held at the new P & J Live exhibition arena in Aberdeen.
The Skipper Expos have gone from strength to strength due their popularity with exhibitors and visitors from Ireland and beyond. The success of the Irish Skipper Expo can be attributed to the fact that it is a great place to do business, as well as being the ideal venue for the fishing industry to network and socialise.
Such success is confirmed by the universally positive testimonials from exhibitors and visitors alike. The team at Mara Media has the philosophy of continually consulting with exhibitors and visitors to ensure the show fully meets their requirements.
