The Scottish Skipper Expo has confirmed it will return for a second edition next year at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).

Although exact dates have not been confirmed, the organiser told EN the show, organised by Republic of Ireland-based Mara Media, will take place in June 2012.
 
The launch show ran from 24 to 25 June at the AECC.
 
Mara Media’s first UK show, the Scottish Skipper Expo was to run in competition with QD Events’ Fishing Expo 2011 at the SECC in Glasgow, which was subsequently postponed.
 
“We built up a base in Ireland and a lot of people from UK companies used to come to our show in Galway,” Mara Media MD Hugh Bonner told EN. “We got to know them and through our magazine The Skipper we got a broader picture of the international fishing scene.”
 
The inaugural edition brought 100 exhibitors and around 2,500 visitors, unaudited.
 
“We’re looking at making it larger and more international next year. We want to grow it but we have to establish the show first,” said Bonner.
