Back to Bristol for Skipper Expo
Following consultation with the fishing industry, Mara Media is relocating its successful English based Skipper Expo to Bristol this year in a move that will boost the show by providing a more convenient location as well as offering excellent exhibiting and visitor facilities.
Skipper Expo Int. Bristol 2017 will take place at the Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol, on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September.
Ashton Gate Stadium home of Bristol City F.C. and Bristol Rugby, and which is located in the South West of the city, has very recently undergone a major redevelopment. The modern new venue features a large sports arena with fantastic on site facilities, including free parking, and wi-fi.
Bristol has excellent transport and communication links, including an airport and train station, and is within convenient driving distance of many key English and Welsh fishing ports. There is also a wide selection of hotels to suit all budgets

Sharon Boyle of Mara Media said: “In making the decision to relocate this show, we were in the very fortunate position to be guided by the industry who gave us advice on preferred location and timing. We also had to take on board availability of the venue due to their commitments to sports events.
“We wish to thank everyone who took the time to assist us in planning this new event. We believe the new location will enhance the ease of access whilst the timing of the show better reflects predicted fishing activity, making it more convenient for visitors.
“We are really excited to be working on this show - see you there.”
