Irish Skipper Expo 2020 has been rescheduled to take place on 25 and 26 March 2022 at the UL Sport Arena in Limerick, Ireland
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.
