Coming Soon: Pacific Marine Expo
Biggest in the West
The West Coast’s largest commercial marine trade show is coming soon. From November 18th through 20th, Seattle will be hosting the Pacific Marine Expo. Virtually every type of professional who makes their living on the water will find something of interest in this show. Over 450 exhibitors will be in attendance, including builders, suppliers, equipment companies, and many others. Besides a wealth of industry information and contacts, the expo will also feature live demonstrations, contests, entertainment, and much more.
A History of Success
The 2015 expo is riding on a very successful conference last year. Exhibitors from 2014 included representatives from all areas of the marine business including boat builders, navigation, fishing gear, electronics and communications, electrical systems, propulsion, and many others. The variety of attendees was equally broad. The 2014 expo saw commercial and passenger vessel owners and operators, as well as a diverse array of engineers, architects, boat builders, seafood processors, harbormasters, and a whole host of others. A poll conducted last year demonstrated a high degree of satisfaction with the expo among both exhibitors and attendees. Over 90% of the exhibitors and the attendees stated that they met their objectives during the showcase, and over 94% said that they planned to attend or exhibit in the expo the following year.
A Full Schedule of Educational and Special Events
A number of educational events are available at the expo at no additional cost for attendees or exhibitors. Some of the educational highlights include topics from safety, regulatory issues, and business management to advancements in technology. A full schedule of the educational events can be found here. Special daily events include the Fisherman of the Year Contest, nightly happy hours, and a keynote address from Captain Keith Colburn, best known to television viewers for his work on the hit TV show, Deadliest Catch.
