The inaugural British Marine Expo will take place on 26 & 27 March 2019 at the impressive St. Mary’s Football Stadium in Southampton. With its bright, modern, open spaces, this great venue is the perfect spot to kick off the boating season. St. Mary’s will be the first location of annual British Marine Expos that will take place across the country. Future locations will include other marine hot spots in the UK.

British Marine Expo, is set to become the associations’ flagship trade event and is sponsored by British Marine Trades Association and Superyacht UK. The Expo will feature some of British Marine’s most popular events including the Superyacht UK Technical Seminar, the Supply Chain Conference and the British Marine Trades Association Awards.
