An Introduction to the Pacific Marine Expo
The Pacific Marine Expo is an annual event held in The Emerald City of Seattle. It serves all aspects of the maritime industry including boat builders, commercial fishermen, seafood processors, and all types of commercial vessel owners. The event will take place at:
CenturyLink Field Event Center
800 Occidental Ave South
Seattle, WA 98134
Attending the Pacific Marine Expo can help you pick up tips on regulatory matters, technological advancements, and safety education. Plus, you also get to experience live demos, check out the Fisherman of the Year Contest, and enjoy the beer garden.
Who is Attending the Event?
One of the most impressive aspects of this yearly expo is that it attracts more than 5,000 visitors and over 500 exhibitors. Attendees and exhibitors from Alaska to California come to the show to find new innovative products and stay up to date with industry best-practices.
Organizers expect representatives from 40 states and more than three dozen countries at this gathering that showcases the best of the U.S. maritime industry.
What Can You Expect from the Pacific Marine Expo 2018?
This year’s Pacific Marine Expo will kick off on Sunday, November 18th, three days later than its usual dates. However, many anticipate this event will be one of the best so far thanks to a variety of events that include job fairs, happy hours, and the anticipated Alaska Hall.
More Than 450 Exhibitors
Known as the largest event of its kind in the West Coast, the expo will see more than 500 exhibitors who will be eager to showcase their products and solutions. From bow to stern, you’ll find everything any fisherman, processor or fishing vessel will ever need.
Education Sessions and Product Demonstrations
Like any other industry, technology in the maritime industry is advancing at a fast pace. This means new safety standards, techniques, and innovative products. The Pacific Marine Expo of 2018 offers a great chance to stay on top of significant changes through education sessions, which are often hosted by experts or the manufacturers themselves. Additionally, there will be live, on-stage demos, and even interactive sessions with keynote speakers that help shape the industry.
Fisherman of the Year Contests
No fishing expo is complete without entertainment and there’s nothing more suitable than a Fisherman of the Year Contest. With three different categories, winners compete in a series of competitions until one comes out victorious, claiming a cash prize and the coveted title.
The event will also feature an industry bookstore so you can brush up time-tested techniques and broaden your knowledge through reading.
Live Shows and Entertainment
With live presentations by the Fisher Poets and a taping of the Seattle Kitchen Radio Show, this year’s Pacific Marine Expo will be buzzing with entertainment.
The Alaska Hall, introduced with great success in 2017, is back in action and it will be the site of the daily Beer Garden – a great chance to enjoy a beer with others that share your passion.
