Fish expo has new name and locationPosted on
The Fish Expo Atlantic trade show was renamed the Commercial Marine Expo and is relocating from Providence, R.I., to a waterfront facility in New Bedford, Mass.
The 2010 event will be held June 9-10 at the State Pier in New Bedford’s working waterfront.
“In 2008, we successfully broadened the scope of the show to embrace all commercial marine businesses – our new name more accurately reflects the direction our exhibitors and attendees want us to take the show,” show director Ted Hugger said in a statement.
Commercial fishing and fish processing will continue to play a major role in the show, as will tug and barge operations, fire, police and harbor security, military, ferry, freight and port operations.
