The Commercial Marine Expo, a regional B2B trade show serving commercial marine and commercial fishing markets on the Atlantic seaboard, will return June 12–13, 2013 to Virginia at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.

The expo rotates annually between Virginia and New Bedford, Mass.

The Port of Hampton Roads is the largest port complex in the United States, encompassing Norfolk, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk and Virginia Beach.

The expo brings marine buyers and sellers together in a business-to-business environment in the Mid-Atlantic commercial marine industries. It's an opportunity for the industry’s leading suppliers and manufacturers to showcase new products and technology before this audience of hard-to-reach coastal and blue-water maritime professionals over two days.

For the first time, the event will be held in the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Also new for 2013, the CME Boat Pavilion — featuring commercial-grade vessels of all types and sizes — debuts on the show floor in the heart of the main exhibit hall.
