The inaugural British Marine Expo will take place on 26 and 27 March 2019 at the impressive St. Mary's Football Stadium in Southampton.

Future locations will include other marine hot spots across 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.
