Highlights from this year’s Marine Expo 2018 include the return of Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences’ [BIOS] 170 foot research vessel Atlantic Explorer, which will be offering guided tours throughout the day.

Guests can also look forward to a ‘Marine & Materiality’ Art Exhibition, which makes a link between the physical elements of the Expo [such as boats, engines and equipment] and the material elements of creative expression [such as paper, mixed media and photography].

Launched in 2016, the Marine Expo was created to showcase the many businesses, organizations and opportunities involved in Bermuda’s Marine Industry. The organising committee is made up of representatives from the BEDC, Bermuda Yacht Services and the Corporation of St. George.

Ray Lambert, BEDC’s Economic Development Officer for St. George’s, said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to showcase their marine based products and services and for members of the public to come out and have a great day of fun by the water.

“In addition to providing a boost to restaurants and businesses in the area, the Marine Expo offers entertainment, demonstrations and a college and career corner, which people of all ages can enjoy.”
