We love the Seahawks, but this year our worship and sacrifice didn’t pay off.

The team is hosting a home game on what would usually be the opening day for Pacific Marine Expo 2018. As much as we’d love to host the show while a game is playing, the stadium security protocols won’t allow it.

The result is that Pacific Marine Expo will instead run the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving — Nov. 18-20.

What is not changing is our commitment to offering the best of the U.S. maritime industry in one location. Expo 2018 will have all the show specials, must-attend conferences, contests and a show floor packed with everything you need to run your business in 2019.

“Last year’s Expo featured more than 500 exhibitors and over 6,000 visitors from 40 states and 24 countries,” said Denielle Christensen, event director of Pacific Marine Expo. “With the continued growth and strength of the West Coast fishing and workboat industries, we expect another outstanding year in 2018.”

Attendee registration for Pacific Marine Expo will open in June.
