Pacific Marine Expo... We're Talking Safety And SATCOM At Sea 

You won't get wet or seasick when attending the Pacific Marine Expo, November 17-19 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center, Seattle, Washington, which is the largest commercial marine tradeshow on the West Coast, that serves commercial mariners from Alaska to California. This show is recommended for commercial fishermen, and covers everything from jobs, to marketing and the importance of communications... SATCOM.

In an increasingly competitive world, commercial fleets require a communications strategy that satisfies multiple stakeholders, offers affordable broadband connections, and prepares your business for the future. Learn about the challenges and best practices in developing a winning strategy:

  • My community. My expo. November 17-19, Seattle, Washington.
    How the maritime satellite communications landscape is changing
  • What it takes to develop a strategy to suit your specific needs
  • The benefits of effective SATCOM across shoreside and shipboard applications
  • Key considerations when assessing your SATCOM needs and options 
  • Vital questions and best practices in the development of your SATCOM strategy


There will be time for Happy Hours, a Fisherman of the Year Contest, and a Seattle Kitchen Radio Show. Safety is paramount when on the sea and there will be new Safety 101—whether it involves new technologies and innovations to the classics, it's a good idea to take a refresher course with 20 minute breakout sessions. Here is the full schedule.

There will be a Pacific Marine Expo Job Fair that will take place on Saturday, November 19th from 10:00am-12:00pm in the East Hall. With the commercial fishing and marine industry thriving in the Pacific Northwest, this is a great place to connect employers with skilled talent. If you have positions open and would like information about how you can participate in the Pacific Marine Expo Job Fair, please contact Krista Demario at kdemario@divcom.com.
