The second St George’s Marine Expo will be bigger and better as it rides the crest of an America’s Cup wave, organisers promised yesterday.

Ray Lambert, the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation’s development officer for St George, said: “We have a lot of discussions to have — the BEDC is working with America’s Cup Bermuda so we can have an America’s Cup focus in the year ahead.

“Exactly what we’re going to do is hard to say but it’s a great opportunity to highlight the event in many ways.”

But Mr Lambert said: “The event is going to be bigger — last year was a great start and we’re really pleased by the support from the businesses and organisations that participate.

“We think many of them will be back and we’re expecting more of them to join in as well.”

The one-day event, sponsored by oil company Rubis Energy Bermuda, is scheduled to take place at Ordnance Island in the historic former capital on Sunday, April 23.
