2019 London Boat Show Cancelled

 
British Marine, which organises and owns the London Boat Show, has announced that the 2019 Show, will not now take place.

This decision was made after independent research showed there was insufficient support froma large proportion of the marine industry to the London Boat Show with its current format, duration and location.

Visitor research also showed that consumer satisfaction of the 2018 Show was below acceptable industry standards.

Sales activity and support for the London Boat Show is in contrast with British Marine’s TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show, which attracts close to 500 exhibitors and more than 106,000 visitors and has the support of title sponsorTheYachtMarket.com.

The 2018 event is significantly ahead in terms of ticket sales and exhibitor sign ups compared to this time last year.

TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show 2018, running over 10 days from 14-23 September, celebrates its 50th year with a host of special events and activities taking place.

British Marine says making the decision to put the London Boat Show on hold now for 2019 enables the organisation to look at alternative options.
