British Waterways Makes A Splash At The Boat Show
Thu 8th Jul 10 - 12:24

We are delighted to announce that British Waterways has agreed to invest in the inaugural Liverpool Boat Show in a deal worth half a million pounds.

The organisation, which looks after 2,200 miles of the country's canals and rivers, is, in partnership with Marine Industry Events, co-funding the £800,000 project cost to install more than 600 metres of double-width, buoyancy-enhanced pontoons for the show. These will be permanently sited along the perimeter of the Albert and Salthouse Docks to create the infrastructure for the Liverpool Boat Show in 2011 and in the future. They will help continue the development and regeneration of the city's famous waterfront.

Julie Sharman, Head of Regeneration North for British Waterways, said: "We are delighted to be working alongside the team delivering the Liverpool Boat Show 2011 - it is set to be a great success and one which we are pleased to be a part of."

"The Albert Dock is an excellent venue for national events and it's great to be able to contribute towards the continued success of an area which has become a shining example of regeneration excellence."

Rob Mackenzie, Managing Director of Marine Industry Events, added: "With an organisation like British Waterways throwing their support behind us we are in really good shape to deliver a show like no other."
