Show Site Expands After Surge In Sign-Ups
Thu 9th Sep 10 - 12:39

The organisers of next year's inaugural Liverpool Boat Show have had to expand the show site after a surge of interest from exhibitors.

Kings Hall is a purpose built space which will house a wide range of marine products and services.

The hall will form the centrepiece of a new show entrance that will encompass the Aqua Theatre, Dinghy Park and Club House Pavilion, as well as the main show car parks, coach drop off and pick up points.

Space is selling rapidly and exhibitors will represent a wide range of companies from all areas of the industry.

Current sign-ups for the area include the Boating Business Marine Trades Pavilion, and will house companies such as International Safety Products, ASAP Supplies Ltd, Sail Ionian, Jeckells of Wroxham and Glaslyn Marine.

"We are very pleased to be part of what could be a very successful show.  A lot of boaters in this area have been neglected and with Liverpool looking to produce a unique show, this will certainly help revive new life in the Leisure sector.  It is encouraging to see local support from the authorities and development partnerships to hopefully make this a huge success and up there with one of the best boating shows in the World."  Shaun Wigley Operations Director ASAP Supplies Ltd

David Eastwood from Glaslyn Marine said: "At last, a national boat show in the North catering for Wales, the Midlands, Merseyside and beyond all of which makes up our core customer base.  We are delighted that the whole city and beyond seem to be 100% behind this event."

Chris Haylett from Jeckells said: "Jeckells the Sailmakers are proud to be associated with the inaugural Liverpool Boat Show.  In the past we have made sails for Sir Robin Knox-Johnston who is one of the driving forces behind the show.  It's a show that has been needed for many years now."

Luke Perry, Group Sales Manager at Liverpool Boat Show organiser Marine Industry Events, said: "The Kings Hall exhibitors represent another ringing endorsement for the Liverpool Boat Show and its place in the international show calendar.  The feedback that we are getting is that our exhibitors see this as a unique opportunity to gain a significant number of new leads that they currently don't see at other UK shows.  We look forward to welcoming many more companies over the coming months."
