Sydney International Boat Show 2014
Published: Wednesday, 06 August 2014
The Sydney International Boat Show attracted a diverse group of visitors seeking information, products and services relating to the boating lifestyle. Being the 47th event, show organisers were keen to ensure that new products and technologies were showcased.
More that 150 luxury and prestige boats were moored at the marina at Darling Harbour. At Glebe Island, visitors had over 700 boats to peruse, as well as all manner of accessories, marine electronics and safety gear.
Clear blue skies every day of the show made it an even more pleasant experience.
“The positive presentation of the boating lifestyle at the Sydney International Boat Show this year is a credit to the exhibitors who have engaged at the event with the audience who came to learn, explore and buy,” says Roy Privett, General Manager of the Boating Industry Association. “There have been challenges, and it is important that we recognise and acknowledge them. But we are very pleased with the results and will walk away ready to make the event even better next year.”
This year, visitors to the show were ferried between the two display locations with the on-water displays remaining at Darling Harbour and the indoor exhibits installed at the interim Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island. The ferry shuttle was an added bonus with guests experiencing the beauty of the harbour first-hand.
The Sydney International Boat Show returns to Darling Harbour and Glebe Island July 30-Aug 3, 2015.
