This will be the 53rd edition of the Genoa International Boat Show and has undergone many changes designed to maintain its leading flagship status in the industry. The new layout has a clear focus on water and links exhibition spaces on the land with the marina areas for optimal coverage of all exhibits by visitors to the show.
The itinerary begins with a totally redesigned entrance area, to aid visitor inflow, which then leads into the new Pavilion B. There is tensile structure right after the entrance housing motorboats up to 16 metres, both locally-made and those from international manufacturers.
The exhibition space has been divided into different areas dedicated to specific exhibits to help visitors get the best out of their time at the show.
The Sea Experience area, in the Sea Pavilion, is devoted to water sports and accessories providing interactive entertainment and the possibility of participation in sea trials. There will be canoes, kayaks, technical wear, fishing equipment, diving equipment, marina and harbour equipment and boating tourism products on display. It is expected to be a winner with the young and sporty crowd.
The Power Village, in the uncovered space by the Marina 1 Square, is dedicated to marine engines (inboard/outboard and diesel and petrol), power control systems, accessories and components, fuels and lubricants.
The Boat Discovery area, on the ground floor of Pavilion B, is designed to guide potential new boat owners in making the most appropriate choices for their first boats and includes boats, engines, accessories and insurance products.
The Sailing World area, in Marina 1, is dedicated to sailing boats and catamarans while the Motorboats area, also in Marina 1 and on part of the Docks, features motorboats from 12 metres to all the way up to maxiyachts.
Lastly, there is a Tech Trade area on the upper floor of Pavilion B where one will find a world of accessories, components and electronic cruising instruments.
The food and beverage outlets have also increased, with a total of 13 now within the show grounds, offering everything from Italian cuisine, themed bars, oyster bars, seafood pavilions to desserts and sorbets.
The wireless network has also been comprehensively upgraded to give better wi-fi coverage throughout the show area for improved communications.
