New Sponsor for Welsh Shows

11th May 2010
New Sponsor for Welsh Shows

Zodiac Marine & Pool, manufacturer of the Avon, Zodiac and Bombard brands of RIB's and Inflatable boats, has today confirmed sponsorship of both the South Wales and North Wales Boat Shows for 2010. ZMP will be represented by dealers at both shows with Glaslyn Marine present at the South Wales Boat Show which will take place at SA1 Swansea from Friday 18th - Sunday 20th June, and Cambrian Boats exhibiting at the North Wales Boat Show, taking place from Friday 30th of July - Sunday 1st August at The Vaynol Estate, Bangor.

The announcement means visitors to the show will be given the chance to see a full range of ZMP products through its exclusive Welsh dealerships. This will include the industry leading Avon Seasport Jet performance tenders and the superb value Bombard inflatable tenders.

 "We are very pleased to confirm that ZMP is the first company to sponsor both the North Wales and South Wales Boat Shows. ZMP will be given prime show areas at both of the shows as part of the sponsorship, giving the dealers the very best location to display this range of exceptional boats," explains Ben Sutcliffe of the show organizers.

Commenting on the announcement, Alan Morgan, Director of ZMP Recreational UK, said "We have closely followed the development of both the North Wales and South Wales Boat Shows with interest throughout the year. Our dealers have come away from previous shows with very positive results and we are therefore delighted to be returning in 2010 with even greater support. The fact that our UK offices are based in Wales makes sponsorship of both shows even more fitting."

For further information on other exhibitors and events taking place at both the shows, please visit for the North Wales Boat Show, and for the South Wales Boat Show.
