As Motor Boat & Yachting reports, Informa Exhibitions will return to the St Katherine Docks venue that has hosted the event for the last five years — with Fairline, Princess and Sunseeker among planned exhibitors from 9-12 May (dates to be confirmed).
And the new show-runners have the backing of Southampton Boat Show organisers British Marine whose own London Boat Show, originally scheduled for next month at the city’s ExCeL, was cancelled over the summer due to “insufficient support”.
Informa promises to retain the boutique nature of the St Katherine Dock event. “We’re not looking to compete with the Southampton Boat Show, this will be a focussed event aimed at the luxury end of the market,” said Andrew Williams, president of maritime for Informa Exhibitions.
