Cannes Boat Show to Go Ahead in September

The organisers of France's 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival, Europe’s largest in-water event, have confirmed that this year’s show will go ahead as planned from September 8-13.

The news was confirmed today by the trade journal, International Boat Industry.

Exhibition staff have been working remotely to ensure the success of the show’s 43rd edition that has grown to become a major player on the boat show circuit.

The show is popular with the Irish Marine industry including brokers MGM Boats of Dun Laoghaire Harbour and BJ Marine of Greystones Harbour in County Wicklow and Crosshaven Boatyard in Cork Harbour, Key Yachting also of Cork and X Yachts on Dublin Bay.

“The aim is to open the Yachting Festival 2020 in such a way as to allow the event to be held in the best possible conditions and in full compliance with the protection of exhibitors and visitors,” Reed said in today’s statement.
