Northern Boat Show

The Western Boat Show covers the offshore and inland markets with the latest sailing, canal, ribs and power boats in Bristol Harbour and a land-based exhibition alongside on Bristol’s newly developed Hannover Quay. The Show is being organised by the same the organisers as the Northern Boat Show which has been highly successful in Liverpool and has rapidly become one of the UK’s major boat shows.

Bristol is one of the most easily accessible cities in the UK, with excellent road, rail, bus and air links. Bristol is ideally situated for road access by being located at the intersection of the M4 and M5 motorways. Because of Bristol’s position on the River Avon, it has been an important location for marine trade for centuries and was the second largest port in England after London. This maritime history is reflected in the Bristol Harbour Festival which has been running for over 40 years and last year involved over 240 vessels.

A comprehensive PR and marketing campaign will promote The Northern Boat Show to a targeted audience of boat buyers and boat owners as well as the huge visitor audience descending on the Waterfront.

Whatever type of boat or marine product you are marketing The Western Boat Show is the perfect place to reach existing and potential boat owners in the West of England and beyond.
