In the dark days of January, with Christmas a distant memory, the London Boat Show arrives to inspire, intrigue and provide exciting business opportunities. Over 300 exhibitors are booked to showcase their products and services, including Beneteau, Sunseeker, Pantaenius and IMP, and visitors can expect national and global launches from industry leaders.
The 64th edition of the show is already attracting a broader audience than ever before, due to its new format which is incorporating both the brand-new Boating & Watersports Holiday Show and Bespoke London, where premium brands will be on display.
The Boating & Watersports Holiday Show is set to highlight the diversity and accessibility of water-based excursions, whether on the open ocean or inland waterways, alongside the latest water sports gear.
Meanwhile, hands-on exhibits such as The Legends Theatre and Practical Boating Theatre will provide expert advice, live and practical demonstrations plus the chance to see, hear and meet the legends of the sailing world.
In combination with the chance to network and consolidate business ties, and the hint of luxury delivered by the stunning yachts on display, the show's iconic Black & White bar, and Bespoke London's champagne bar, the London Boat Show 2018 is decidedly the New Year celebration to thrill all members of the yachting industry.
