The Earls Court boat show is to return in 2021.
The show – albeit virtual – will take place under the name of UK Boat Show, offering visitors the chance to visit stands, chat to exhibitors live, watch demonstrations, take part in webinars and do virtually everything that can be done at a physical show – except meet up at the Guinness stand.
It is organised by life-long sailor and virtual technology specialist Andy Beharrell and Beryl Chalmers, former Cruising Association general manager.
“All the top boat and equipment brands, big and small, have jumped at the chance to be part of the first virtual London boat show,” said Beryl.
“In the current climate we are all looking for the best way to get products directly in front of our customers. With everyone now much more familiar with online technologies, there has never been a better opportunity to talk directly to your existing and potential customers.
Join us for the most cost-effective and efficient marketing opportunity in years.”
UK Boat Show is a social enterprise and the event will be non-profit-making.
Profits from the show will be divided between Sailability (sailing for disabled people), marine conservation charities and sailing as rehabilitation charities.
The show will take place from January 7 – 10 2021. Tickets are available from ukboatshow.co.uk
