Northern Boat Show

who we are


The Northern Boat Show was launched in 2015 and is now in its third year and moving to new dates in 2017 to coincide with the International Mersey River Festival on 23 to 25 June 2017.

The organisers of the Northern Boat Show are launching a Western Boat Show at the heart of the Bristol Harbour Festival to be held in Bristol from 21 to 23 July in 2017. Endorsed by Bristol Harbour Festival, this three-day consumer boat show will put sailing boats, power boats and marine products, systems and services in front of serious boat buyers and more than 250,000 visitors to the Festival.

Richard Milbourn, Event Director of the new show said, “There are huge similarities with our Liverpool Show including the ability to cater for both the inland and offshore markets and by being part of a huge maritime festival it makes it a real attraction to visitors. We have a proven track record of launching and running events in this market and Bristol is a perfect location.” Milbourn added, “because it reaches an audience that is far away from the established boat shows and we’re looking forward to capturing another untapped market.”
