who we are
The organisers of the Northern Boat Show launched the Western Boat Show in 2017 at the heart of the Bristol Harbour Festival and will be held in Bristol again from 20 to 22 July in 2018. 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.”
