Attendance jumps at new-look London Boat Show
- Mon, 17 Jan 2011
The new-look Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show closed yesterday, with organisers celebrating a 7% jump in attendance over 2010 to 109,778.
When visitors to The Outdoors Show, which ran in tandem with the last four days of the boat show, are added, that figure rises to 140,164.
Andrew Williams, MD of National Boat Shows, said: "We have worked extremely hard to create a 10-day event that our exhibitors would be proud of and the response we have had from exhibitors and visitors is that the ‘wow' factor is certainly back.
"The stunning new east entrance giving a glimpse of the pool and some of the exciting action has given visitors a hint of what is to come before they have even walked through the ticket barriers."
