Not yet, but it's coming...

Here is a press release just received about a possible Liverpool Boat Show:

National Boat Shows (NBS), organiser of the London and Southampton Boat Shows, has been exploring the prospect of putting on a brand new boat show in Liverpool. However, despite best efforts by all parties involved, a suitable show site that would deliver the necessary requirements is not available for a launch in 2008.

Positively, research from public and marine companies suggests that a Liverpool Boat Show would be a welcome addition to the UK’s boating calendar and NBS is continuing to research the project.

James Gower, Director of Marketing at National Boat Shows said: “We are still very interested in bringing a world-class Boat Show to Liverpool. However, to make it the best-possible Show we are unfortunately unable to launch next year.

“We are currently researching various location options for the future. We’ve been delighted with the warm response we’ve received from the City and official bodies, and look forward to working with them again soon. By allowing more time we hope to create a fantastic Show for Liverpool and the wider region.”

For boating fans keen to see the latest from the marine world, the Southampton Boat Show runs from 14-23 September 2007 and the London Boat Show at ExCeL takes place from 11-20 January 2008. For more information visit www.southamptonboatshow.com or www.londonboatshow.com.
