Barcelona Boat Show shakes up (10 May 2012)

Organiser of the Barcelona International Boat Show has announced changes to this year’s edition of the show. Port Vell will be the only venue for both the on-water and on-land exhibitions. In addition, the event will be held from 26 to 30 September, instead of the previously announced dates of November.
Changes have been made to make it easier for buyers and enthusiasts to visit the event. The move, which also aims to help boost the sector, responds to the outcome of a report that concluded that, given the current complex climate in the Spanish nautical sector’s, the model that best combines the possibility of attracting more buyers with the need to adjust the cost of participation for exhibitors is to concentrate the show in Port Vell, and for five days instead of the usual nine. As a result, the Barcelona show will be in line with the format used by other European shows, such as Cannes and La Rochelle in France, Southampton in the UK, and Genoa in Italy. (, 10 May 2012)
