Barry 2019-08-09

The Sydney International Boat Show closed after five glorious sunny days at the International Convention Centre Sydney and the Show’s purpose-built marina on Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour.

Visitors to the show were treated to a broad offering that highlighted the diversity of recreational boating, and the ease by which people of all ages and abilities can participate.

Darren Vaux, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd (BIA), owners and organisers of the event, said “Boating appeals and is accessible to people from all walks of life. This year’s Boat Show has demonstrated that. We’re very pleased with the diversity of the offering and the quality of the displays for our guests to enjoy.”

Visitor numbers were on par with last year. Julie Balzano visiting with a delegation from the USA’s National Marine Manufacturers Association, described the show’s attendance as “solid”.

Daily attendance was: Thursday 7,158, Friday 11,840, Saturday 17,888, Sunday 18,033 and the very important final trading day received 5,231 visitors. Total visitors for 2019 were 60,149, an increase of 396 people across the 5 days of the show, compared to 2018.

The BIA also expressed its gratitude to all the event partners, and particularly to the Show’s Partner in Safety, Transport for NSW. 2020 show dates have already been locked-in for Thursday 30th July to Monday 3rd August.
