The 45th Sydney International Boat Show closed on a positive note, having put on a first class display of the recreational boating lifestyle for more than 60,000 visitors.
As expected, the number of visitors was less than last year, but on a positive note the 63,887 that did attend showed a strong passion for boating.
The BIA said that the last 10 years has shown that there is a direct correlation between the number of visitors to the show and the number of new vessel registrations for the year. Based on the number of new registrations for the first 6 months of 2012, the BIA was expecting fewer visitors. As such, with the visitors they did get, if the trend continues we can only assume that the second 6 months will be much better for the industry and hopefully we will see it in the results from this year’s show.
To celebrate the close of a successful event, the Boating Industry Association tonight launched a virtual tour of both the halls and marina. The tour can be seen on the shows web site http://www.sydneyboatshow.com.au/. This virtual tour will allow visitors to relive the experience from the comfort of their homes.
