Last Update: November 3rd, 2017
The Liverpool Boat Show, set to run from 29 April for 10 days, has been cancelled
Organisers Marine Industry Events (IME) cited the economic climate and poor exhibitor uptake.
Managing director Rob Mackenzie told the BBC that the cancellation of the show would “protect the integrity of what we know to be the enormous long-term potential for a major boat show in Liverpool. It is better to cancel the show to protect Liverpool’s reputation rather than to allow exhibitors who booked in good faith and visitors who would have travelled from all over the country in expectation of the participation of the brands who’d made late decisions not to take part.”
It is as yet unclear as to whether the show’s high-profile sponsors have been retained: the show had sponsors including Virgin Trains and EasyJet, and a record advertising budget of £500,000.
