China (Shanghai) International Boat Show

Last Update: December 31st, 2017

The show runs for 4 days from 14th April to 17th April in 2011.

This is the 16th year of the China (Shanghai) International Boat Show. It itself is developing and moving further away from being an exhibition to being a true show, providing ever more variety for ever more visitors. According to the record of pre-registration, the number of visitors will increase 36% this year.


Over 400 various brands from more than 20 countries have confirmed coming and displaying their products, including nearly 300 boats in 5 halls and 4 squares of Shanghai Exhibition Center. The total occupation area has extended to 32,000 sq m.

The Asian Marine & Boating Awards which will be revealed at the second night black tie gala dinner have had their panel of judges selected and the categories are with them for nominations and the 4th CIBS Charity Regatta (still the only event of its type in China) has had the venue selected.

This is the last time the Show will be in the downtown exhibition centre as next year it will be moving to the former Shanghai Expo site, yet another step forward in the development of the efforts of the organizers in the promotion of water leisure activities in Shanghai and in China in general.

In conjunction with the Show there are professional forums and marine conferences organized and for the first time 2 elements for the more arty amongst us. The 1st Sailing your Dream Photography Festival and the 1st Best Boat Model Maker competition.

It is not even just a static boat show any more with some boats berthed on the nearby Huangpu River at the Shanghai Yacht Club for people to see them in their natural environment along with an Open Try a Boat day at Dianshan Lake on the city’s outskirts.

Something for everyone whether the keen boater, members of the profession or industry, the curious uninitiated or even someone just wishing a different sort of day out.

Some in the international boating industry already appreciate the value of the show with visitor numbers climbing year after year and the French, Italian, Australian and Taiwan industries already well represented along with, naturally, local companies but the American’s and British are yet to make their presence felt in a significant manner.

Boats, Bits, Clothing, Safety gear, Views, Chat and new toys to buy, the China(Shanghai) International Boat Show has the lot.
