The All Wales Boat Show is sailing back into Conwy Quays Marina on 9 to 11 June 2017, and with new sponsors and event partners on board it promises to be even bigger and better.
The Show, which is the only event that promotes Wales’ marine leisure industry, is being sponsored by GJW Insurance, The Warren, Hill Dickinson, and new for 2017 are The Mulberry pub and its owner Robinsons Brewery, Blah creative agency and the Manchester Evening News, while Urdd Gobaith Cymru, the Welsh League of Youth which aims to increase on the water activity for children and young people will be a show partner.
David Harrison, director of Retail Operations for Robinsons Brewery commented: “Having recently invested significantly in The Mulberry pub we are pleased to see other organisations investing in bringing people and business to this great area, and are therefore delighted to show our support and sponsor the All Wales Boat Show for the first time. There is already plenty of excitement within the marine industry and coast-related businesses on the Show’s return so this celebratory festival of all water-based activities will be a superb event.”
For the first time the land based part of the Show will be free to enter which will appeal to people wanting the coastal lifestyle, whether they be boat owners, watersport lovers or families looking for a great day out. The Show will continue to be fully interactive with exclusive experiences that can’t be found anywhere else, with visitors having the chance to discover a huge range of exhibitors, show events and activities, including plenty of opportunities to have a go themselves.
Davina Carey-Evans, organiser said: “Although the Show has been a growing success from day one, we decided to take a year out in 2016 in order to review every aspect and focus on giving it a fresh approach. During that year we visited other boat shows across the UK and realised the All Wales Boat Show is an event to be immensely proud of and with incredible support from the Welsh Marine Industry, this year’s show will be 30% bigger, and I am delighted that the majority of this increase is from businesses in Wales. Boating, watersports and coastal living to sustainable coastal holidays and marine conservation – the range of exhibitors is so diverse that we really will have something for everyone. Whether you want to own a boat from say Hanse, Brig or Chaparral, enjoy a coastal holiday or take part in one of the many watersport activities, this is an event not to miss.”
The All Wales Boat Show takes place from Friday 9 June to Sunday 11 June at Conwy Quays Marina. For further information visit www.allwalesboatshow.com or contact the Show organisers on 01248 810594.
