Plenty on offer at the Brisbane Boat Show
ONLY a few weeks away, Brisbane Boat Show looks like being better than ever when it runs this year from 25 to 27 August.
The show will return to the exhibition halls of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre where the organisers have had to increase the floor space for the event to cater to this year’s increased demand from exhibitors.
When you look at the profile of visitors that attended last year’s show, you can understand why the show has the appeal that it has. Trailer boating dominates the local waterways, and the show is a haven for enthusiasts of trailer boating and the very popular pastime of fishing.
The Brisbane Boat Show is where industry comes together to display and offer the best in recreational boating. The boats are the show’s heroes, but all the boating and fishing gear you might need will be available too.
The Boating Industry Association is the owner and operator of the event. BIA Chief Executive Howard Glenn said “Boat manufacturing plays a big part in the Queensland economy and this event shows off the quality and ingenuity that Australia has to offer.
“With Australia’s recreational boating headquarters and manufacturing hub at Brisbane’s doorstep, visitors can be assured that the industry will put its best foot forward for this show.”
The show boasts that it’s the best place to buy boats, and it also ensures the event is a place for education and entertainment. Working off the principle that ‘good boating is safe boating’, show organisers have pulled together an excellent line up of agencies to help boaties better understand how to enjoy their time on the water.
An extensive program for the education stage is being developed, and with more than seventy percent of visitors having an interest in fishing, you can guess what will feature here.
To add to the entertainment, visitors can get to know a little more about the industry’s fastest growing sector. An oversized swimming pool will be on hand to demonstrate kayaks and stand-up paddle-boards. Those not too shy of the water can give it a go should they wish.
If you love boats, fishing and water sports, get along to the Brisbane Boat Show.
