Preparations are already underway for the Venice Boat Show 2021, with organisers announcing the event will take place from May 29-June 6.

The 2021 edition is set to build on the inaugural 2019 event, which saw more than 27,000 people and 50 yachts attend the event at the city’s historic Arsenale.

The 2021 edition will return to the Arsenale and will include a section dedicated to sailing yachts. There will also be a specific focus on environmental yachting and hybrid propulsion systems.

The event will also bring together industry professionals to discuss a range of issues, including sustainability and yacht design.

Venice mayor Luigi Brugnaro said: “The 2021 edition confirms its setting as an event with a transversal approach to boating and a strong cultural vocation, as the place that welcomes it deserves: the Arsenale of Venice, a symbol of the military power of the Serenissima and heart of its shipbuilding industry.”

Plans for the 2021 edition of the Venice Yacht Show were unveiled following the cancellation of this year’s event due to the coronavirus pandemic.
