Preparations Underway for Second Annual Venice Boat Show

Preparations are well underway for the second annual Venice Boat Show, with organisers promising a "bigger and better" event than last year's inaugural edition.

Set to take place from June 3-7, the 2020 Venice Boat Show will build on last year, which saw more than 27,000 people and 50 yachts attend the event at the city's historic Arsenale.

The 2020 edition will return to the Arsenale, which is currently undergoing renovation works that will increase exhibition spaces in time for the event.

Organisers are also encouraging the attendance of more sailing yachts and revealed there will be a specific focus on environmental yachting and hybrid propulsion systems.

It comes after organisers were awarded the ISO 20121 certification from Bureau Veritas Italia for sustainability in their planning, management and implementation of the show.

Fabrizio D'Oria, director of events communication and Venice Boat Show organiser MICE, revealed the show's intention to target "the new eastern market".

“Venice is the starting point, as it has been for many centuries, of a long journey along the Croatian coast, Montenegro and Greece, ending in Istanbul," he said.

“Our perspective is very different from that of other Mediterranean Boat Shows, which mostly stick to the same market and struggle to gain leadership, always pushing shipbuilders to attend with high participation costs, but not always getting the expected returns.”
