London Boat Show

The international exhibition London Boat Show was founded in 1954 and since then has become one of the most important events for sailing and watersports. It is held once a year in ExCeL London and attracts globally renowned brands, journalists and hundreds of thousands of boating enthusiasts. Many manufacturers choose the show to introduce their new products to the audience before their global launch takes place, which is why visitors have the opportunity to witness exclusive boat debuts.

London Boat Show is the meeting point between leading leisure marine and lifestyle brands and top international buyers. The fact that 70% of the exhibitors are returning to the show and 70% of the visitors don’t attend other events of this nature, proves its significance for all participants.
