The Liverpool Boat Show 2011 CANCELLED

The first ever Liverpool Boat Show was cancelled toay following the withdrawal of a number of major exhibitors.

The Liverpool Boat Show had been planned as a new central England show at the Albert Docks, Liverpool and was publicised as having the potential to be one of the biggest and most popular boat shows in Europe.

Market conditions and a not-so-good London Boat Show are just two reasons that have contributed to the withdrawal of exhibitors from the show and the subsequent cancellation of the Liverpool Boat Show.

The managing director of Marine Industry Events, the organisers of the inaugral, and now cancelled, Liverpool Boat Show has said that the show was cancelled this year "to protect the integrity of what we know to be the enormous long term potential for a major Boat Show in Liverpool."

So, it looks like it IS possible that we will have a Liverpool Boat Show at some point in the future - we can only hope - it would be a stunning venue, and UKAFLOAT looks forward to being there and reporting on the inaugral event, when it happens (or should that now be if it happens).

The Liverpool Boat Show was expected to generate in the region of 30,000,000 for the city's economy, and establish itself as an important show for the UK boating community, along with the Southampton Boat Show and the London Boat Show.

Highlights at the Liverpool Boat Show were to include several visiting Tall Ships, a waterfront marina full of used boats for sale, a water-based entertainment programme, and an appearance by the Royal Navy.
