London Boat Show British Marine Federation
The diamond anniversary London Boat Show 2014 attracted a total of 88,593 visitors across the nine days - 4,734 down on the 2013 event, but organisers say they are pleased with resulting sales and exhibitor feedback.

The show, which ran 4 to 12 January, attracted more than 400 exhibitors to the ExCeL exhibition centre and docklands to display their products, with nine world debuts and 19 European and UK launches, culminating in a total of 76 launches at the show in total.

A spokesman for the British Marine Federation said the London Boat Show 'presented the best of the marine industry and good quality business was conducted at a time when the £2.905bn industry is demonstrating optimism and confidence for the months ahead.'


Sales from this year's show confirm the British Marine Federation latest research, which suggests industry growth is returning to pre-recession levels, with some exhibitors experiencing record-breaking sales figures.

Murray Ellis, managing director of National Boat Shows, said: 'We are pleased with the success of the 2014 London Boat Show and have celebrated its 60th anniversary with some of the best brands in the marine industry.

'Thousands of boats, brands, technology, training and free interactive attractions have filled the nine days which has led to the positive feedback from both exhibitors and visitors.


'We are delighted with the high quality of visitors who came to this year's show and the number of exhibitors who have signed up to exhibit in 2015.'

The 2015 London Boat Show has been scheduled for 10 to 18 January 2015 at ExCeL London.
