Sail-World.com : Sydney International Boat Show 2014 - eight weeks to go
Sydney International Boat Show 2014 - eight weeks to go

'New era for Sydney Boat Show'    BIA NSW    Click Here to view large photo

The Sydney International Boat Show opens in eight weeks and all aspects of planning are progressing well. It will be an interesting year, with a split show. Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island will be a new challenge for the organisers, made necessary by the rebuilding of Darling Harbour's Convention Centre.

Added features to the in-water displays in Cockle Bay will also change the face of this element of the show, all for the better.

2014 will be different in many ways, and those changes have created both a sense of excitement as well as an opportunity to deliver new and rewarding experiences for the visiting audience.

One thing is for certain, new developments are occurring on a daily basis and as such, please find following an update on the show as of today.

Transport

The Department of Premier and Cabinet’s NSW Event Operations Group (EOG) is working with the BIA to ensure that transport between the two sites operates smoothly.

Darling Harbour will be the 'door' to the boat show with limited parking at Glebe Island.

In addition:
• Free buses will operate between Central Railway station and Glebe Island
• Free Ferry transfers will operate between Darling Harbour and Glebe Island. This link will be complemented with buses for those not wishing to travel by water.

There will be a series of visitor communication tools to ensure show guests know in advance where they can park and how to get around.

Parking
Parking at the Exhibition Centre is limited. For visitors we suggest that Darling Harbour, with 7,000 parking spots within walking distance of the show, should be their first option. Limited Parking (1,000 spots) will be available at Glebe Island.

The BIA is pleased to announce that Andrew Ettingshausen (ET) and Jessica Watson have both agreed to front our campaign to deliver messages about the show. Both ET and Jessica are well known, credible and well admired boating personalities who will be an asset to the show. We thank them for joining the Sydney International Boat Show family.

Education & Entertainment
The Marine Precinct will remain a vibrant and educational element at the show where together with Transport for NSW’s office of Maritime Management Centre, and in conjunction with Roads and Maritime and other key organisations, visitors to the show will be able to be guided and have many of their recreational boating questions answered.

The MyBoatingLife.com.au Entertainment Precinct will continue with a fresh layout, great line up of speakers and a non-stop entertainment package including the Musto Fashion Extravaganza to entertain our show guests.

Our Partner in Safety remains Roads and Maritime who through the office of the Maritime Management Centre within Transport for NSW, together we remain committed to educating our audience that safe boating is good boating.
