With video rapidly become a major news source, the emphasis from our team this year will be on video interviews. We have a video studio on the Show floor (you will find us on the main walkway between Halls 4-5) and a roving video team along with a big support team, behind the cameras, doing sound, titling, video editing and news distribution.
Our video news from the show will be posted on SydneyBoatShow.com.au website, on YouTube and naturally on our own sites.
During the Sydney Boat Show, some 70,000 people are expected thru the turnstiles, but in this connected world, the trade exhibitors will reach a much much biggest world, with news coverage across the major media the internet along with TV, radio. mainstream newspapers. Our own Marine Media group along will bring news to almost 250,000 marine enthusiasts this month alone, with 27,000 readers on an average weekday.
