Marine Queensland is excited to reveal a new venue for the 2013 Brisbane Boat Show. From the fifth to the eighth of September 2013 the Brisbane Boat Show will return to the city’s iconic RNA Showgrounds, taking advantage of new facilities as part of the venue’s redevelopment.

'In 2013 the Brisbane Boat Show will celebrate 53 years of showcasing the latest that Queensland’s trailerboat marine industry has to offer,' said Greg Nickerson, Marine Queensland President.
'The decision to move the event was not made lightly and comes after a lengthy consultation process with members and key industry exhibitors.'

'The redeveloped showgrounds provides a fantastic mix of indoors and outdoors space allowing us to tailor exhibition options to suit varying needs and budgets.'

The Brisbane Boat Show will make use of the redeveloped Industrial Pavilion which has been transformed into a $65 million state of the art convention and exhibition centre over two levels with the addition of over 10,000m2 of new exhibition space.

The multi-level centre offers Australian first features including a custom-built operable ceiling grid system which can significantly reduce exhibition set up time. The 30 x 9m2 frames are each capable of a 700kg load, are fitted with power and network ports and are able to be lowered by remote control.



'In recent years the costs of producing shows has increased dramatically while the ability of exhibitors and visitors to bear additional costs is diminishing. Getting the balance between cost of running the event and ensuring that the value proposition for exhibitors and visitors remains strong is increasingly difficult. This move allows the association to address these issues and lessen the burden of costs on exhibitors and visitors'.

'The Brisbane Boat Show continues to be a key retail event for marine dealerships and products suppliers in South East Queensland.'

'We aim to deliver true value through industry owned and operated events. This means that members and exhibitors can be confident that their dollar spend works twice – once at the event and secondly when the event’s gate takings are reinvested back into the promotion of the industry.'

The Brisbane Boat Show was last held at the RNA Showgrounds in 1996.

In 2013, Marine Queensland will also run and manage:
- The Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show, March 15 – 17 (RNA Showgrounds)
- The Mackay Marine Festival, June 22 & 23 (Mackay Marina)
- Power, Sail & Paddle, 23 & 24 November (Manly Harbour, Brisbane)

'Marine Queensland is committed to ensuring the association’s events continue to evolve to meet consumer and industry demands' said Nickerson.
