IFBSO gains two new members

The International Federation of Boat Show Organisers (IFBSO) ended a successful 2011 Congress on a high note, with the admission of two new members to the exclusive association.

At the AGM, held on the final day of Congress on June 11 in the Dutch city of Rotterdam, members voted to admit two new boat shows into their midst, the Korea International Boat Show and Eurasia Boat Show from Turkey.

The Korean show is held in Hwaseong City, on the west coast of South Korea about 50km from Seoul, and by coincidence its fourth edition was taking place at the same time as IFBSO members were considering its membership application in Europe. Uniquely for an IFBSO show, it is owned and organised by the local authority, the Gyeonggi Provincial Government. Surrounding the capital, Gyeonggi is the most populous of South Korea's provinces.

Turkey's Eurasia Boat Show was first held in February 2007, making 2011 its fifth edition. Taking place in Istanbul, it is owned by the exhibition centre CNR Expo and supported by DENTUR, the Turkish marine industry association. IFBSO now has two members with shows in Istanbul, the other being the International Istanbul Shop & Miles Boat Show that takes place in the Marinturk Istanbul City Port each October.

Membership of IFBSO is granted only to established boat and marine trade shows that meet stringent criteria laid out in the IFBSO Code of Excellence.

Members also elected a new President at the AGM. Jurij Korenc of Internautica Boat Show, Slovenia, who took over as Acting President in January after former President Andy Williams stood down, will serve a two-year term as full President.

The three-day Congress in Rotterdam was the 49th to be held in conjunction with ICOMIA, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations.
