BHbeat Website offers you the Local Bournemouth News: Salterns Marina and Salterns Brokerage, organizers and hosts of the award-winning Sandbanks Boat show reported that the event will not be going forward. The decision was taken for a number of reasons. As the predecessor of the regional “boutique ” boat style shows, it is getting harder to keep things fresh and varied, not to mention the limited space in our marina where many other marinas are now following the same format. Most recent is the Poole Quay Haven Haven Announcement They will be hosting their own event during the same weekend as the Sandbanks Boat Show; IX-10 May.
Nick Smith, managing director said: “There is clearly no room for two shows to be held in such close proximity that will only dilute the standard of the show that we seek to. It may come as a blow to many exhibitors and visitors, so our hugely successful show comes to an end. We would like to thank everyone who took part and supported us, gaining big sales and exposures during the four years that this unique and popular event takes place. ” The Poole Kei boat Haven was originally designed as visitors Marina and Poole Quay was a fitting place to host such a show. It is important for us and for the marine trade to have a show that not only takes care of the stubborn sea client, but also to introduce and attract new and fresh faces for rowing, perhaps for the first time. As traders of many well-known boating brands including Cranchi, Sealegs, Orkney, Sea-Doo plus board/outboard motors and accessories, salt pans will continue to promote these products on various shows and events next year.
