Docklands will host the 60th Melbourne Boat Show in October with the major event set to be a drawcard for visitors and a welcome boost to the precinct’s economy.
The show, which has moved from the Melbourne Convention Centre, will be held at on the waterfront at NewQuay Promenade from October 20 to 23 with up to 100 exhibitors on site.
In addition to drawing huge crowds, a key focus of the event will be visitor experience and lifestyle that will entice and encourage current and new boaters.
The world-class event is the largest boat show in Victoria, attracting boaters, water sport enthusiasts, non-boaters alike – both nationally and internationally.
The Docklands Chamber of Commerce said the show would provide an “amazing exposure” for the community that had been hit hard by the pandemic.
The chamber will be “releasing opportunities to cross promote and capitalise” on the show. •
