Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo
March 1 - March 2
The organising committee of the Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo has announced they are calling a halt to the show. Owing to escalating demand for new boats, shipyard re-fit, maintenance and repair works coupled with the inability to expand the current footprint of the burgeoning event, the show will be halted effective 2018.
“After lengthy consideration, the committee has reluctantly reached this decision, especially following the success of our 2017 show for both our valued boating enthusiast visitors and exhibitors,” said Emma Brown, the long-serving event, and marketing manager of the Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo.
“The boat building factories at the Gold Coast Marine Precinct in Coomera are now bustling as a result of new boat sales and the hardstands and re-fit sheds are a hive of activity. Available space within the current site, together with the impact of the show on businesses in the precinct has become a significant consideration.”
The award winning Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo has grown significantly through its seven years of operation, welcoming more than 140,000 people through the gates in that time.
