The 2011 Genoa International Boat Show will be held at the Fiera di Genoa from 1st to 9th October, 2011. Genoa Boat Show will once more be the showcase for the top Italian and international boating industry operators and products, and will be characterised by a perfect blend of design, innovation and craftsmanship. Thanks to its unrivalled product range – from the smallest boats to mega-yachts, from accessories to engines, all the way to technical apparel – Genoa Boat Show is the reference event for the boating industry at a global level and for all pleasure boaters: a successful combination of business and training opportunities, sea culture, sports and entertainment.

Monday 3 and Tuesday 4 October will be the preferential days devoted to B2B meetings at Tech Trade, the large section devoted to pleasure boating components and accessories. In order to increasingly enhance direct contacts between boatyards and visitors, this year the “Boat Show experience” will also include the opportunity to perform sea trials; moreover, a dedicated reception will be set up in the mega-yachts area. One of the new features of the 51st edition of the Show will be the late opening hours on the first day of the Show, Saturday 1 October: it will be a night of true celebrations, with events and performances held in the various pavilions and at the exhibitors’ stands, which will offer all visitors an even more enthralling experience and really breathtaking views. Involving the public is indeed one of the goals Fiera di Genova and UCINA have been working to achieve: the result will be the zero-edition of GenovaInBlu, a sort of Boat Show’s “Fringe Festival” organised in cooperation with and under the aegis of the bodies making up Genoa Promotion Board, particularly Genoa Chamber of Commerce and Genoa City Council. During the nine days of the Boat Show, Genoa’s outstanding artistic and cultural heritage will be in the spotlight thanks to dedicated events, performances and special initiatives related to the pleasure boating world.

Such an effective and complex organisation is the result of a whole year of hard work and will once more bear witness to the key role played by Genoa International Boat Show in the boating sector worldwide, as confirmed also by its impressive figures: 1,300 exhibitors are indeed expected to take part in the Show; more than 2,000 boats will be on display, 450 of which in the water; 450 new crafts will be presented.
