Over the years, the Auckland Boat Show has developed a reputation as a hub for the new releases and innovations of the marine industry. And with the show returning in summer 2022, organisers say it will see more exhibitors and is set to be bigger than previously-planned shows.
The event, which was scheduled for October 2021 but was later cancelled due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 restrictions in Auckland, will be held in Jellicoe Harbour, formerly the America’s Cup team bases, from 17 to 20
“Scheduling the show for March dates has allowed for expansion both on water and on land.
“The show, which is known for its sea trials and extensive on-water component, will have an increased number of boats on display on the marinas, allowing for further sea trials and much-needed time in front of the boating public for the New Zealand marine industry,” organiser Stacey Cook said.
On-land exhibition space has also increased with more marquee space now available.
“We’re pleased to provide this platform for the industry to connect with the boating public,” said Cook.
“We know how much New Zealanders enjoy getting out on the water and incorporating the marine world in their leisure activities, and this is only gaining in importance as we all find new ways to unwind outside.”
The show has traditionally been run as a spring event across September or October dates, before the decision to shift to March was made this year, back to the original summer timing of the show, which was last run in 2010.
