Exhibitors sign up for PSP Southampton and London International Boat Shows

National Boat Shows (NBS) is pleased with levels of interest from exhibitors for the PSP Southampton Boat Show in September and has already received over 380 applications with deposits from marine companies. The extent of support shows that despite concern over the economy, the industry remains fully committed to the UK's premier Boat Shows.

Interest has also been stimulated following the introduction of Economic Conditions Discounts (ECDs) by the British Marine Federation (BMF) earlier this month, and applications for space at the 2010 London International Boat Show are also flooding in. By taking 90% of their 2009 space and making payments on time, companies who exhibited at the 2009 London International Boat Show and apply with deposit by 17 April will receive a 20% space discount in addition to any membership discount enjoyed. This ECD is also applicable to new companies who apply and make payments on time.

Andrew Williams, Managing Director of NBS, comments: "Companies are looking to reduce costs in this difficult climate and are therefore taking advantage of the ECDs by booking space with us at Southampton and London by the application dates. We're strongly encouraging exhibitors who have not yet confirmed their attendance at London to do so by 17 April to enjoy the 20% discount on space, as well as the extra cost saving initiatives we have put in place."

Big marine names such as Oyster Marine, Broom Boats, Sunseeker International, Northshore Yachts, Fairline Boats, Princess Yachts International, Avon Inflatables, Suzuki Marine, Furuno, Halyard M&I, Garmin, Rockley Watersports and many others have already confirmed their commitment to London's biggest annual indoor exhibition next year so as to benefit from the ECDs (for a full list of ECDs, go to www.britishmarine.co.uk/ECD).

Will Green of Princess Yachts International said on the incentives: "NBS and BMF have come up with a great package of savings to help the industry during difficult times. We fully support these initiatives and are committed to supporting another successful London International Boat Show."

Gareth Lumsdaine added: "The Suzuki Indoor Harbour was an
outstanding success at London 2009; we will certainly be looking at the additional opportunities provided by the ECDs with a view to growing our space for London 2010."
Claire Horsman of Northshore Yachts said: "We had a fantastic Show in 2009 and the ECD initiative has enabled us to grow our presence at the 2010 London Show."
