MDL Marinas have announced that next year’s South Coast Boat Show will now be held from 21st to 23rd April at MDL’s flagship Ocean Village Marina. The change is due to the news that the coronation of King Charles is to be held on 6th May, which falls during the original show dates.
‘Following consultation with our exhibitors, we’ve decided it’s in everyone’s best interests to move the dates of the show,’ said Tim Mayer, Sales and Marketing Director at MDL Marinas. ‘The coronation of the King is a major event, which quite rightly will see many people watching in London or on the television from the comfort of their homes. The South Coast Boat Show is focused on showcasing power and sail brands to serious buyers, and to generate strong leads and direct sales for the boat dealers we need to ensure that as many people can attend as possible. We feel that running the show alongside an event of national and historical significance could impact on visitor numbers and the overall success of the show.’
