SBS BoatLife 2023 is shaping up to be a bumper event. Notable numbers are emerging and the boating industry is confidently backing the show, with 25% more space booked than in 2022 and a trend of repeat exhibitors taking larger stands. Advance ticket sales are well ahead of the first show and visitors can enjoy over 200 brands on display with more than 150 exhibitors and 200 boats inside the NEC, including 12 narrowboats!  

Currently 14 dedicated ambassadors will be attending, representing a variety of BoatLife sectors, including water sports, sailing, angling and inland waterways. Overall, 13 sponsors and partners have joined the team, with these significant boating brands supporting clothing, media, the activity pool and main stage, to name just a few. 

Richard Dove, MD of BoatLife Events, commented: ‘With not long to go, SBS BoatLife 2023 is shaping up to be a not-to-be-missed event for the boating community and beyond. Our aim of bringing those new to the water and seasoned marine enthusiasts together under one roof is being achieved. We can’t wait!’
