The 52nd Genoa International Boat Show opened saturday


The 52nd Genoa International Boat Show opened on Saturday. The show features 900 participating exhibitors, over 1,400 on display on a more-than-200 thousand square-metre exhibition area including four pavilions, large outdoor spaces and two equipped marinas and featuring a new layout. Stella Maris, a 72-metre yacht by Viareggio Superyachts, is the show’s largest yacht.

The layout of the Boat Show, which extends over four pavilions, two marinas and large outdoor areas overlooking the sea, has evolved over the years to ensure the best possible product arrangement; easily identifiable colour-coded routes will lead visitors to the section they are most interested in: grey will identify accessories, red sailing boats, light blue power boats, and blue mega-yachts.

The diving sector will be back at the Show after thirty years in a dedicated area set up by Confisub, while the shopping area will be near the section devoted to tourism, services and electronic equipment in the first gallery of Pavilion S. Pavilion C has also undergone some major layout changes: a central exhibition area will host the stands of the most important technical/nautical apparel brands and will serve as a temporary show and shopping space, with product presentations, fashion shows, conferences and meetings that will follow a specific schedule, while the shopping area will be open to the public at all times. Pavilion C will also be the brand-new location of the Sea Theatre, where interesting events will alternate with those of the temporary show & shopping space. Pavilion C will still be hosting B2B meetings; to its more-than-aware public and to professional operators Genoa International Boat Show will once again offer TechTrade, the section devoted to components and accessories for pleasure boating. Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th will be the b2b preferential days.

Sailing boats will be on display in Marina 1, a central location that will ensure high visibility to all participating companies. Sailing accessories and equipment will be in the Mondoinvela area in Pavilion D, which has been reopened specifically to ensure product continuity with the crafts on display in the water.

The Genoa International Boat Show will be open every day from 10 am to 6.30 pm.
