BRISBANE BOAT SHOW 2014
by Brooke Watts
In 2014 the Brisbane Boat Show will celebrate 54 years of showcasing the latest that Queensland’s trailer boat marine industry has to offer.
From Friday the 12th to Monday the 15th of September the Brisbane Boat Show will return to the city’s iconic Brisbane Showgrounds, taking advantage of new facilities as part of the venue’s redevelopment. 2013 saw the Brisbane Boat Show return to the Showgrounds after 20 years. Starting at Brisbane’s City Hall 53 years ago with only 11 exhibitors, the Brisbane Boat Show is a chance to check out the very latest in all things boating with five exhibitors alone chalking up in excess of 173 years showcasing boats. With a catch cry of everything marine under one roof, this is a boat show for boaties by boaties some who have been exhibiting as part of the Brisbane Boat Show from it's inception. This year the Brisbane Boat Show is excited to announce an affiliation with the Australian Fishing Tackle Association (AFTA) - upstairs of the Exhibition Building will be the Keep Australia Fishing Tackle precinct we can guarantee you won't want to miss! Keen to get into boating? Then we have you covered too, with experts who will be able to assist you with all of your needs enabling you to feel comfortable in asking the questions to prepare you to get out and about on the water this summer. There will be live entertainment, relaxing bars, a kids zone to excite every little angler and our own 'ramp champ' - reverse towing education for the not so experienced.
