If you wish to exhibit your BOAT, please choose from the following options:
Floating Marina Space
Exhibiting your boat in Crick Marina is one of the best ways to showcase your company. The marina is the heartbeat of the show and the floating berths are always in high demand. We welcome both narrowboats and wide beams. Wide beams are charged for the additional berth space they require. Demand for this exhibition space is commonly greater than availability, so it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT BOOKINGS ARE MADE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE in order to avoid disappointment.
Land-based Marina Space
The land-based marina is located at the heart of the show. This position is also ideal if you are bringing a wide beam boat to the show. Location in this area allows for visitors to inspect the hull and undertake a supervised visit through the boat’s interior. A marquee can be erected at one end of the “berth“ to ensure visitors receive your full attention. We are able to help with marquee hire. Craning must be arranged separately from your space booking.
If you wish to exhibit OUTSIDE, please choose from the following:
One of the most popular spots on the event site. Situated on hard-standing around the marina and in close proximity to our floating exhibits, this location enjoys excellent footfall and unique selling opportunities. Pitch sizes can be customised but are subject to a minimum depth of 3m.
