2019 is the 20th Crick Boat Show

Building on the sucess of the established Saturday to Monday Show, we are marking the 20th Show with a new Trade & Preview Day on the preceding Friday.  For exhbitors who wish to take part for the three regular Show days, we have reserved a large number of spaces by introducing zones to the Show site. See the Exhbitor Guide for full information.

Trade & Preview Day, Friday 24 May – New for 2019

The Trade & Preview Day, on the Friday preceding the Show, will offer:

  • 3 hours with no public admittance to allow boatbuilders and boating industry suppliers to meet with one another.
  • Access from 1pm for a limited number of pre-booked visitors to view boats and talk to specialist equipment and service suppliers in greater depth and at a more relaxed pace.
  • An opportunity for exhibitors to spend more time talking to trade press to promote their business and products.

For Trade & Preview Day, the Show site will be zoned (see site plan) to maintain areas available for the traditional three days for exhibitors who do not wish to take part of this extra day.
