The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS), has announced an array of changes and improvements to the 2016 show, including dedicated new product precincts and a reworked layout, which is set to improve the flow of exhibition space maximising visibility for exhibitors and enhancing the visitor experience.
New to SCIBS in 2016,will be the introduction of a dedicated sport and trailer boat precinct, known as The Boat Yard. Located close to the iconic waterfront George’s Paragon restaurant and adjacent to C Pier, The Boat Yard will offer 1600sqm of display space for exhibitors to showcase their latest models, while also being able to offer sea trials to prospective buyers.
Among other changes, the Superyacht and Marine Pavilion will relocate alongside the main pavilion, encouraging foot traffic through a display of Australian-made products, global service providers and the industry gadgets.
Next year’s layout will also see SCIBS further drive its reputation for showcasing luxury living, with a range of sports, convertible, luxury, prestige and supercars to be on display in their own precinct, named Supercar Street.
Johan Hasser, general manager of SCIBS, said the new precincts promised to be something really special. He explained, “Feedback from our sport boat and trailer boat exhibitors showed they are keen to display their boats in a specific location, which makes it easier for visitors to see them all at once, compare brands and models and take their time.
“With The Boat Yard featuring everything from skiboats and performance RIBS to trailerboats fitted out for angling or diving, and Supercar Street showcasing the most impressive luxury vehicles on the road, visitors are guaranteed to experience ‘shows within the show’.
“We will also be investing in theming, custom flooring and an eye-catching portal to evoke visitors’ imaginations. There will be stalls, stages and entertainment, adding to the atmosphere.”
SCIBS is scheduled to take place between 19th and 22nd May 2016.
