Boat shows in 2011

There are two main boat shows held throughout the year and if you’re attending either, it’s always wise to sort out your accommodation well in advance.

London International Boat Show 2011

The London International Boat Show kicks off the year with a huge exhibition of all things marine related.  500 exhibitors will gather at London ExCel centre to show off their wares. The centre piece of the show will be a huge watersports pool, to be used for a wide range of activities from canoeing and kayaking to stand up paddle boarding, wakeboarding to dinghy sailing for children, plus canoe polo and model yacht racing. The latest developments in modern boating will be on show, as well as the chance to learn about traditional skills and techniques in the Classic Boat section.

The London International Boat Show runs from 7th – 16th January 2011.  Find serviced apartments in nearby Canary Wharf.
