SCIBS 2020 Offers Exciting Changes

by admin

Exhibitors can now secure their preferred space on the water and within the vibrant Marine Village for the 2020 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) held from May 21-24.

Marine brands are invited to join the 32nd edition of SCIBS, home to a stellar display of the latest products and innovations all in one spectacular location.

Following the 2019 show which was declared as one of the most successful in the event’s history, attracting 47,243 visitors, 334 exhibitors and over 600 boats, organisers anticipate exhibitor space will again sell out well before SCIBS 2020 in May.

A raft of exciting changes has been implemented to the site to enhance further the visitor experience, including an improved pavilion layout and new zones catering for more trailerable boats on land and luxury vessels on the water. 

The recent announcement of an $8.31m investment by owners Mulpha Australia Ltd to expand the Sanctuary Cove Marina ahead of the show will facilitate more boats on the water with brand new premium options for vessels up to 55m. 

SCIBS General Manager Johan Hasser said the expansion of the marina presents the opportunity to grow the high-end offering on water and strengthen the luxury superyacht and charter segments at the show.

Maritimo Lead Designer and Brand Director Tom Barry-Cotter said that SCIBS is one of the essential marketing initiatives on the Maritimo annual calendar. 

“2020 is set to be one of the most impressive shows yet. Maritimo will have a number of models exhibiting within our on water brand experience including the launch of a premier model with details to be announced soon.” 

Riviera Brand & Communications Director Stephen Milne confirmed that the company was looking forward to their 28th appearance at SCIBS and the opportunity to showcase an outstanding collection of motor yachts.

“2020 will be an exceptional year for Riviera as we celebrate our 40th Anniversary. Being such a prestigious year, Riviera has many plans and surprises in store for 2020, and that includes a sensational display of motor yachts at SCIBS.”
