Due to the fantastic success of the Tairua Boat Show last year and feedback from most exhibitors, the 2021 edition promises to be bigger and even better.
This year the show will also include a sizeable undercover marquee in the centre of the marina, which will house marine industry wholesalers, fishing, diving and electronics suppliers.
Most of the exhibitors who attended the 2020 show (the only boat show to be held in 2020 in New Zealand) have indicated their return, plus with extra space now available, the show will be even bigger. Due to demand and feedback from exhibitors last year, the show will be running over three days, 13th to 15th August 2021, at the Tairua Marina.
“We had over 10,600 people through last year, which was a huge plus for all concerned, and nearly all that attended were good serious punters who spent well and ordered big during the show”, said show organiser Stuart Arnold.
He added that due to the success of last year’s show, he already has an extensive waiting list from other companies wishing to attend the show and expects to have the ‘sold out’ sign up well before the show opens in August.
“Due to the huge success of last year’s show, we have received a fabulous grant from Coromandel Tourism to be used to promote the show, so we will be hitting all of the best magazines with full-page adverts, social media, street signage over the Coromandel and all over the country”, says Stuart.
