Charleston reports solid show salesPosted on
Attendance at the annual Charleston (S.C.) Boat Show was better than expected at the Jan. 23-25 event, with exhibitors reporting sales similar to last year’s show.
“We are thrilled that the current recession did not have a significant negative impact on the show’s attendance or the number of transactions,” show producer Jacqui Bomar of JBM & Associates said in a statement.
Bomar said attendance was down “only a small percentage” from 2008, and she said feedback from dealers and vendors has been positive. A total of 7,952 people attended, according to Bomar.
Next year’s show is scheduled for Jan. 22 -24 at the Charleston Area Convention Center Complex.
