Organizers cancel Boston Fall Boat ShowPosted on
The Boston Fall Boat Show will not take place this year, organizers announced.
“Due to the current economic climate, the local marine marketplace cannot support a show at this time. We simply could not get enough additional exhibitor support to make the numbers work for 2011,” show manager Warren Kelly said in a statement.
“If all the exhibitors returned from last year, we would still have a significant shortfall in revenue,” he added. “We need new dealers and new brands to enter this market to produce a profitable show. This has been a major show in this region for many years, and it will be back.”
The show is owned by Boat Shows Inc., a subsidiary of the Massachusetts Marine Trades Association.
