Georgia show reports increase in attendance

Organizers of the 10th annual Savannah (Ga.) Boat & Outdoor Show, held March 2-4 at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center, said the event saw an increase in attendance from last year and it "proved to be a successful event for boat sales."

Show manager Debbie Taylor said 5,500 people attended, a 10 percent increase from 2011, despite severe thunderstorms and a tornado warning that affected attendance on the Saturday of the show.

Exhibitors who participated reported that attendees were “very well targeted, and many boats were sold on site, with great potential for other boat sales after the show.”

The 11th annual show is scheduled for March 1-3, 2013, at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.

“We are making plans to expand and enhance the show to include our in-water docks,” Taylor said.

The show is produced by JBM & Associates, an event management and marketing firm with a focus on consumer show management.
