Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC), the organisers of Poole Harbour Boat Show, has announced a number of new sponsors ahead of the inaugural event in May.
It has been revealed that luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Sunseeker, high-end property developer, Excellare, Coleman Insurance, Barclays, Humphries Kirk law firm, Mazars accountancy firm and Bates Wharf marine sales will all provide backing for the Poole Harbour Boat Show.
The show, which encompasses family focused entertainment as well as hosting a variety of marine-related businesses, anticipates high numbers of boat enthusiasts descending on Poole Quay and Poole Quay Boat Haven for the two-day event.
Inspired by other successful regional boat shows, PHC believe Poole is a perfect location for an all-encompassing boat show celebrating the rich and varied boating business present in the town.
Jim Stewart, Poole Harbour Commissioners’ chief executive said: “I’m incredibly proud to be announcing our current sponsors for the Poole Harbour Boat Show. The expertise of all of our sponsors is going to provide the perfect platform upon which the success of the show will be built.
“From fireworks to a live music stage, our sponsors are pleased to be a part of something that will further endorse Poole, and with the upcoming hosting of European Maritime Day in 2017, the event proves the town is a world-class destination for nautical endeavours.”
Bryan Jones, international marketing manager for Sunseeker added: “It’s fantastic to be part of the first Poole Harbour Boat Show. With support from both local and international sponsors, it’s a real chance for businesses to take hold of what is going to be a spectacular event with real industry innovators keen to pitch to a vibrant and flourishing boating community.”
The event is also supported by Poole Tourism which will include the show in its annual events programme and has scheduled the dates in May to co-ordinate it around other summer events on Poole Quay.
