BRITISH Marine Boat Shows, organiser of the London Boat Show, has announced plans for a re-defined event for 2018.

Starting on Wednesday 10 January until Sunday 14 January, the now five day event will be packed with unique attractions and new shows within the show, introducing the Boating & Watersports Holiday Show.

Murray Ellis, chief officer of boat shows at British Marine comments: ‘Having gathered and listened to feedback from visitors and exhibitors, we knew we needed to make some changes. We are confident that the shows will benefit from increased marketing activity, with a focus on promoting the ExCel event to a wider audience.
