2008 show wins award despite economic slowdown

The 2008 Collins Stewart London Boat Show has won Best Consumer Show at the AEO (Association of Event Organisers) Excellence Awards 08 announced yesterday at Earls Court 2.

The win demonstrates the show’s strength and resilience in the face of challenging market conditions due to the national economic slow-down as well as increased competitive conditions within the industry. Despite this, the show reported consistent visitor attendance as well as excellent sales revenue.

Over 127,000 visitors attended the Collins Stewart London Boat Show at ExCeL, one of the major highlights being the varied and exciting entertainment on the main stage.
