Show is postponed for a year while organisers focus on developing a new 2010 British Leisure Show.
The Sail Power & Watersports Show won’t run at Earls Court this year, says Managing director James Brooke.
Instead, he plans to run a British Leisure Show next spring at Windsor Racecourse and also run a marine-based show at Earls Court in November 2010.
‘Over the last two years we have directed over £5m GBP of investment to promote the marine industry through our shows at Earls Court,’ said Mr Brooke. ‘As we continue to increase the level of investment, it has been essential to fully understand the new challenges facing many companies within the marine industry in 2009, and beyond.’
‘We look forward to returning to Earls Court in November 2010,’ he said.
So the new show will run in the spring next year, on the banks of the River Thames, at the Royal Windsor Racecourse from Friday 19 – Sunday 21 March.
The British Leisure Show, says Mr Brooke, will incorporate an extensive range of products from all leisure sectors, including marine, outdoor leisure, country pursuits, classic & sports cars, bikes, caravan & camping, health & fitness, extreme sports, aviation and British tourism, and many more.
