The All-Wales Boat and Leisure Show is coming to the Anglesey Showground from 30 May to 1 June and is expected to attract boat lovers from across the UK.
The marine sector is growing faster in Wales than any other part of the UK and boating generates an annual tourism spend of £282 million.
According to organiser Davina Carey-Evans, managing director of Beaumaris-based Sbarc Event Management, who has previously been involved with marine events such as the One Ton Cup and the annual Round Anglesey Race, said: “The All-Wales Boat Show has evolved and grown and the 2019 event will also include a strong leisure element.
“Moving the show to Anglesey showground – the event was previously held in Conwy and Pwllheli – will hopefully be a catalyst for our plan to turn the island into a major events hub. Anglesey is already a mecca for watersports and is surrounded by 146 miles of brilliant coastline.
“The show will connect together industry leaders in boat and leisure products and services across Wales, with not only watersport and boating enthusiasts but all those that have a passion for the great outdoors. The level of interest from the marine sector is unprecedented for the next event, with over 17 of the best-known brands already signed up.
“It is going to be a must-visit for boat owners, water sport-lovers or families looking for a great day out.
