Boat Show - Genoa 2010 Preview

It was fifty years ago when Fiera di Genova launched the International Boat Show in January 1962, as a small exhibition of just 30,000 square meters targeted at a limited public. Since 1966, the Show has been organised in co-operation with UCINA, the Association of Boat Industries and Shipyards, which is also the Show sponsor. Recognised by IFBSO - the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers, the show has developed throughout forty-nine editions, becoming a leading show worldwide in the field of pleasure boating thanks to the widest range of nautical products and to an extraordinary exhibiting area: 100,000 square meters of water basin surface and more than 200,000 square meters of pavilions and outdoor areas just next to the main entrance of Genoa’s harbour. Genoa is also regarded as a leader for medium to large size power boats. The fiftieth edition opens up on the 2nd October and will close on the 10th. As usual many boat builders will use this World parade of motor boats to present new models, while some others will follow whats was shown in the previous shows.
