Genoa opens its door for its 63rd edition on Thursday 21 and closing on Tuesday 26 September.  Genoa is the largest boat show in the Mediterranean and Europe, with the 2023 edition offering over a thousand boats on display, thanks also to the addition of an extra one hundred plus of berths added to the show this year, and nearly two hundred products.  The 2022 Genoa boat show had 103,812 visitors, making it the most attended water boat show, and second in the World.  Along with most of the novelties from Cannes arriving a week later to Genoa, the 2023 boat show will feature the following World firsts; Amer 950, Astondoa AX 8, CNT Domina RS, Italia Yachts 43 Veloce, Italyure 35, Manda Senses 05, Mig 45, and Tornado 50RS.

The Fiera had in its second year doubled its exhibiting space, a theme of the show over the years who always upgraded its spaces, and recent big expansions coming with the Marina in 2006 which quadrupled water spaces, and the new Pavilion B designed by Jean Nouvel in 2009. In 1964 Genoa boat show became a member of IFBSO, with UCINA the Italian association of boat builders managing the show from 1966. This UCINA move marked the end of the Milan show which debuted in 1960 and had its last fifth edition in 1965. The Genoa boat show had a double edition in 1972; 29 January to seven February and one to ten December, while the 1973 edition was when it moved to its today known fall of the year October dates, with the show reduced to a smaller five day format in 2014 added by a day a couple years later.
