Sydney International Boat Show — August 1–5, 2019

Sydney International Boat Show


The Sydney International Boat Show is the largest boat show in the southern hemisphere, not only because of its world class location in Darling Harbour but also because of the 60,000 visitors who attend annually. The show caters to both B2B and B2C audiences.

More than 90% of the Australian population lives on or within 100km of this country’s extensive and ice-free coastline—and with its year-round boating climate, an estimated five million people enjoy recreational boating in Australia every year.

Recreational boating offers many options for the country’s 850,000 registered boaters and the Sydney International Boat Show offers the perfect platform for U.S. manufacturers to display their products to this wide audience of potential customers.

For the first time, the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) is organizing a U.S.A. Pavilion at this show to showcase the best U.S. boat builders, equipment manufacturers, marina developers or other businesses that provide products and services to the recreational or tourism boating markets have to offer.
