Colombia Nautica, established by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, Grupo Heroica and AsoNautica Colombia, is now welcoming exhibitors and offering sponsorship opportunities for the 2017 Colombia Nautica International Boat Show, taking place April 27-30, 2017 in the coastal city of Cartagena de Indias. The inaugural show will feature a diverse on-water exhibition of new and used boats along with an indoor exhibition for companies to display their products and services in a world class exhibition center, the Centro de Convenciones.
“We’re excited to be able to offer a host of exhibit opportunities – on land, indoors and slips in-water – to meet the needs of every company related to the recreational boating industry. We look forward to welcoming exhibitors from Colombia, as well as international leading providers of marine products and services,” said Show Director and Director of Colombia Nautica, Miguel Anghel Franco. “Plans are well underway to ensure that the Colombia Nautica International Boat Show will be a must attend event for boating enthusiasts from throughout the country and a productive place of business for the industry.”
Planning for the show began in earnest following the successful Colombia Nautica International Congress last April, which proved that Colombia was ready for a premier recreational boating event. The country has 28 privately funded marina projects, and several public projects, underway as part of the national plan for nautical tourism.
The new Colombia Nautica International Boat Show will feature the largest selection of boats, boating accessories, and products and services for the nautical sector in the region, along with boating education, nautical activities, a kid’s zone, live music and a variety of dining options. The newly installed docks at the convention center will ensure that the in-water portion of the show delivers a superb experience for both exhibitors and attendees.
“With the fantastic backdrop of the historic old city, and the on-water setting, the show will be a destination for not only Colombians, but all of Latin America,” said Franco.
Boat manufacturers, marine dealers, equipment suppliers, marina developers, retailers and nautical service providers looking to reach the Latin American market are encouraged to contact Miguel Anghel Franco at email@example.com or +575-654-4000, ext. 4256 to participate.
