SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW RETURNS TO DARLING HARBOUR AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS STAR IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER EVENTS

By Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia , 31 July, 2017


Members of the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) are gearing up for a busy few months, with close to 70 exhibitions and events being held across the country in August and September.

The EEAA’s Calendar of Trade and Consumer Exhibitions and Events shows a number of events will be held in the home, leisure & lifestyle sector, in particular, outdoor sports – making this a prime season for recreational outdoor enthusiasts.

The Sydney International Boat Show will make its return to Darling Harbour this week. The event will see key EEAA Members; Boating Industry Association, International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), AsiaEvents Exsic and Harry the Hirer come together to host the largest recreational marine event in the southern hemisphere.

EEAA Chief Executive, Joyce DiMascio, was pleased to see the inclusion of the Australia International Dive Expo which will enhance the experience for all involved when the show makes its return to Darling Harbour.

“The synergy between these two shows is a perfect example of the innovation within the events industry.” she said.

“It is encouraging to see organisers working together and keeping their events fresh and engaging. This will no doubt create the potential for more visitors to attend the event.”

Other industry categories featuring in the August/September event line-up include; gaming, food, AV and waste management. Oz Comic-Con will also be returning to both Brisbane and Sydney late September. Calendar Highlights include:
