South Wales Boat Show looks good
25 May 2010

Ben Sutcliffe: one berth left…
With a little over three weeks to go, the South Wales Boat Show is, says organiser Ben Sutcliffe, all set to go. There is, he says, one extra berth available on a first come basis…
SWBS: Mr Sutcliffe says the final site plan will be up the middle of next week and all the exhibitors will be up by the end of the week. ‘This is really the last call if you need stand space in the main areas of the show,’ he said.
The 2010 advertising campaign started early in April and new visits are being generated by all sorts of marketing of the event, said Mr Sutcliffe. Several exhibitors are also sending out news and flyers to customers too.
‘We’re kindly supported by several media companies and this is helping to keep the show in the news,’ he added.
40,000 flyers have now arrived and going out. And the show is running a new promotion for the opening day – It’s Five pound Friday. ‘We’ve decided to print our own five pound notes, and when these are presented to the cashier adults will be admitted for only a fiver and children free for that day only.’
The final touches include 1500 square metres of astroturf ‘to give the show more of a feel.’ And a new attraction is Dragon Boat racing that’ll take place on the Sunday June 20 – entries are welcome, says Mr Sutcliffe.
The South Wales Boat show runs from Friday June 18 to Sunday June 20 at the Prince of Wales Dock in Swansea. More information from Ben Sutcliffe on 07796 457307 or ben@southwalesboatshow.co.uk

ZMP sponsors North and South Wales shows
11 May 2010
Ben Sutcliffe is extremely pleased to have ZMP sponsoring both of his shows
The announcement that ZMP is to sponsor both of Ben Sutcliffe’s Welsh boat shows gives them that seal of manufacturer involvement and endorsement that lifts them to the next level of boat shows. Our congratulations, Mr Sutcliffe.
BOAT SHOWS: Zodiac Marine & Pool, manufacturer of the Avon, Zodiac and Bombard brands of RIBs and Inflatable boats, is to sponsor the South Wales and North Wales Boat Shows for 2010.
ZMP will be showing its full range of products, including the Avon Seasport Jet performance tenders and the Bombard inflatable tenders, represented by Cambrian Boats at the South Wales Boat Show in Swansea Docks next month and Glaslyn Marine at the North Wales Boat Show at Bangor in July.
‘ZMP is the first company to sponsor both the North Wales and South Wales Boat Shows,’ said a very pleased Ben Sutcliffe, organiser for both shows. ‘The company will be given prime show areas at both of the shows as part of the sponsorship, giving the dealers the very best location to display this range of exceptional boats.’
‘We’ve closely followed the development of both the North Wales and South Wales Boat Shows with interest throughout the year,’ commented Alan Morgan, a director of ZMP Recreational UK. ‘Our dealers have come away from previous shows with very positive results and we’re therefore delighted to be returning in 2010 with even greater support.’
The fact that our UK offices are based in Wales makes sponsorship of both shows even more fitting, Mr Morgan added.
The South Wales Boat Show runs in the Prince of Wales Dock in Swansea from Friday June 18 to – Sunday June 20. The North Wales Boat Show runs from Friday July 30 to Sunday August 1 at The Vaynol Estate, Bangor.

Evening Post reports ...

Make a splash at boat show . TO celebrate the South Wales Boat Show sailing into Swansea ticket-holders have been invited to make a splash for themselves. Traditionally held in the grounds of Margam Park, the largest marine event in Wales is relocating to the more nautical location of the Prince of Wales Dock in the SA1 development. To mark the move, the nearby LC has joined forces with the event organisers to provide even better value. All boat show ticket holders will gain free entry to the LC's waterpark throughout the show period.
Nic Beggs, LC marketing manager said: "We've attended the South Wales Boat Show for the past two years and there's always a fantastic atmosphere, with loads going on for a full family day out.
"With the new location being so close to the LC, we've been able to enhance the show even more by offering the complementary use of the waterpark for ticket holders." South Wales Boat Show's Ben Sutcliffe said: "I've not taken the relocation lightly but the new venue has so many advantages now that the show is bigger, with the added benefit of craft afloat too. "The maritime quarter and SA1 development has so much to offer, and visitors to the boat show can take advantage of this making their day out even better."  The show is set to take place from Friday, June 18, to Sunday, June 20, with more than 200 exhibitors planned.
