Hi Ben,

'It's a big thank you from myself and the Lush team. The models enjoyed immensely and we appreciate the opportunity to have worked with your exhibitors. The show was brilliant, well organised and jam packed with entertainment - LIVE shows, celebrities, radio and competitions. Congratulations and we hope to be working with you next year.'

Sports Boat & Rib

Hi Ben,

Well despite the Friday weather everything went very well. We had a great response to our composite kayaks - quite different from the polythene ones, so reaching a different clientelle.

I have sent in a short report and some pictures to Alex at Sportsboat - if I had my usual support I could have done better by leaving the stand in wife Anna's capable hands. As it was I was busy virtually non-stop. Not mobbed, a steady trickle which is much better.

If we can have the same pitch next year with the same kind of slots for doing some demos and on the same kind of basis then I would like to come back. We are also interested in the North Wales Show if it goes ahead. Please keep us posted.

We would like to congratulate you on arranging a fantastic event. Everyone we spoke to were really impressed and compared it favourably with Southampton Boat Show.

Thank you for accommodating us at such short notice - it was difficult for us this year to judge as we are so low on stock.

Kind regards

Just a quick note to say that it seems we had a better quality of enquires at this years Boat Show at Margam Park, than we had at the County Show in Swansea, so hopefully they will be very fruitful.

Thanks for everything and hopefully we'll see you next year.

Hi Ben,

Thank you for putting on the show it really was a great Show. Walker Bay was worked by EP Barrus showing off these great little starter packages.

Mike Jones our Sales manager worked on the Littlehampton Marina (Larson) stand and currently has 3 confirmed Sales 2 x Larson and one Rinker 320 sale amazingly at 120k.

People travelled far and wide to attend this Show an amazing testimony to your professional set up of the Show.

Please come and see me for a booking next year

Best regards

Congratulations are due for putting on such a great show, the work you must have done to achieve that level of success had to have been horrendous, so well done. I photograph a great many shows and believe me you know a well organised event as soon as you walk onto the ground. You had a super back up team too and they all knew their roles, they too must be congratulated because without them you don't have a show.

It was a pleasure working with you and I would very much like to do it again in the future if you have anything else coming up.

Kindest Regards, Louis Milburn.

Sell Your Own Boat

A note to compliment you on the South Wales Boat Show, which can surely only grow in size and stature.

We are very grateful to you both for your support to us as a fledgling business. We also appreciate the time you gave us on what were obviously very busy days for you both.

Depending on the response we get as a result of our inclusion in the show guide and the distribution of flyers, we may be interested in further information about costs involved in renting a site for next year. I realise that you may not have set the cost for next year yet, but would appreciate an estimate in order that we can include this in our budget.

Best Wishes,

A. R. McDonald

Dear Ben,

Hope the rest of the show continued with good weather for you on Sunday & was a roaring success. I finally made it home around midnight so not bad going really.

Just wanted to again thank you for such a warm welcome at the show & to congratulate you on putting such a great show together, It was really impressive to see so many exhibitors there.

Keep smiling

E mailing you just to say thank you on organising a fantastic event. Personally i had a very good response to my smoothies on the Saturday and Sunday, unfortunate that the rain came on Friday. Hey there you go we can't control the weather.

Looking forward to next year and thanks for having me at your show.

Tall Ships-Swansea

Hi Ben,

Thank you for our space within your show. It was excellent being involved in your Boat show. Seeing so many people at the show all milling around, looking around, and seeing some people parting with money to but items at the show, that would give them pleasure in years to come.

It was excellent seeing so many youngsters sailing on the lake in little dinghies , learning what to do with the wind, and others pottering about with boats,matched by those jet skies.

Our stand of Tall Ships Youth Trust is aimed at youngsters voyages, to progress their careers, and to develop them as confident competent good citizens for their future life.

Should you invite us for your third show next year, then I would love the opportunity to be nearer the young adult part of the show.

You must be well pleased with the attendance, particularly with the weather,during the show it was raining quite heavily in Swansea.

Well done for an excellent Show and best of luck for next year.

Huw Francis,

Chairman, Tall Ships Swansea.


Hi Ben,

Very pleased with what you have done. Excellent Job, Amazing Venue! 2. Yes we will come back next year if at all possible, looking forward to it already, please keep us posted. 3. We sold about 500.00 of goods at show and we are receiving orders now from people who saw us at the show. - Our best show yet!

We would love to come along to North Wales if we can, if not we will see if we have a dealer a little closer willing to do it.

Many thanks

Best wishes

Hi Ben,

Just to let you know what I thought of your show! it was a well organised and very well received show. There were lots of national and regional players there so well done.

A North Wales show will also be well recived if run like the South Wales Boat Show.

Good luck - Scott
