Salerno - The first Salerno Boat Show, the yachting show organised by Marina d’Arechi, has come to an end. The balance is largely positive. There were 24,650 estimated visitors during the two weekends that the event was open to the public, 70% from Campania and 30% from outside of the region (and especially from Lazio and Puglia).
The exhibitors reported that the majority of visitors were seriously interested in buying boats, services and the accessories associated with them. In fact, there were many boat enthusiasts who made the most of this new opportunity.
The intention of the organisers was primarily to inject new energy into the yachting sector. The proof is in the number of test sails that took place during the show, and the number of contracts of sale announced. Marina d’Arechi is already at work on the second Salerno Boat Show, which will be held from 1 to 9 October, 2016.
