The exhibition organisers announce that they have worked on better planning of the visits: "When planning the configuration of the new Hall 1, we completely rethought the design and layout of the boot areas. It was obvious that our exhibitors and visitor service would be at the forefront," explains Petros Michelidakis, the exhibition manager.
Hall 1 will host inboard powerboats from 30 to 60 feet, with manufacturers such as Jeanneau, Bénéteau, Sealine, Bavaria and Greenline, while outboard powerboats will be on display in Halls 3 and 4.
Hall 5 will be dedicated to luxury supply vessels, the so-called "chase boats" or "shadow boats", luxury boats that can accompany a superyacht on a voyage, or serve as exclusive pleasure boats, with brands such as Sacs, Wally, Frauscher, DeAntonio, Boesch, Fjord, Windy and Anvera.
The superyachts will be presented in Halls 7a and 6, where visitors can also book a mooring at one of the superyacht marinas in Venice or Porto Novi, Montenegro.
Hall 7 will be dedicated to maritime art, with large-format artwork and maritime scenes. Hall 8a will host the Beach World, where all fans of water sports (surfing, windsurfing, stand-up paddle) will be able to meet up with The Wave attractions and the Flatwater basin and an area where manufacturers will exhibit their new products.
Visitors will be able to find all the year's new semi-rigid products in Halls 10 and 11, as well as canoes, accessories, equipment and inboard motors in Halls 9 and 10.
The largest diving exhibition in the world will start on January 18 in Halls 11 and 12, as soon as the exhibition opens, with more than 400 exhibitors. Halls 13 and 14 will be dedicated to nautical tourism.
Finally, the new sailing products for 2019-2020 will be presented in three halls (15 to 17), with all the emblematic brands in the sector.
