RUNNING from September 30 to October 5, the 55th Genoa Boat show was much more upbeat than last year’s rather dismal event
In his opening address, the Italian Deputy Industry Minister Carlo Calenda said “The Genoa Boat Show is no longer sad, as last year, but has been relaunched as has the boating sector.
“This is the fair of the recovery. It’s a show that strives for excellence and looks to the international market. It’s a show made for businesses. There is a strong feeling that (we’re) turning a new page,” he added.
With a total of 760 exhibitors showing around 1,000 boats and nautical products the show was considered a success and a positive pointer for the future of boating.
