This year’s Helsinki International Boat Show, which ended on Sunday at the Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre, indicated clearly that there’s plenty of demand for boats and boating supplies on the Scandinavian market as almost 77,000 visitors came to the fair.

The Helsinki International Boat Show further strengthened its status as the major event for boating and other aquatic past times.  Some exhibitors even think that the fair exceeded their expectations:

“Visitor’s high regard for quality in boat manufacturing was clearly evident. We could also notice that the visitors’ standard was correspondingly high at this year’s Boat Show,”  says the Managing Director of Finngulf Yachts.

The Exhibitors were quite satisfied with the Boat Show and the commercial success of the fair encouraged them to start planning for next year. Even before this year’s event ended, around 50 exhibitors signed up for the next Helsinki International Boat Show, which is to be held in February 2011,.
