London Yacht Show 2019 is cancelled
The newly launched London Yacht Show has been postponed until 2020.
In a statement, organisers Informa Global Events, said the decision had been made to ensure the delivery of a high quality on-water show, with the scale and breadth to attract full participation of the industries it is aimed at.
The event was rebranded and relaunched earlier this year with a focus on the high-end boating and luxury goods market - building on the previous London On Water Show.
“Since an initial burst of interest in the London Yacht Show, take-up has slowed from some segments of the industry and from luxury brands,” said Andrew Williams, president maritime group.
“With just over a month to go until the planned launch, overall commitment to the event is not at the level required to deliver a show with the profile, scale and market breadth the industry asked for and deserves in London.
“Following extensive consultation with key stakeholders, we therefore believe it is in everyone’s interest to postpone the show until next year.”
And he said efforts will now be focused on delivering a ‘great event and experience’ in 2020.
The London Yacht Show was scheduled to take place at St. Katharine Docks from May 8 – 12 2019.
It was intended to provide the opportunity to show yachts on water, alongside a floating luxury pavilion.
