Strategy and new dates for the 60th Genoa International Boat Show (1st -6th october 2020)

9 April 2020

Genoa, 9th April 2020: The Governing Board of Confindustria Nautica and Board of Directors of I Saloni Nautici, having discussed the matter with the Regional Authorities and those of the city of Genoa, have declared that, in view of the current circumstances, a plan will be put in motion for extraordinary measures to be adopted for the 2020 edition of the Genoa International Boat Show, which will see the design of a flexible layout that can adapt to the various post-crisis scenarios.

The decision to postpone the 60th edition of the global trade fair from September to the following month (1st – 6th October) is to be integrated with a plan of action that will be aimed at predicting and satisfying all potential regulations that may be in place in October, including the possibility of the event taking place over a longer period of 9 days (from Saturday 3rd to Sunday 11th) in order to best manage the flow of participants in view of health and safety concerns. For this purpose, measures will also include the design of wide open spaces and multiple entrance points. These along with all other initiatives that may be implemented will ensure the best conditions for organising and managing the event and for welcoming visitors and exhibitors alike.
