Ready to take your boat and props to the biggest boating event in Greece this October 15 to 23? Those are the set dates for the 33rd Athens International Boat Show, which will be hosted in the Metropolitan Expo at the Athens International Airport. This is also where the boat show was held two years ago. Where else could the Athens International Boat Show be held but in a modern, state-of-the-art exhibition center like the Metropolitan Expo?
Because the Metropolitan Expo is easy to access, getting there won’t be a problem. In fact, the directions have already been laid out; all you have to do is pick which one is most convenient to you. There’s even free transportation!
The preparations for the boat show are underway, and so far, the goal of the show is clear: to promote yachting and encourage boating enthusiasts to set sail en route to their favorite destinations.
For nine days, the boat show will be a venue not only for the best and most innovative boats, but also the latest news concerning the industry. Because the boating industry is of national importance to Greece, you can expect this festival to be a coordinated effort of the government, the boating industry, and boaters themselves.
A few activities that you can look forward to this event include sport fishing, professional fishing, extreme sports, boating, sea sport, diving, and yachting. Promising to cut across all sectors and segments of boating, the Athens International Boat Show will be a gathering of epic boating proportions!
The admission fee for adults is 8 Euros, while kids under 12 can get in for free. Why don’t you take your kids with you? Come to think of it, this is the perfect opportunity to show them how exciting boating is… in Greek and beyond!
Aside from the strong presence of local companies, you can also expect a lot of international contenders to be present in this year’s boat show. Organized by the EXPO One Exhibition Organizing Company in cooperation with the Greek Manufacturers of Plastic Sea Vessels Related Accessories and Services Association (SEKAPLAS PEEY), international organizations like the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers (IFBSO) and International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) will also be highly present during the event.
