Considered the most important boat show in the Adriatic area, the Venice International Boat Show will take place from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th and Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd April, 2012.

Two not-to-be-missed weekends for those passionate about boats who will have the opportunity to see and test drive the boats on show in the enchanting Venice lagoon.

The 2012 edition of the Boat Show will take place over two weekends due the success registered last year and will join forces with the Jesolo Nautic Show: a 360 degree exhibition on the boating world.

The location of the 11th Boat Show will be Parco San Giuliano, overlooking the Venice lagoon at the entrance of the city of Mestre where an exhibition area will be set up with marquees, open-air stalls and marinas arranged along a coherent exhibition path. The Venice boat show aims at becoming one of the most important appointments for entry boating, thanks also to its location on the mainland, ideal to attract both seasoned boat trippers and aficionados who are just starting out in the boating world.

In order to offer all enthusiasts a complete overview of the boating world there will be an extra area dedicated to water sports with kayaks, canoes and dinghies.

The Venice Boat Show is also giving attention to bigger boats with an exhibition of models up to 12 metres ideal for those who are making their first purchase.

Together with the more prestigious international brands with big yachts as well as small ones, the Venice Boat Show will also present in Venice boats for the charter sector for the oncoming summer.
