Read Statement from the organisers below:
BIA President Darren Vaux said the decision was made more difficult because the Sydney Festival of Boating was sold-out regarding exhibition space and was oversubscribed for the event marina.
“The BIA believed the responsible action was to weigh up the facts, liaise with stakeholders such as our members, government and the venue partner, the International Convention Centre, and to make a decision this week,” Vaux said.
“Cancelling the event supports government efforts to get the current outbreak of COVID-19 and its highly-contagious Delta variant under control. It also recognises the likely challenges that our local and interstate members and exhibitors will encounter over the coming weeks.
“Our priority was to deliver a celebration of the boating lifestyle and to do so in a COVID Safe way for our members, suppliers, exhibitors and public.”
“It was a difficult decision to cancel the event, especially as there was such strong industry support.”
The Sydney Festival of Boating will be held at the International Convention Centre between 29 July and 1 August 2021 and will occupy the upper-level halls, together with undercover exhibitor displays on the Event Deck. The festival will also feature a marina in Cockle Bay which will accommodate larger on-water displays and the promenade leading to Tumbalong Park with feature festival activations and displays.
The BIA looks forward to resuming the Sydney International Boat Show in 2022, the southern hemisphere’s largest and most comprehensive boating show.
