WW to organise the Crick Boat Show


We're delighted to announce that Waterways World will be organising next year's Crick Boat Show.

The 2011 event will, as ever, take place on the May Bank Holiday weekend (28th-30th May) at Crick Marina on the Grand Union Canal.

WW's publisher Peter Johns explains: "We are really pleased to be associated with the Crick Boat Show. The event has been a great success for many years and we want to build upon that success to make it an even bigger stage for boaters, aspiring boaters and the many waterways related businesses who exhibit at the Show. As the country’s longest established and best selling inland waterways magazine we believe that there is untapped potential which will allow us to develop the Show to make it a real showcase for the inland waterways."

Simon Salem, marketing director at British Waterways, added: "The magazine’s publishers have a good track record of organising and managing shows which, together with their industry knowledge and involvement, makes them an ideal partner to take the Crick Boat Show forward."

The exhibitor pack for the 2011 Show will be available from November 2010 and will be sent automatically to those who exhibited at the 2010 Show. Exhibitor telephone enquiries should be made to Ian Sharpe at Waterways World, at ian.sharpe@wwonline.co.uk or on 01283 742977.
