British Marine front and centre at London Boat Show 2018

By | December 22, 2017


The British Marine team will be at the London Boat Show and they are looking forward to meeting with members over the course of the new and exciting 5 day format.

There is a lot of British Marine activity happening at the Show and it is a great chance to meet up with everyone. Make sure you use the benefits of the British Marine Members and Exhibitors Lounge and the returning British Marine stand, whether you are exhibiting or visiting.

British Marine Stand
Run by new Membership Executive Tom Foy (many of you will have met Tom at METS), British Marine returns to the Show floor with a stand located near the ‘British Marine presents’ Legends Theatre. The stand has a dual purpose:

• To act as a focal point for British Marine – please come and meet the team on the stand, who are there to help and offer a welcome cup of coffee. It is also an informal meeting place for members to use

• To promote careers in the marine industry – promoting careers in the industry is a fundamental part of British Marine’s role and will be a huge focus for the stand at the weekend, alongside talks on the ‘British Marine presents’ Legends Theatre. Staff will be offering advice and information to visitors

For more information on the British Marine stand at the London Boat Show, please contact Tom at tfoy@britishmarine.co.uk or 01784 223655.

British Marine Members and Exhibitors Lounge
Located in the Platinum Suite, Level 3, this will be run by Senior Membership Executive Lucy King (you should all know Lucy by now!).

The Lounge offers a quiet business environment off the Show floor where members and exhibitors can arrange meetings, catch up with some work or take five minutes away from their busy stands. There are catering facilities and WIFI and importantly the British Marine team is available for any assistance you may need.

If you would like to reserve a meeting space please contact Lucy at lking@britishmarine.co.uk or 01784 223 602.

Look for the Logo
Finally, as part of the wider campaign to promote British Marine members under the ‘Look for the Logo’ banner, the ‘British Marine presents’ Legends Theatre will be branded under ‘Look for the Logo’ and every visitor will be handed information on why they should be making their purchase from a British Marine member.

In addition to this all British Marine members exhibiting at the Show will have a floor tile next to their stand highlighting them as members. This all links in with a wider advertising and marketing campaign that puts members in the forefront of the minds of the buying public – a significant benefit of membership.

If you haven’t yet incorporated the logo into your stand design you can pick up stickers from the British Marine stand.
