This year's Genoa International Boat Show will take place from September 16-21

Italian marine industry association Confindustria Nautica has announced that this year’s 61st Genoa International Boat Show  will take place from September 16-21, 2021. The 2020 edition of the show was one of the few industry events to have taken place during the Covid-19 pandemic this year, attracting 71.168 visitors and displaying 824 brands. 

The global event acts as an essential tool for supporting businesses on an international scale while also showcasing the very best that the ‘Made in Italy’ brand has to offer. Meanwhile, Confindustria Nautica’s Market Intelligence Department has provided a framework analysis of current trends concerning the boating market, thanks to a survey carried out amongst its members. Each company was given a questionnaire to fill out relating to their revenue in 2020 and their sentiment with regards to the current nautical year (2020/21). With regards to the estimated closing trends for the year 2020, the results from the questionnaire given to members confirm what was already apparent at the end of the boating season – namely, a clear dichotomy splitting the industrial component and nautical tourism companies.
