BBC News – New event ‘may replace cancelled Liverpool Boat Show’.

Let’s hope so…

Talks are under way to decide if an alternative event can be staged instead of the cancelled Liverpool Boat Show.

Organisers Marine Industry Events (MIE) called off the event blaming severe market conditions after a poor showing at January’s London Boat Show.

The 10-day event was expected to bring 400,000 visitors to the region in April.

Discussions between Liverpool council and local partners have started to see if another event can be arranged.

MIE will have no involvement in any new plans.

Max Steinberg, chief executive of Liverpool Vision, said: “We have already started to consider what we can do to minimise the economic impact of the cancellation of the Liverpool Boat Show.
