Thousands of customers navigating to BoatExpo this autumn


BoatExpo 2017, coming up this November, will bring some exciting events to Father’s Day weekend. The event will bring together active boaters and enthusiasts from both the coast and lake region, as well as many summer residents from the Turku archipelago. The expo will feature the 2018 season’s newest boat models and supplies and services for boaters.

Last autumn, the BoatExpo enthralled fair visitors and media alike, bringing together close to 6,000 visitors and a large number of journalists. A broad array of motor boat models was first introduced during the fair weekend and sailing was high on the agenda.

According to a consumer survey conducted at the event, every fifth visitor came to the expo intending to purchase a boat and more than 60% reported that the expo impacted their purchase decision. Almost all of the survey’s respondents (96%) said they would be back the next year. The survey responses reflected in particular an interest in sailboats and boating equipment, and respondents hoped they would see more of these at the next event. Based on the exhibitor survey, 91% of companies felt that they had reached their target audience and would participate again in the expo.
