The Palma International Boat show is making a return this year on the 3rd to 6th June 2021. Taking place in Moll Vell Marina, which offers a fantastic backdrop of the La Seu Cathedral.
Due to the coronavirus, the Palma International Boat show held in Mallorca was cancelled last year. The 2020 edition was set to be the biggest event yet in the history of the boat shows. This comes just 2 years after it celebrated its 35th edition, where each year it has become increasing bigger, with around 45,000 people, both tourists and locals coming to visit the show each year.
Boats & Exhibitors
The Palma International Boat Show has become one of the most important shows in the yachting industry in Europe. The event showcases around 600 boats. Running alongside the Palma International boat show is the Palma Superyacht show which hosts around 100 super yachts over 24 metres.
There will be around 260 exhibitors from the nautical sector such as recruitment agencies for crew looking for work, yacht maintenance and repair companies, yacht brokers and charter companies and much more!
Planning to be set up at the Palma Super Yacht Show to provide free drinking water from their refill stations is the Cleanwave movement! The founders of Cleanwave ( a non-profit initiative) set out to find an alternative solution to single use plastic water bottles. The initiative grew very quickly, this led to educational programs, a documentary, public water foundations and more. As a result, the Cleanwave Movement was born! You can check out more about them on their website or our blog!
Rules and regulations this year
Obviously this year we will see a whole new event at the Palma International Boat Show due to current COVID protocols that will need to be followed.
The preparations are underway to hold the event next month. The event will go ahead as planned as long as Mallorca is classed in the low risk category.
Measures will be in place for the safety of exhibitors, staff and visitors to avoid contacting the virus. There will be a strict control of capacity which must not exceed 1500 people. There will also be temperature checks and online ticket sales to avoid queues and crowds of people. A team will be around the event to ensure both visitors and exhibitors abide by the rules and regulations, to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment.
This boat show will be very different to previous years for sure. But we are still certain it will be a success for all. Safety measures will be in place but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying yourself!
We wish the organisers the best of luck! We hope it will be a great success and enjoyment for everyone who attends and is involved!
