La Regata - Spanish Tapas Bar & Restaurant, Southampton - Town Quay the owners seem to be Spanish and were very pleasant. Good food and vibe in there when we stopped off

Went around the Show yesterday and today. Attendance seemed quiet both days but it's good for the visitors without all the hustle and bustle. Expected to be busier over this final weekend.

Warm and dry at the Show today but attendance appeared to me to be well down on the same (penultimate) day as last year and with the weather forecasted for tomorrow, I had expected it be very busy today.

Chatting to many of the exhibitors the general feel was that the last few days had picked-up but up until then attendances had been poor, along with few sales/serious prospects, however, most simply shrugged their shoulders and said that they had to be seen to be at the show, i.e. more a marketing exercise than a direct sales opportunity and exhibitors generally except that "people come to touch n feel but then go back and buy on the web".

It's interesting to me that many attendees still feel that the boat show is the place for 'bargains' but it is clear that the cost of exhibiting means that exhibitors will struggle to cover their costs let alone be in a position to give away margins.....worrying trend for LIBS

I've been today and going back tomorrow.
First time I've been to a boat show and couldn't find anything I was after.
Spoke to the rep on the mercruiser stand and this year they have no spares with them at all so still after gear oil.
Marine carpet there were a couple of stands but no one with stock with them.
Trailer manufacturers only seemed to have complete trailers no rollers ect to buy.
I did manage to get a prop bag though
Perhaps I was expecting to much.
