Not sure how that will work. Not a lot of space on the water or land + when I took it over back in 2008 I had to jump through hoops to get everything approved. expensive car park charges, not a lot of cheap reasonable quality accomodation.By far the best place would be Port Solent. The workboat show started there 20 years ago and was ok. loads of free parking, 3 hotels close by and masses of space on the land. Alan P

It wont be a small show, they are taking over the whole of the Gun Wharf area, going right back through to the shopping areas, They have gone through all the right channels and the whole site is dedicated to RIBEX for attended dates. From the plans that I have seen I have to say it will transform the show, giving it a fresh look, revamp and have something for everyone on display.

The excitement from the industry has been fantastic and preparations have already started.

Im not involved with the show, so cant give details, however from what I have seen it looks good.

Good to see a new venue, went along last year and was a little dissapointed (and that is being polite), so didnt go this.
As long as the date doesnt clash will almost certainly go along to Pompey

I have run big events at Gunwharf and I have taken over the whole site and it is hard work. A lot of people complain about the car parking charges. Wish HMS luck but I feel it is the wrong place. If he is expecting any help from PCC, forget it., Anything they give him will not be worth the aggro. I read in the News last night that it has been "Portsmouth Ambition" to hold a big boat show. Personaly I feel they should run the city properly first!!!! AP

Heard it on the local radio HMS saying fed up of being treated like a second rate show compared to the Festivals not sure what he was on about .


Gunwharf not sure its the right place either .
