RACV Marine Melbourne Boat Show

In 2019, the RACV Marine Melbourne Boat Show will be celebrating its 59th year of operation, promoting recreational boating, safe boating practises and the Life’s Better With A Boat message. The show is Victoria’s annual celebration of the positive and rewarding lifestyle that boating provides.

Taking place at the state-of-the-art event venue, the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC), the RACV Marine Melbourne Boat Show welcomes visitors locally, nationally and internationally each year, and is a major event on Melbourne’s calendar.

Presented by the Boating Industry Association of Victoria, the event is the largest and premier boat show in Victoria, attracting boaters, water sport enthusiasts, fishing aficionados and non-boaters alike, state-wide, nationally and internationally.

Last year, the site space was over-subscribed and sold out well in advance of the show. Visitor levels were up 2% from the previous year and both exhibitor and visitor satisfaction levels were high.
