Visitors to this year's Schroders London Boat Show exceeded 213,000, which is up on the original figure

Visitors to this year’s Schroders London Boat Show who experienced the delights of the popular new venue at ExCel, probably won’t be too surprised at the latest projected show attendance figures. According to the show organisers, the final ABC audit certificate is now likely to show an attendance of 213,500 visitors compared to 210,300 reported on the closing day of the Show.

The final audited ABC figure for the show will be available from the end of March. This figure compared to that released at Earls Court last year of 145,000 visitors means there’s been an upturn of 47 per cent – an increase not knowingly achieved by any other consumer show.
