THE Palma International Boat Show closed its doors on Sunday June 6 after four busy days of commercial activity and messing about in boats.
The fair was considered a key piece in the reactivation of the sector after the pandemic, since it was the first in-person event in the sector to be held at the European level since the beginning of 2020.
More than 16,000 people visited during the four days, always without exceeding the capacity allowed by the Covid-19 protocol, and respecting safety regulations to avoid infections.
According to the organisers, many of their exhibitors confirmed that they had made sales and had a successful show.
Boating is an important industry within the Balearics as according to the latest data, the sector has some 2,000 companies and 5,000 people registered with the Islands Social Security and therefore it is important to see the sector back up and promoting the industry.
The Palma International Boat Show had 227 exhibitors and more than 185 boats at sea, in an area of more than 80,000 square metres and this year, it was combined with the virtual Balearic Yacht Show.
