Expectations are that the Palma International Boat Showwhich will be held from April 28 to May 1 at the port’s Moll Vell, will exceed 227 exhibitors and 185 boats in 2021. The registration process is now coming to an end, and the entire Moll Vell site will be occupied.
The organizers are the Institute of Business Innovation (IDI) and the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association. The IDI falls under the Ministry of Productive Sectors, which says the show has become the event that opens the nautical season and is one of the most important ways for international companies looking to establish themselves in the Balearic Islands and open up new business opportunities.
The Minister, Juan Pedro Yllanes, who is also vice-president of the government, highlights the fact that the recovery after the pandemic is “visible”. “We are putting the Balearic Islands back on the map thanks to the organization of this event, which this year receives more requests than ever.”
“The nautical sector and its industry are, along with aspects related to energy transition and innovation, essential factors in the economic diversification sought by the government. We want to continue on this path.”
An anticipated highlight of the show will be the presentation of new products and boats which exhibitors were unable to showcase as the events were subject to Covid restrictions. The characteristics of the show will be the Palma Superyacht Villagewith yachts of 24 meters or more, and the Refit & Repair section.
Tickets to visit the show can now be purchased via https;//palmainternationalboatshow.com. For professionals in the nautical sector, packages are available for the entire event.
