New Boat Show Calculator


For the first time in boat show history, companies wishing to exhibit can now find out exactly what the overall cost will be to participate in a trade fair.

Following expert development, German Marine Industry Association DBSV has now made available the so called Boat Show Calculator, which allows its users to calculate all costs involved in exhibiting at a boat show. The calculator is supported by ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations) and IFBSO (International Council of Boat Show Organisers).

All possible expenditure, from ceiling suspensions and power connections to forklift trucks and press material presentations, has been taken into consideration. A currency calculator is also provided on the website to give accurately the boat show costs in different currencies.

The free-of-charge Boat Show Calculator is easy to use and offers the option of sorting trade fairs via region.

The listed shows are IFBSO members or national Marine Industry Association owned or affiliated shows. They all conform to the IFBSO and ICOMIA Code of Excellence. If you are one of these member boatshows and would like to be included in the Boat Show Calculator, please contact
