Boatshow set to bring economic outcome

10:11pm, Mon 22 Aug 2011
With the Whitsunday Boat and Lifestyle Show by the Rotary Club Of Airlie Beach set to roll out on the 10/11th of September, the economic and tourism benefits are easily forecast.

Demographic survey, past results, combined with advertising spend on a major event weekend forecast arrival in Airlie Beach of 3500+ out of town boat show goers.

Demographic survey
In an ongoing ticket give away on, there is a clear trend toward 60% of show attendees set to come from outside the 4802 postcode area. Free ticket registrants come from as far away as Rottnest Island, Western Australia, while it is expected that upwards of 7% will come from each of Mackay and Townsville regions.

Past Results
Past results for the Whitsunday Boat Show, previously held in the cold month of June showed the willingness of 6000 or more people to come out and visit this great event.

Advertising Spend on a major event weekend
With the Whitsunday Boat and Lifestyle Show being held on the same weekend as the Great Whitsunday Fun Race, the co-operative marketing efforts of the Whitsunday Sailing Club and Rotary Club of Airlie Beach have informed virtually every part of the Queensland central coast region including coal mine region by print, radio, TV, Internet and social media.

Exhibitors interested in presenting their product, service or offering to a large number of people in one weekend, have to secure their position quickly. Space is rapidly running out in the show area including marina, hardstand, or under the big top.

The Rotary Club of Airlie Beach would like to thank with generous appreciation the support of these show exhibitors:
