Organisers of the Sydney TrailerBoat & Outdoor Leisure Show are pleased that the move has been so welcomed by the industry.
With less than six weeks to go until the doors open, the BIA of NSW has reported that only limited space remains. The large span of undercover space will treat the visiting audience to some of the industry’s leading brands of products and services as well as the retailers who sell them.

Apart from being able to see a great array of boating gear and gear for them, visitors can take their kids along to the GWS Giants Kids Zone, visit the Supertank presentations which will also feature the Nautilus Boating stars that will be on hand to speak to and meet the public.
