Wawick International 2021 Boat Show.
« on: May 11, 2021, 05:56:08 pm »

Hi
I was wondering if any one knows if this show will be on this year?
I have had a Look at Meridienne Exhibitions website . There is no mention of the 2021 model boat show. Saying that they only go up to October 2021 on there website

One of my club members contacted them last week regarding this too and they say that they are waiting for exact details of any restrictions for later on this year so they can plan it. They say itís not cancelled and hope for it to be planned very soon.

Hi Everyone. I have been siting with my hands behind my back because it would have been inappropriate for me to reply to this thread until Meriddiene Exhibitions were ready to make an announcement. Now the news is out, I would just like to say I am looking forward to seeing everyone again and hopefully shaking many hands. Also I need my visual treat of seeing one of Martins shirts !!!!Very best regardsSteve Dean. Pool Master & Commentator.

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY

 
The INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW
One of the UKís Leading Marine Modelling Exhibitions
Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th November 2021
Warwickshire Event Centre

Meridienne Exhibitions have confirmed their intention to deliver the International Model Boat Show on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th November.

They will continue to monitor and act on advice from the Government and respond accordingly to guidance throughout the coming months, to ensure the event can safely be delivered with compliance to any Covid-19 requirements that may be in place at that time.

Tickets are expected to go on sale in late July.  Make a note in the diary now of the dates and see www.modelboatshow.co.uk for all the latest information.

As usual the show will be packed with over 600 fantastic models from over 25 club and society displays. The excellent and varied display of models from early warships to modern power boats and ships will be complemented by action on the large indoor boating pool.

Organisers expect many specialist suppliers to be present offering visitors everything they could need for their boat builds and other modelling needs.

In addition to all the boating action, the Tamiya Truckin team will be demonstrating and driving their 1/14 scale radio-controlled models on a roadway system over 80 metres square. This fantastic arena will feature radio controlled 1/14 scale trucks, plant and machinery.

Make a note in your diary now and see www.modelboatshow.co.uk for more information.

Hi Steve, originally suggested for 2019 but fell a bit flat. Have a look at the "Group build....." being the 4th/5th tread on the Model Boating section.

Cheers

It is with deep regret that due to the ongoing uncertainties of Covid-19 pandemic; we have to announce the cancellation of the 2021 International Model Boat Show which was due to be held at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the 6th & 7th November.

This difficult decision is taken despite a real determination by the Meridienne Exhibitions team, trade, clubs and other supporters, all striving to continue to deliver the usual high quality and successful event during this very difficult time.

Over the past few weeks, we have been in the excruciating position of considering every possible scenario to see how we might be able to proceed, but sadly the risks of holding the event now far outweigh the reasons for going ahead.

The core decision is based on the escalating cases of COVID-19, and the risks that widespread illness and self-isolation could have on everyone involved. We have navigated our way over the past 16 months through obstacles, but now feel that the odds are stacked against us and we are no longer in a position to be able to proceed safely with the unknown government Covid-19 requirement for Autumn/Winter ahead.

We look forward to seeing you all again in the future and thank you for your support.

Outdoor shows would seem to be the obvious solution. Only for the summer months though. The Southern Model Airshow when it was still at the Hop Farm was such a good show.
