New Zealand’s largest exhibition organiser, XPO Exhibitions has taken the helm of the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show, set to take place 16-19 May at the Auckland Showgrounds.

The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show is the largest and longest-running boat show in New Zealand with around 150 exhibitors set to take part. According to XPO, the 2024 show will be truly revitalised and reinvigorated while retaining popular elements of the show and showcasing new trends. Helen Kay, Exhibition Manager, says “that will translate to fresh new features with stacks of new content, and inspiration for our nation of marine enthusiasts, boat lovers, and fishing fanatics.” Highlights will include the new Shimano Fishing Pavilion, with cutting-edge fishing technology, and showcasing the Shimano Masterclass Series. There will also be a new floor plan to improve crowd flow and the visitor experience, and a stack of new nautically themed entertainment for the kids.
