Event setting an example of impressive architectural design
The Boat Show will fill all seven halls of the Exhibition & Convention Centre. The brand-new Hall 7 will be in use for the first time, providing the event with an additional 15,000 m² of exhibition space. The spacious and light-filled multi-purpose hall provides excellent opportunities for creative and innovative event designs. In all, the halls of the Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Centre now offer some 58,000 m² of exhibition space.
A new exhibition – Vene 12 Båt Design – will be organised for the first time at this year's Boat Show. As part of this exhibition, four acclaimed Finnish designers will redecorate the interiors of four motorboats. In particular, their solutions will emphasise design, functionality, ecological concerns and comfort.
The 2012 Helsinki International Boat Show is being realised in cooperation with Finnish boat manufacturers. The goal of the exhibition is to navigate a fresh course for the Finnish boating industry as well as identify ways with which we can distinguish ourselves from the competition, strengthen the cooperation between Finnish designers and boat manufacturers, and provide consumers with access to new and more individual interior design solutions.
