The 2013 Marine Resources Boat Show Party, held on Thursday 19th September, was once again a resounding success. Around 450 people attended the event, raising over £620 for our nominated charities, CRY and The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.
So far the Boat Show parties have managed to raise over £5,000 for these great charities, thanks to everyone involved! The night started off well with the America’s Cup showing on the big screens; and the glow in the dark glasses proved a popular hit on the dance floor.
Exhibitors and industry professionals danced the night away at our new exciting venue, POPworld, until the early hours of the morning – letting off some steam after a busy week at the PSP Southampton Boat Show 2013. We drew the raffle on the night and some fantastic prizes were won.
Marine Resources would like to thank all the generous companies who donated raffle prizes as well as Printing Crazy, SLAM, The London Boat Show and 2ndHandDinghies.com for their continued support. A special thanks has to go to the team at POPworld, Southampton for helping make the night a success.
James Ward, Managing Director of Marine Resources said: “This event just gets bigger and better every year. We are always really pleased to offer an event for all the boat show exhibitors and other marine industry people to get together and have some fun. It really is those guys who come along who make the night. The atmosphere is always buzzing and we are more than happy to keep putting it on as long as people want to come”.
