Excel will host 2014 Boat Show
Luxurious yachts and stunning sea vessels will return to the Docklands next year after a date was set for the 2014 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show.
The announcement, made by National Boat Shows and the British Marine Federation, confirmed the Excel Arena as the host venue for next year's showcase following a positive response from visitors.
But it was revealed the organisations had considered staging an alternative show in Canary Wharf.
However, feedback from this year's event at the Excel, coupled with consultation with industry leaders, were said to be the reasons for retaining the status quo.
A Canary Wharf Group spokesperson said: "The London Boat Show approached us about staging a potential boat show at Canary Wharf and Wood Wharf.
"We understand they wish to continue in their existing location and wish them well."
To avoid any clashes with the Dusseldorf Boat Show, next year's extravaganza will run from January 4 to 12.
