The boat show, organised by the IDI and BYBA, returns to its traditional dates and will be held from the 28th of April to the 1st of May 2022 in Palma’s Moll Vell.
The next edition of the Palma International Boat Show, to be held from 28th April to 1st May 2022, will represent the consolidation of normality after a few years of uncertainty caused by the pandemic. With less than two months to go before it opens, the marketing process is being finalised for the fair, which will have the entire Palma Moll Vell site occupied. The fair is organised by the Institute for Business Innovation of the Balearic Islands (IDI), a body dependent on the Vice-Presidency and Regional Ministry of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory, and by the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA).

It is worth highlighting the interest that this upcoming edition has awakened among local and national companies. In fact, in recent years the Palma International Boat Show has become the event that opens the nautical season and one of the most important gateways for international companies that want to establish themselves on the islands or establish relationships with local firms to open up new business opportunities. The current level of marketing is expected to exceed the 227 exhibitors and 185 boats that the event had in the last edition, which was the first fair in the sector to be held in person after the COVID-19.

The vice-president and councillor for Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory, Juan Pedro Yllanes, indicated that “the recovery after the pandemic is already visible. We are putting the Balearic Islands back on the map thanks to the organisation of this event, which this year is receiving more requests. In fact, the great reception at a national level is increasing the level of marketing of exhibitors. The nautical sector and its industry are, along with those aspects related to energy transition or innovation, a vital factor in the economic diversification that the Government is seeking. We want to continue on this path”.

One of the highlights of this year’s Palma International Boat Show is the presentation of new products and boats on a global scale. Many exhibitors will unveil at the Palma show the new products that they have not been able to present in recent years due to the lack of suitable forums because of health restrictions.

As for the offer, it is expected to be very complete and diverse, aspects that have always characterised the Palma show, as it has different areas, such as new boats, equipment and products, services and charters, among others. The Palma International Boat Show includes the Palma Superyacht Village, which showcases superyachts over 24 metres in length from the international brokerage and charter market, as well as an area dedicated to Refit & Repair, aimed at experts and professionals in the nautical industry.
