Poole Maritime Festival 2017
Tall Ship Maybe by James M Pilgrim
Four fantastic events in one!
European Maritime Day, a Business Events and Trade Fair, a Maritime Festival and the Poole Harbour Boat Show come together in 2017 to make Poole in Dorset the centre of everything maritime for a weekend, for businesses and for families.
If you’re visiting for pleasure, the maritime festival is sure to have something for you, whether that be in the AquaZone, the KidsZone, the TechZone, the Food & Drink Zone, the ArtZone, the GoZone, or even up on the main stage, there’s sure to be countless demonstrations, simulations, workshops, competitions, sports, exhibitions, performances, tasters and more taking place throughout the event. Still not satisfied? Perhaps you’d like to step aboard a historic tall ship, purchase a brand new yacht or simply relax as a regatta sails by, no problem, simply head over to the Boat Show.
If you’re visiting for business there’s just as much to see, with many key players from the European maritime industry all coming together for the annual European Maritime Day conference addressing environmental issues, sustainability, employment, innovation and more. The Business and Trade Fair will be sure to compliment this, with the opportunity to meet, network and trade with maritime businesses of all sizes from across the south of England. There’ll even be business directed workshops on offer covering a range of key areas.
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
