Liverpool Boat Show 2011

It is great news that Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has agreed to be Chairman of the steering group that will oversee the running of the Liverpool Boat Show 2011. Sir Robin was recently quoted as saying, “I have had the pleasure of experiencing Liverpool’s sheer love of yachts and all things connected to the sea through my association with the Clipper Round the World yacht race, the Tall Ships event, and Liverpool’s year of the sea.” 

The Liverpool boat show will run from April 29th to May 8th 2011 with boats being exhibited at the Albert Dock, Salthouse Dock and Canning Dock – these make up the largest number of Grade 1 listed buildings in the UK and form part of Liverpool’s famous waterfront adjacent to the incredible Three Graces.

It seems strange that Liverpool, a city with such a rich boating and maritime history, hasn’t had such an eventy on it’s calendar before 2011. The staging of this event heralds another leap forward by a city that was in tatters 20 years ago. Liverpool’s economic progress has been rapid and the city was recently celebrated as European Capital city of Culture in 2008, and the city celebrated in style.  

It is claimed that the Liverpool boat show will become an annual event which will inject Millions of Pounds into the Liverpool economy.

Chris Rose, Owner at Serviced City Pads said, “This is another fantastic shot in the arm for the Liverpool economy, with upwards of half a million additional people visiting Liverpool each year for the Boat Show. Of course, for a company like Serviced City Pads it is great news. We will be able to offer great deals for visitors to stay in hotels in Liverpool as well as serviced apartments in Liverpool. As well as organising accommodation for paying visitors we will also be speaking to the exhibiting boat companies as well as the event organisers to arrange Liverpool hotels and apartments for their staff staying in Liverpool for the duration of the show.”

Serviced City Pads works with the vast majority of serviced apartment operators in Liverpool as well as many other cities across the UK. During 2010 we will also be adding a hotel offering that will complement our already wide range of serviced apartments. This is great news for the Serviced City Pads customer who will have an increased choice across a wider range of accommodation.
