STRICTLY SAIL PACIFIC LATEST SHOW UPDATES
Exhibitor sales at Strictly Sail Pacific exceeded original estimates, leading to the expansion of the floorplan to accommodate 30 more exhibitors at the upcoming sail boat show slated for April 15-18, 2010 in Oakland, CA.
According to Sail America Executive Director Jonathan Banks, space in the climate-controlled Barnes & Noble storefront which houses the indoor exhibitor hall, was bursting at the seams and reached capacity, leading the show management team to study all available options. A new tent was secured and has been positioned in the heart of Jack London Square to accommodate the brisk demand.
We are very pleased by the high degree of interest and support for Strictly Sail Pacific, said Banks. The show is continuing the trend set at some of the winter shows and indicates a healthy degree of optimism by our exhibitors.
Strictly Sail Pacific is shaping up to be a strong show across the board.
The marina features new boats from leading manufacturers, including two brand new models making their West Coast debut: the 57 Jeanneau bluewater passagemaker, and the 39 Hunter cruiser.
Besides the new boats, premium pre-owned boats will also be showcased, along with hundreds of new products, gear and accessories including 35 brand new offerings, along with numerous new programs from service and school providers.
Show organizers have a full agenda of exciting activities to intrigue the public ranging from several free sail boat rides, to tours, 100+ seminars, celebrity appearances, kids events, parties and more.
Show marketing is well underway and includes a mix of print, web and broadcast media, along with solid public relations, targeted e-blasts and aggressive social media initiatives. A marketing toolkit was also made available for exhibitors.
In addition, a general members meeting is scheduled to run in conjunction with the show on Friday, April 16 from 8 9:45 including complimentary breakfast. See accompanying story in this edition for details.
