New at Palma International Boat Show 2024

The 2024 edition of the Palma International Boat Show will witness an important milestone: the implementation of sustainable measures that seek to consolidate the event as a benchmark in the nautical industry. Sustainability certification will be the focal point, with initiatives aimed at reducing the carbon footprint, managing waste efficiently and promoting sustainable practices among exhibitors, suppliers and visitors. This effort marks a significant step towards the goal of certifying the ISWP as a fully sustainable event.

Measuring economic impact will also be a first for this edition. In order to better understand the event’s contribution to the industry and the local community, conferences, industry days and a special celebration will be held to recognise the continued support of businesses.

In addition, on 26 April, activities have been programmed on the site to commemorate the 40th anniversary with the participation of visitors and exhibitors. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., fairgoers will be able to enjoy live music and performances by entertainment groups. From 8 p.m. onwards, exhibitors are expected to take centre stage at the celebration, which will culminate with a drone show visible from various parts of the city.

Detailed information on these new features and events can be found on the official 40th anniversary website.
