Back for a second year, The Green Tech Boat Show will take place on 18 to 19 June at Queen Anne’s Battery, Plymouth.
At MDL, we're fully committed to a cleaner, greener future. Over the last few years, we've been truly delighted to watch the scales tip from the minority aiming to be environmentally responsible to the majority. We also know that boat owners want to see the revolution that's taking place in their work environments reflected in their leisure time.
But it's confusing. While more and more companies in the marine world are focused on bringing green technologies to the fore in practical ways to enhance sailing experiences, some consumers can struggle to unpick the sustainable options now available to them.
This is why we're putting together an event that presents the information in a practical way, showcased next to other green technologies. This will allow consumers to understand what the total offering could be, and how they can help the environment by investing in green technology today.
The show is specifically designed for boat owners wishing to make the switch to greener options, and prospective owners who’d like to start their boating journey in the most environmentally friendly way possible. You can also enjoy live music, trips around the harbour in an electrically powered ferry, and delicious food and beverage on-site.
Introduced by Melanie Symes, the Boating & Sustainability panel presented by ICOMIA looks at how the sector needs to adapt to sustainability. Each of the panellists discuss the current situation as regards to boating and sustainability; what we need to do and what we need to be aware of in terms of impact, risks and problems.
You will learn about how can we all make a difference as the panel discuss collaboration and community. You can watch the panel here.
If you don't have the chance to see us In Plymouth then do not despair because you can still view The Green Tech Virtual Boat Show.
You will be able to view all available stock from our exhibitors, chat to other visitors in the chat room, read the latest articles, watch videos and other great digital content.
