Question Answer  
How are you going to make sure the public follow the regulations of wearing masks at all times? 3m / 4m aisles and social distancing monitoring by boarder control security guards.  Dedicated safety officer in each zone. Signage and Messaging in each zone.



Are snowpeaks weather proof? Yes. They are the same as normal marquees with all four sides that can close.   
So basically between every session all the visitors will be removed from the venue? Yes that is correct. The venue will completely cleaned in between each session. The session ending will be annouced over the PA system and all visitors will be cleared out of the venue.   
What about social distancing on the jetty which is narrow? We will be implementing a one way traffic system on the jetties to avoid big crowds in the waterspace. Boarder control guards will also be in place to ensure people are keeping to the 1.5 social distancing rules.   
Will the Exhibitors on the water be sanitizing our own vessels between sessions? Yes. We will do all the communial areas and exhibitors will be responsible for wiping down and sanitzing everything within their own space. Boat cleaning in the past has always been the responsobility of the individual companies anyways so we are just asking for exhibitors to ensure the clenaing is done in the session breaks instead of during the show.

“Thank you to TEAM BOAT SHOW 2018 for your sterling, well organized 2018 exhibition.” Mega Marine

“Thank you for a very successful boat show! We made some very fruitful contacts and it looks like we already have a job for next year!”

“On behalf of Maizey Plastics and Plexiglas we wish to thank you to your team for a wonderful show.”

“My first Boat Show Experience was AMAZING, but this is especially due to the support from the Organisers! Your Team was so well organised and very informative, they were all beyond helpful and very ready to assist in the most friendliest manner.”

“The Cape Town International Show was our first attendance and it was exceptionally planned well and the location is the utmost best location. We managed to convert 23 people to become Greenpeace supporters and a lot more who signed our save our oceans partitions. Greenpeace would defiantly consider attendance on the 2020 Event”

“Being our first show, we had a great time and a lot more interest than we thought. Our stand was busy and we managed to pick up 4 more new deck orders and have sent out a few quotes since the show too. We met some wonderful people who were also exhibiting and made a lot of contacts for future business. Looking forward to the 2020 Boatica!”

“On behalf of SLL, a big “Thank You” for making a stand available to us during the Boat Show. While we didn’t raise millions of Rands, we did collect some money, and, more importantly, I think we made some good connections and leads to future prospective donors.”

“I think your company taking over is very positive and I look forward to being able to justify attending again in future we because we got great “value” out of our participation.”
