British Marine members will know that the Boat Shows offer the British Marine Membership & Services team (External Relations, International Development, Membership, Technical and Training) a fantastic opportunity to not only catch-up with lots of members, but also deliver many of the great benefits and support programmes available to the membership.
British Marine and a number of its Group and Region associations used this year's new five-day London Boat Show to great effect. There were industry stats and project launches, association AGMs, networking events, stakeholder meetings, collaborative working groups, speeches, presentations, introductions, awards and much much more. Here's a little visual taste of what British Marine and its associations got up to. Enjoy!
