About the Exhibition

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 International Model Boat Show will be returning from Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November to the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.

The show will as usual provide visitors with a packed exhibition hall with over 600 fantastic models from over 25 club and society displays. The excellent and varied display of models from early warships to modern power boats and ships will be complemented by action on the large indoor boating pool.

This year will also see the development of the show with the introduction of a Tamiya Truckin display arena. This will integrate a very closely linked hobby to the core model boat show, and also introduce a new selection of exhibitors and interests. We have decided to develop the show, to continue to expand the appeal of the event, and we believe a lot of clubs and associations will welcome this diversification to grow the show in this and future years.

The Tamiya Truckin team will be demonstrating and driving their 1/14 scale radio controlled models on a roadway system over 80 metres square. This fantastic arena will feature radio controlled 1/14 scale trucks, plant and machinery.

Where club exhibits have been previously limited to model boats, organisers expect to see a wider variety of models being displayed in 2017.

Over twenty specialist suppliers will also be present offering visitors everything they could need for their boat builds and other modelling needs.

Make a date in your diary now for this event Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November – tickets will be on sale in late Spring.
