4th August 2020
We regret to announce that given the current situation with Coronavirus we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 International Model Boat Show due to be held at the Warwickshire Event Centre.
Like many other organisers we have been watching the criteria for events unfold. Venues are only currently planned to reopen from 1st October subject to successful outcomes of the mass gathering pilot studies. There are also ongoing government restrictions in place for the continuing management of this pandemic which are subject to change at any time.
We are positive that considerable social distancing measures will need to be in place regardless. We feel these would have a significant impact on our ability to present the event to the normal size and format for everyone’s enjoyment. Therefore, we have come to the sensible and responsible decision to cancel the event until November 2021.
We are aware that our loyal supporters will be disappointed with this decision but it would not be right to organise an event that does not meet the high expectations that have been set over the last 22 years.
Any visitors who have purchased an advance ticket already will be refunded directly.

The Meridienne Team
Now in its 23rd year the International Model Boat Show is regarded as one of the leading model marine exhibitions in the country.
Visiting this exhibition is an experience not to be missed. With over 30 clubs showcasing their excellent modelling skills from early warships to cruise liners and modern power boats. They are more than happy to help you get started with your next project and offer you guidance on the best way to do this, or simply chat you about their experiences with model boat making. If you are starting a new project or just finishing one you have already started there will be specialist suppliers who will have those parts you need!
The boat pool allows the club members both novice and experienced to showcase their boats at their best on water. On the boat pool there will be the Children’s hour, this will give the opportunity for children to drive one of the boats on the water themselves.
The Tamiya Truckin arena will also be at this year’s show, providing some great live action of their 1/14 and 1/16 scale radio control model vehicles. The arena will be over 80 metres square so there will be plenty to see.
Advance tickets are available from the 1st April 2020.
Please note there are no cash machine facilities at the venue in 2020.
