The organisers of the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show have confirmed that the 2022 show will be held, as scheduled, at the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane on May 12-15.

This follows the announcement that the Showgrounds’ landlord, the Cornwall Park Trust Board, has appointed the NZ Exhibition & Events Company to operate the Showgrounds as New Zealand’s premier events and exhibition venue.

Boat Show general manager, Dave Gibbs, says the announcement is a great result.

“As New Zealand’s longest-running, largest and most popular show, we know how much the industry, and the boating public, rely on and look forward to the show being held in May each year.”

Dave says planning is already underway for the 2022 show, which is widely-acknowledged as the best boat show in Australasia.

The 2021 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show, held in May this year, attracted 39,094 and saw many exhibitors sell record numbers of boats and marine and fishing equipment.
