Sponsorship opportunities

First staged in 2008 as an opportunity to showcase the Island’s marine leisure industry, the show continues to grow, both in terms of size and reputation. It remains the largest free entry public event in the Channel Islands, regularly attracting in excess of 30,000 visitors over the three days.

The Barclays Jersey Boat Show draws a wide and varied audience that is fully engaged and ready to experience everything the event has to offer. We have activities and entertainment features for everyone, from the most experienced boat owner wishing to discover the latest offerings from the industry, through to curious novices and active families looking for a jam-packed fun day out. This makes it the perfect opportunity for companies to maximise their brand exposure and capitalise on the potential of the audience.

Outdoor & Active Zone

The Outdoor & Active Zone, located on the south side of the Albert Pier, was first introduced in 2011 and has since proved to be one of the most popular and successful elements of the show.


The ‘Zone’ is an area dedicated to all things activity-related, with something on offer for all ages. The area hosts a variety of leisure exhibitors
with demonstrations both on the land and in the water throughout the weekend, including pursuits such as paddle boarding, SUPs and kayaking.

Organisers are currently working on the programme of activities that will be taking place in the area, but it’s likely to include the ‘Introducing’ stage,
which made its debut in 2019 and gives young local musicians and performers the opportunity to showcase their talents.


For the duration of the Boat Show, the area will be renamed and referred to in all promotional material as the ’Company Name’ Outdoor
& Active Zone.
