Coming off a successful boat show in Lagos, GALAXIA Boats is back at Marina de Lagos for the second edition of the GALAXIA Boat Show from May 12-14.
With new areas full of the latest electric boats, technology, and water toys from the best sustainable brands on the market, the GALAXIA Boat Show is set to be the perfect event to kick off the European summer boating season.
GALAXIA is bringing back three headline partners in a more impactful way in 2023 – including X Shore, who will be hosting the Electric ‘Day Cruiser’ & Activity Zone. Torqeedo, the market leader for electric mobility on the water, will be joining as host of the new ‘Sailing village & Technical Zone’.
Additional headline partnerships have been signed by Aqua superPower & BoatCenter, a national dealer of electric RAND boats and Greenline hybrid boats.
Say organisers: “GALAXIA continues to be at the forefront of the electric revolution, utilizing its manufacturer contacts globally to create awareness and inspiration within and around the e-marine industry.
“The 2023 boat show stands to be the largest and most focused collection of electric boats in Europe, with an estimated 20,000 attendees. Galaxia crosses genres of a traditional boat show and a festival environment, with live internationally renowned music, creating a new type of boat show that celebrates the ocean, the lifestyle, and the cleaner technology boating revolution.”
Immersive content will include new boat launches, test drives, a technical showcase, eMobility, sunset champagne cruises, a Wakeboard ‘Wakebombing Big Air’ Competition, electric cars, and much more.
The first day of GALAXIA will be focused on promoting a dialogue of protecting the BlueEconomy and sustainability of our oceans via the ‘GALAXIA Interstella Conference’, held in partnership with Marina de Lagos. The conference will be an interactive forum for electric boat manufacturers, industry professionals, infrastructure providers, government officials, and students to share best practices, identify barriers, and foster a community of working relationships.
These conversations will continue throughout the weekend to discuss sustainability and the BlueEconomy to the public. Additionally, as part of the conference, Yachting Ventures will be hosting a first ‘start-up hub’ held at Galaxia eShow 2023.
The event is free to attend, and all exhibitions will be open across the three days with specific themes on each day.
