RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show

Organised by the Royal Yachting Association, the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show is a two-day exhibition aimed at encouraging members of the public to participate in dinghy sailing, windsurfing and complimentary watersports through an engaging programme of talks, exhibitors, show features and coaching sessions.

To provide a first-class experience for visitors, exhibitors and partners for the 2022 instalment, following its stint at Alexandra Palace, RYA needed a venue that provided value, ample space, accessibility via car and transport links, state-of-the-art technology and provided a quality customer service and experience. Ticking all of the boxes, Farnborough International became the new home for the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show.

The main exhibition took place in our 12,332sqm Hall 1, enabling more than 150 exhibitors to showcase their services and products, including 100+ boats, over 25 talks and coaching sessions across 3 stages and more than 10 interactive features.

Celia Edgington, Shows and Promotions Manager at RYA, said: “The RYA’s Dinghy & Watersports Show required a space with enough height to accommodate sailing dinghies and we were delighted with how the hall looked with all of the exhibitors and boats in one place. The atmosphere and general buzz around the show was fantastic and was a testament to the amazing venue and highly professional event team. The event was a great success.

“The events team were amazing. Ollie and Rebecca were always quick to return calls and answer emails and came up with answers and solutions for every request or query we had. The whole team were a delight to work with and we’re looking forward to the 2023 event.”
