Auckland OWBS- Sail-World at the Boat Show - Get your Show Plan here

The Auckland On Water Boat Show gets underway Thursday at the Viaduct Events Centre, featuring a mix of undercover exhibits and plenty of floating dreams for you to check out at your leisure.

On Wednesday evening, the finishing touches were being put on the various exhibits and stands. You could feel the atmosphere, and this year's event, now out from the shadow of the Rugby World Cup, looks set to be a great show.

There are around 350 stand locations and over 40 floating exhibits, getting around that lot, and spending an average of 5 minutes per boat/exhibit will take you the total duration of the show - so it is essential to plan your visit a little without being too tedious.

Take a pen, pick up a program and plan what you want to see, and where it is located.

We've made it easy for you just http://www.sail-world.com/NZ/register_File_n.cfm?flid=65!click_here to download the Auckland on Water Boat Show map.

On the right of the map is the list of exhibitors and you can check their locations on the floor plan on the left.

Sail-World's Lounge is on the first level - go in the main revolving door, look up to your right and you will see the Sail-World sign. Or go up the escalators to the first level, keep turning right, and there we are!

We've done something different this year creating a Sail-World Lounge with plenty of comfy furniture, and two giant 52' video screens. We'll be running the best video we have found over the past year - America's Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Olympics and more.

So even if you just want a half-time break, feel free to chill out in the Sail-World Lounge and have a chat, and take in some great sailing video.

There's also some great posters available from these events. Come along to the show, leave your email address, and we'll send you jpg files of the three great shots below - Emirates Team NZ's AC72 foiling past North Head, Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie crossing the finish line to win the Gold Medal at Weymouth, and Camper entering the Waitemata Harbour at the finish of Leg 4 of the Volvo Ocean Race.

These will make great gift posters, or screensavers for non-commercial use. We've had several printed at a cost of $50 each at a standard A0 size, which is very reasonable.

Another special on the Sail-World stand will be a sequence of 320 images that have been run together to form a short video of Emirates Team NZ's AC72 foiling on the Waitemata. This shows a run past Rangitoto, a gybe, climb up onto the foils and then a flypast North Head.

Instead of having to fiddle your way through Sail-World with a mouse, come and try our giant touch-screen. We'll be able to show you all the functionality in Sail-World, so you can enjoy your sailing and boating news even more after the show.

If you are interested in advertising on Sail-World, we can explain the benefits using the giant touch screen, and out together a package that will get to your target markets.

But that's enough about us, we look forward to meeting you at the Auckland On Water Boat Show. We'll be filing stories from the Viaduct Events Centre for the next four days, and covering as much of the Show as we can.
