BRITISH MARINE INDUSTRIES FEDERATION
The British Marine Industries Federation is an organisation which exists to promote and speak for the marine industry.
National Boats Shows very kindly arranged for the first Solar Navigator (swath design) to be included in their Concept 2000 stand at the London Boat Show at Earls Court. A number of contacts were made at the show and the public got their first viewing of the prototype vessel in 1/10th scale. Comments made by the public were recorded in a book over a weekend - demonstrating significant interest in solar power for propulsion. Very many thanks to Joe Laredo and the BMF for their generous hospitality on this occasion.
British Marine Federation, or BMF, is the trade association for the leisure, superyacht and small commercial marine industry, currently representing 12 regional associations, 16 Group Associations and 1400+ members across the UK marine supply chain. These include the Superyacht sector, chandlers, boatbuilders, brokers, suppliers of equipment for yachts and motorboats, to flag makers, Sailing Training and operators of marinas both coastal and inland. The BMF also promotes career opportunities in the marine industry and advice and assistance through their Environment and Boating Facilities, and Training and Technical teams.
The London Boat Show is held each January at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London, just opposite the O2 and the centre of London's business and entertainment centre. It is a large event, now in its 58th year, which uses one of ExCeL's 32,500 square metre halls. It is organised by National Boat Shows, which is a subsidiary of the British Marine Federation, the trade association for the UK boating industry.
