Collins Stewart renews its sponsorship of the London Boat Show 2008 at Excel

05 July 2007

National Boat Shows can today confirm that Collins Stewart, sponsor of the 2007 London Boat Show at ExCeL, has renewed its sponsorship of the show for 2008. The announcement marks the continuation of an extremely successful partnership between the marine and financial communities.

Collins Stewart is the UK's leading independent stockbroking, corporate advisory and wealth management business and, in 2006, was the leading fundraiser on London’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and has one of the broadest financial services practices in the UK. The company's wealth management division offers the full range of stockbroking and portfolio management services tied to individually tailored portfolios, backed up by high grade research and innovative ideas. Differentiated from its competitors by its exceptional entrepreneurial can-do attitude, Collins Stewart is focused on delivering performance and service, coupled with transparent performance reporting and performance related fees.

The renewed sponsorship demonstrates Collins Stewart’s important attitude towards work and leisure and its support of leaders within industry. For National Boat Shows, the association with Collins Stewart increased attendance from the city and financial audiences and was instrumental in attracting a broader scope of visitors to the 2007 show.

Andrew Williams, Managing Director of National Boat Shows, stresses how important this city audience is to the show and its exhibitors. 'We are delighted to continue working with Collins Stewart in its sponsorship of the London Boat Show at ExCeL. The relationship has brought new and valued visitors to the show and we hope to build on this further in January 2008 at our 54th show.'

Joel Plasco, Chief Executive of Collins Stewart explains. 'After such a successful exhibition in 2007, Collins Stewart is proud to be title sponsor of the London Boat Show at ExCeL for a second year running. Collins Stewart’s association with wealth creation and wealth management goes from strength to strength and we look forward to working closely with the London Boat Show at ExCeL to ensure its ongoing success.'

Confirmed today as the Collins Stewart London Boat Show at ExCeL, this significant sponsorship is another example of the strength of support behind the show. With leading boat manufacturers pledging their attendance and stand sales ahead of this time last year, the show promises to be the best of its kind in London and a must for enthusiasts and day-trippers alike.
