Palma Boat Show organisers  have decided to dredge the port in order to accommodate more boats in next year’s edition of the event.

Palma.—The committee intends to discuss further details with the government and the Port Authorities when the entities meet next July. Other measures to improve the 32nd edition of the fair in 2015 will also be discussed but for now a team of workers has already been put together to see how the dredging plan can go forward.
All the ideas and suggestions left by visitors from this year’s event  will also be taken on board and discussed at the July meeting.
The new plan comes after results showed the financial impact of the event on the local economy surpassed 2013’s results and customer satisfaction reached new heights.
Those who were present this year rated the fair with a 2.95 percent out of 4 in terms of general organisation and satisfaction, with 80 percent of the visitors, in their majority British, German and Spanish assuring they would be returning next year.
