Lumishore to Support 2016 Boat Builder Awards

Underwater lighting specialist onboard for second outing of prestigious awards

June 13th, 2016 — Swansea, UK - Marine underwater lighting specialist Lumishore has announced that they are once again to sponsor the Boat Builder International Distributor/Dealer Award category at this year’s Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement, set to take place on November 16.

One of eight awards to be presented at a gala dinner at the spectacular National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, nominees within this category will have shown significant expansion of their boatbuilding business through export success during 2015/16 and the expansion of their distributor or dealer networks resulting in increased export sales. Brunswick Marine in EMEA picked up the prize in 2015 for their Quicksilver dealer network expansion outside of Europe.

“Lumishore is proud to have been invited to sponsor the prestigious Boat Builder Awards again,” says Lumishore CEO Eifrion Evans. “It is important for the industry that we recognise our colleagues’ innovation and achievements at METSTRADE, the world’s premier marine trade show with these awards. The organisers are to be applauded for their initiative and organisation in giving us all the chance to honour our industry’s successes.”

The prestigious Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement, in association with Raymarine, is organised jointly by IBI and METSTRADE to recognise and reward the outstanding business achievements of individuals and teams within a number of key areas in the global leisure boatbuilding industry.

Last year’s inaugural event welcomed more than 200 guests who arrived via canal boat direct from the RAI exhibition centre to enjoy a dinner themed around Dutch exploration accompanied by live music, all capped off by the awards ceremony itself.
