Welcome to the Watersports Forum!
The Watersport and Boat Tour Operators Forum is a special event that brings together the brightest minds and experienced operators in the watersport and boating industry. Each participant will have the opportunity to sign up for various roundtable discussions led by industry experts, connect with other operators, and hear from various presenters on industry trends and best practice. Some of the topics include pricing, regulations, economics, and marketing. After the conference, join your fellow colleagues at nightly events for drinks and small plates.
