Worldwide logistics firm, PSP, announced it is to join the sponsor roster for the Poole Harbour Boat Show 2016, in association with Sunseeker, today.                     

The sponsorship marks just over a successful year for the firm at its new offices in Poole, a borough renowned as an epicentre for business and manufacturing. PSP has been working closely with Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC) to bring more business to the port as the only freight-forwarder in Poole Harbour.


The award-winning event, which is in its second year, will take place 20 – 22 May. On Friday 20, sponsors including PSP Logistics, Sunseeker, Bates Wharf Marine Sales, Coleman Insurance, Humphries Kirk, Sibbett Gregory, the Westover Group and Elite Signs will come together for a networking lunch, joined by key customers and media to celebrate the opening of the show. This will be followed by a drinks reception.


Frank Dixie, managing director of PSP, said: “We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Poole Harbour Boat Show – it is a great way to mark our recent work with PHC and our new offices on New Harbour Road.


“The Poole Harbour Boat Show offers people from all walks of life the opportunity to sample the luxury and passion of boating free-of-charge. It is smaller and more intimate than many other boat shows, with a friendly, welcoming ambience.


“Last year the event was two days long and, due to its great success, it has been extended to include Friday. This business-focused day is a valuable opportunity to bring sponsors, businesses and customers together before the show opens to the public.”


In addition to everything nautical, the show will also feature a music stage where the PSP 11-piece band, Harry Hammersmith and the Flyovers, will perform two sets to the hundreds, on Saturday 21 May.


Frank added: “The PSP band cannot wait to take to the stage and entertain the crowd. It’s an hour to be able to do something so fun for our customers and fellow exhibitors.” 


Jim Stewart, Poole Harbour Commissioners’ chief executive, added: “We’re delighted to welcome PSP as a sponsor of our 2016 show and thank them for their support.  Poole is renowned for its superb harbour, excellent watersports and internationally and nationally successful marine industries, and the Poole Harbour Boat Show, in association with Sunseeker, provides a first-class platform to showcase the area’s excellence.”
