    Default Southampton Boat Show best day.

    Is the first Friday any different to the rest of the days?

    I understand that weekends are probably busiest, but not necessarily as there are a lot of retired/self employed people who can go mid-week.

    I want to discuss new electronics for a yacht we intend to buy in the UK but went to a show once where on the first day there was constant interruption from employees on the stand “learning the ropes”

    Odd on an electronics stand

    I went last year on the first Saturday and it was far from busy. Going again this Saturday (14th) and am expecting it to be as quiet as last year.

    I had long discussions with all the suppliers I want to. Excellent service from everybody there, food was seriously overpriced I stayed well clear of the bar.

    Quietest days, and therefore best to actually speak to stand staff, is probably Monday- Thursday
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    If possible pick a day when it is raining! but I would expect week days to be the quietest.
