    • Hi Robyn,

      Tickets for the 2016 Melbourne Boat Show can be purchased in advance online or at the door at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

      Enjoy your trip to Melbourne!


  • If I buy tickets online, can I show the ticket on my phone to get into the event as I don’t have a printer.

    • Hi Corinna, thanks for contacting us.

      I’m not sure if admission can be granted by showing your phone as tickets may need to be scanned upon entry. I suggest contacting the event organisers on (03) 8696 5600 who will be able to assist you.

      If you do need to print your tickets, you could use the services of the State Library, Officeworks on Elizabeth Street or any internet cafe in Melbourne for a small fee (20-30cents per page).

      Enjoy your day at the Melbourne Boat Show!
