A signature event in a historic port

Poole Maritime Festival is an annual programme of events created in May 2017 to go alongside the prestigious "European Maritime Day" Conference awarded to Poole. Now in it's third year, this month-long suite of events was organised by BCP Council (Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole) in partnership with a number of organisations, attracting thousands of people over the different events.

The theme of this year’s Business Programme was Looking to the Future of the Marine and Maritime sector and how innovation in smart systems, technology and ways of working is driving the future of the sector. This five day programme brought compelling content with a series of workshops, conferences and networking planned across the week to celebrate our Marine excellence in Dorset and along the South Coast.

The Public Festival includes the award-winning Poole Harbour Boat Show organised by Poole Harbour Commissioners, and many other exciting events for the whole family.
