Ultrafabrics, the world's top producer of high-end performance textiles for the marine industry, will showcase its luxurious and hard-wearing outdoor fabrics at three shows this autumn: The Genoa Boat Show, Metstrade in Europe and IBEX in North America.

Barry Silverman, Vice President of Marketing and Brand, says, "We are pleased to have strong connections with the global luxury marine industry and continue to use these events to strengthen our relationships, show our continued innovation and participate in the important conversations these events bring. There is an inspiring zeitgeist created when all of these industry voices come together, and we love being a part of it."

The company's exterior marine fabrics, Coast and Pumice, will both be on display, as well an exclusive preview of its custom grain option, Marina, which has a matt, timeless leather-like grain.

These three collections stand up to the demands of exterior marine upholstery. They are engineered to resist water, deflect against mildew and bacteria, and endure regular cleaning and disinfection. They feature enhanced UV resistance ensures colourfastness and Ultrafabrics' unique microfoam layer keeps surfaces cool to the touch.

Also on display will be the rest of Ultrafabrics' sustainable and animal-free portfolio of fabrics which is suitable for marine interior applications.

Ultrafabrics materials can be seen in interior and exterior seating for companies such as Princess Yachts, Viking, Formula, Premier, Tiara, Cruisers and Hatteras, to name a few.


In Europe, the first stop is the 63rd edition of the world-renowned Genoa Boat Show in Italy, where Ultrafabrics will be co-exhibiting with Socovena & Mapla, its Italian agent for the marine industry.

The second stop in Europe is the 35th edition of Metstrade in Amsterdam where over 1,300 exhibitors and thousands of visitors gather each year to do serious business.

Richard Field, European Sales Director of Ultrafabrics, says: "As Ultrafabrics continues to strengthen its marine business in Europe, we view the Genoa International Boat Show as a key exhibition for both the luxury yacht and leisure marine markets in Italy, the home of luxury yacht manufacturing, and METS Amsterdam as a must attend business to business exhibition attracting global visitors where we can network with our clients and showcase our innovative, luxury, interior and exterior fabrics."

Ultrafabrics will also be displaying its outdoor and marine textiles at IBEX in Tampa, Florida.

As an industry trade event for professionals working in the recreation marine industry, IBEX offers its attendees over 700+ exhibits in the exhibit halls, outdoor display space, and on the IBEX Docks. It also offers unparalleled training and education from industry experts and associations. It provides a targeted audience for marine industry OEM and suppliers, aftermarket manufacturers, and service providers.
