RIVA was represented by AdBrands Marine (PTY)LTD - exclusive Riva agent for Southern Africa, Mauritius and Seychelles - at the CAPE TOWN BOAT SHOW held in October, from 12th to 14th, in the CTICC (Cape Town International Convention Centre). This new mega conferencing and exhibition facility, built with Table Mountain as backdrop at the entrance of the world famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, was packed with boating and marine related exhibitors representing the world’s top nautical brands. Like last year, RIVA stole the show in 2012 as well with a magnificent “new RIVA lifestyle” exhibition standat the entrance to the show, serving complimentary Champagne and canapés to all visitors to the RIVA stand. A brand new Lamborghini Gallardo in metallic white, branded “RIVA” was parked immediately outside the entrance to the show, further attracting attention to “The Good Life”, everything Italian and the RIVA brand. Attended by 17,000 people over a three day period, the show was a resounding success. AdBrands Marine has received interest in a new 92’ Duchessa, the SportRiva 56’ and an order of hull no. 83 of the Rivale 52’, which has just come off the production line. “It is a privilege to work with the Riva brand and awareness of the brand is growing in Southern Africa, Mauritius and the Seychelles. We hope to start achieving breakthroughs to make this region a powerful boating hub for RIVA and the Ferretti group”, stated the AdBrands Marina staff.
