What boat show?

I need to finalise my decision on what cat to finally order this year after what seem an eternity reading up and investigating. I am looking for delivery late 2008 or early 2009 at the latest so time and being able to view nearly everything available on the market at one show is important.
After attending Southampton last year and London this year I was somewhat disappointed at the number of cats on show at both.
Can anyone advise what will be this years best show with the most number of cats?
Paris, Cannes, La Rochelle, Annapolis, Miami?
Many thanks

there was another thread on this, for the US, it would be Miami.

Thanks for that but having missed this years and the next one Feb 2008, I think I'm struggling.

I'm walking through the boat show in my head, since I'm a local I go every year when I'm in town with the boat.

Perennial showers in Annapolis are:

Fountain Pajot (2 models)
Moorings (3 models)
Gunboat
PDQ
Leapord/Moorings (2 models)
Lagoon (2 models)
sometimes Admiral
Gemini
sometimes nautitech
sometimes wildcat
sometimes catana
often privilege
broadblue
maine cat
manta
often voyage
sometimes admiral
st francis was here last year, but that was very unusual
never outremer

In conjunction with the boat show, catamaran company (annapolis of course) has 20 or so used cats that they allow people to board in their "open house". So it's not a "bad" boat show, but it's not the size of Miami.. In addition to that, we locally have many different types of cats owned by individual owners, and often a local company rep can hook up up with an owner to look at their boat as well. Finally after the show they have the "multihull demo days" in which all of the multihulls go out and go sailing with each other, at the boat show tell the broker your serious, tell them you've got the money and are looking at buying now, and they will put you on a boat.

If you want to come, grab lodging NOW at the annapolis econolodge. It's far enough away from the boat show you won't be gouged too much and has reasonable rates

econolodge
2451 Riva Road, Annapolis, MD 21401
(410) 841-2545

If money isn't too much of an object and you REALLY want to be where the action is, call now and book the Annapolis Marriot on the waterfront. It's literally part of the boat show. Annapolis Hotels & Maryland Accommodations - Marriott Annapolis Waterfront Hotel

If you've never been to this area, it can be fun to grab the Dillon Bus and go visit DC after things are done. All of the Smithsonian museums are free.
