We are moving the show to improve the attendee experience. This new location will offer 3,500 parking spaces and is minutes from major highways, steps from Miami’s new Brightline station, and a short shuttle or water taxi ride away from Superyacht Miami on Island Gardens and the Miami International Boat Show on Virginia Key. Customers again will be able to see both shows in one day. 

We also will have more land space to add enhancements to our VIP lounges, boost concession options, and better align with other luxury brands that complement the boating lifestyle such as exotic cars, private aviation and fine art.

In addition, we anticipate exhibitor expenses, such as hotel costs, meals and entertainment, will be lower. We are also certain that we will be able to move in boats more rapidly.

We are working diligently with local, city and state organizations to obtain the appropriate permits and plan to announce when details are finalized.

We have enjoyed a great relationship with the NMMA and have every expectation that we will continue to work together to benefit our shared
attendees and the marine industry as a whole. At a minimum, we expect to continue existing initiatives, including transportation between the two shows, a joint attendee ticket option, accepting one another’s exhibitor credentials, and referrals on each other’s websites.

With the ease of access to the show, expanded parking and planned luxury enhancements, we expect to increase attendance dramatically. In addition we know that lower hotel rates and an expedited move-in process will help exhibitors lower their costs for participating in the show. Exhibitors also will realize cost savings with onsite parking and easy access to public transportation.
