FLIBS adds restaurant

ADVERTISEMENT

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show continues to add new features and expand its offerings. Set for Oct. 30 to Nov. 3, the 55th installment of the annual show brings Pier 66 back into the fold (assuming construction there is far enough along), stretching the show to seven locations. The other locations include Bahia Mar Yachting Center, Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Municipal Marina, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Sails Marina and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.

 

One of the show’s top complaints has been about the number of dining options in and around the show, so this year, the show adds a full-service pop-up restaurant. Located at the Hall of Fame and previous site of the Yachts International magazine pavilion, the restaurant will be operated by Hugh’s Culinary. The restaurants at Pier 66 — Pelican Landing and Grille 66 — also will be included in the lineup.

 

The show also will create the IGFA Sportfishing Lounge. Located inside the convention center, the lounge will offer comfortable seating and drink service.

 

“Year after year our goal for the show is to enhance the overall experience for visitors and offer industry professionals the best platform to conduct business,” said Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, CEO of Show Management, the company that manages and produces the show. “This year we have more exhibit space than ever before, further-improved navigational aids and additional dining options all designed to ensure that FLIBS remains the center of the yachting world.”     

 

The show is open Thursday, Oct. 30, through Sunday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Monday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

Tickets are $24 of a one-day pass, $42 for two days Thursday admission is $40. Purchase online for a $2 discount at ShowManagement.com.

 

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is owned and sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida.
