Informa Exhibitions has signed a 10-year agreement with the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and the city of West Palm Beach to continue producing the annual Palm Beach International Boat Show.  

Now in its 33rd edition, the show ranks among the top yachting events in the world and features hundreds of boats ranging from small inflatables and tenders to sportfishers and superyachts, as well as the latest marine accessories.

“The show’s annual growth speaks, in part, to the unique, global appeal of Palm Beach, which makes it the show of choice for many boat and yacht owners,” Charlie McCurdy, CEO of Informa Exhibitions, said in a statement.  

Earlier this year, London-based Informa PLC purchased Yachting Promotions Inc., parent company of Show Management, which has managed and produced the Palm Beach show since 1995. In addition to the Palm Beach show, Informa Exhibitions produces the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Yachts Miami Beach, the Suncoast Boat Show, St. Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show, and the Monaco Yacht Show.

“The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County is very pleased to continue its longstanding relationships with the city of West Palm Beach and Yachting Promotions Inc., now part of Informa Exhibitions, extending its lease and agreement for the Palm Beach International Boat Show,” stated Michael Kennedy, president of the board of directors of the marine association, which owns the show. “The show allows the MIAPBC to advance the industry’s interests and support over 50 local events and charities.”

The 33rd Palm Beach International Boat Show will take place March 22-25, 2018, along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach Island.
