More than 60 business exhibited at the afternoon event on June 18 which included live music, food trucks and water taxi tours. Children explored boat and propeller building, experimented with buoyancy, touched live sea creatures and met professionals in the industry.

Marine Industry Day is produced by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, with support from the U.S. Superyacht Association, Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and Young Professionals in Yachting.
