MYS18: Miami show adds VIP floating lounge

ADVERTISEMENT

Miami Yacht Show organizers have announced new amenities in the VIP Experience for this year’s event. Celebrating its 30th year, the show will take place Feb. 15-19 along Collins Avenue, across from the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels in Miami Beach. Planners expect more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and an array of marine technology and accessories.

According to a statement from Informa, the show’s producer and co-owner, a new floating waterfront lounge will be located this year at the center of the show, nestled among some of the largest yachts on display, and will offer pass holders open bar and refreshments, special showcases and concierge services, all within a climate-controlled setting. Concierge service for arranging private yacht tours and other requests will be provided by Delmay & Partners. VIP Experience tickets, at $150 per day per person, include admission to the show. For more information, visit MiamiYachtShow.com.

Two different boat shows will take place in Miami Beach during Presidents’ Day weekend in February. Informa manages and produces the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue, which it co-owns with the International Yacht Brokers Association. The event runs concurrently with the Miami International Boat Show, which is owned and operated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
