Informa Exhibitions, producers of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, has opened a 7,700-square-foot Southeast U.S. base on Southeast 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale.

The new office is one of more than 20 international offices that house Informa Exhibitions’ more than 1,400 employees, about half of which are based in the U.S.

Informa acquired Yachting Promotions Inc. last year, adding three of the world’s largest in-water boat shows to its portfolio: FLIBS, Miami Yacht Show and the Palm Beach International Boat Show.  Informa Exhibitions also owns and produces the Monaco Yacht Show. It produces more than 200 trade and consumer exhibitions annually.

Its parent company, Informa PLC, trades on the London Stock Exchange and is a member of the FTSE 100.
