Miami boat shows team up on promotions

Jan 6, 2019 by Triton Staff

The National Marine Manufacturers Association, owners of the Miami International Boat Show (MIBS), and Informa, co-owners of the Miami Yacht Show (MYS) with the International Yacht Brokers Association, have announced a joint venture to showcase both events, which take place Feb. 14-18.

The partnership includes a joint advertising campaign, a combination ticket for people looking to attend both events, and free shuttle bus transportation between both shows. MIBS also will offer free water taxi service from Bayfront Park and American Airlines Arena; and MYS will run VIP tenders between its main site and its Super Yacht Miami site.

Prompting the partnership is the 2019 move of the Miami Yacht Show to downtown Miami at One Herald Plaza, across Biscayne Bay from the Miami International Boat Show at Miami Marine Stadium, which is also closer to Miami Yacht Show’s Super Yacht Miami exhibit at Island Gardens on Watson Island.

Combined, the shows will bring nearly 2,000 boats, yachts and superyachts to Miami over President’s Day weekend. The Miami International Boat Show will feature more than 1,400 new boats ranging from 10 feet to 100 feet, and the Miami Yacht Show and Super Yacht Miami will feature more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and superyachts ranging from 40 feet to over 320 feet, according to a press release.
