WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The 33rd annual Palm Beach International Boat Show takes place from Thursday, March 22, through Sunday, March 25, along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Palm Beach Island.
An annual mainstay of the global yachting community, held during an ideal time of year weather-wise and adjacent to one of the most affluent zip codes in the world, the Palm Beach International Boat Show is known to attract high-level boat buyers and charter clients. Many of the world’s most renowned shipyards prize the show as a platform for conducting business with the global elite.
The show features everything from 15-foot boats to super yachts more than 200 feet in length.
“The Palm Beach International Boat Show holds a special place on many boating and yachting enthusiasts’ calendars,” said Mary Bender, vice president of marketing for Informa, the show’s producer. “It’s the last major international yacht show of the yearly boat show season and therefore is well attended by serious shoppers as well as many key industry executives. It’s a great show to do business and make a deal.”
New this year is the VIP Experience where, like a private club, guests enjoy fine food in an air-conditioned space with comfortable seating and have a concierge team to arrange yacht tours, local dining reservations, private transportation and other personalized services.
In addition to the large selection of boats and exhibits, the show offers free youth fishing clinics by non-profit Hook the Future and IGFA School of Sportfishing seminars. Attendees also can enjoy live music and refreshments at the show's famous floating cocktail lounges.
The 2018 Palm Beach International Boat Show is owned and presented by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, Inc. (MIAPBC) and managed and produced by Informa. For more information, visit PBBoatShow.com.
