  • Over 1,400 exhibitors will assemble with their showcase events and displays, with the convention center being transformed into a marine paradise.
  • The International Boat Show will be held over four venues: 1) Bahia Mar Yachting Center, 2) Hall of Fame Marina, 3) Greater Ft Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, 4) Hilton Ft Lauderdale Grande Hotel. Fear not though, riverboats, water taxis and shuttle buses will make it easy for you to navigate all show sites.

Sailboats: (3%), Powerboats (60%), Other boats (5%), Accessories and equipment (25%), Engines (3%), Services (3%), Other (1%) is a general make-up of the Boat Show.
  • Last year, VIP Boat Show Experiences showcased its inaugural VIP Experience. This year, it’s back! From Hollywood A-listers to sports’ shining stars, The Yachting Capital of the World is the place to be for the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show from November 3!
