Last year, VIP Boat Show Experiences launched its inaugural VIP experience at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The exclusive program brings together boating enthusiasts, technology advancements and many new product debuts for three spectacular days of events, seminars, all-inclusive parties, networking and more throughout the boat show weekend.
Attendees raved about how much fun they had so we decided to bring it back this year, bigger and better! Over 3 million square feet of prime real estate on the Florida Coast will be home to dazzling yachts and sea vessels, from runabouts and sport-fishers to extraordinary super-yachts. Over 1,400 exhibitors will converge with their showcase events and displays and the convention center will be transformed into a marine playground.
The international event beckons foreign dignitaries, presidents, Hollywood stars and sports’ greatest celebrities. Join us in the “Yachting Capital of the World” this November for a ride into the future. Here’s how you can experience the Ft. Lauderdale Intl. Boat Show like never before!
