CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) TRAVEL & HEALTH UPDATES



Update 4/6

The Palm Beach International Boat Show has been postponed until further notice.  


Official Statement

“Following Governor Ron DeSantis’ executive order issuing a Stay-At-Home directive through April 30, the Palm Beach International Boat Show has been postponed until further notice. Our primary concern continues to be the safety and well-being of our staff, exhibitors, partners, and attendees. We are closely monitoring the latest developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it might further impact our show. As a trusted partner, we appreciate your investment with us and need to plan ahead.

In the show’s 35-year history we have never dealt with a situation such as this. The show date and status - as a result, unfortunately remain fluid under the circumstances. We continue to assess the situation and will provide a detailed update on the show’s status by April 17. We thank you for your support and patience as we continue to power through these uncharted waters.

With that said, it's everyone's business to have a healthy economy. The marine industry is an important staple of the Florida economy, accountable for over $23.3 billion. The Palm Beach International Boat Show has a total statewide economic impact of $682.7 million and supports 4,394 full-time Florida jobs. We are all eager to get back on board and help to continue contributing as a major statewide economic driver.

From all of us at Informa’s U.S. Boat Shows and the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, Inc. we look forward to continuing to work with you as our partners, customers and industry colleagues.”

- Andrew Doole, President, Informa Markets U.S. Boat Shows and George Gentile, President of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County
