Official Statement

“As previously communicated, we have continuously reviewed the situation with regards to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Following the latest restrictions and with considerable communication with our local and state officials it has been determined that we cannot proceed with the Live event. Therefore, we are pleased to announce our Virtual Boat Show launching on the show’s currently scheduled day of May 14th.

These have been unprecedented days and we want to assure you that not only is the health and safety of each one of you at the forefront of our thoughts, but so is your business.

The Virtual Palm Beach International Boat Show will continue to be dedicated to connecting our community of passionate yachting and marine enthusiasts with our nearly 500 premier exhibitors. As a trusted partner, we appreciate your partnership with us as we power through these uncharted waters together. In the show’s 35-year history, we have never dealt with a situation such as this.

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 state-wide economic impact of over $682.7 million. While the show will no longer take place in its original form, we are looking forward to engaging with our exhibitors and attendees via our virtual show.

As always, we want to thank our City of West Palm Beach officials, our Exhibitors and the boating community for their ongoing support.”

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