NMMA sells out pavilion space at Rio show

Posted on

The USA Pavilion at the Rio de Janeiro Boat Show, part of the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s new export development program, is sold out.

This is the first time the United States will have a group presence at the show and the country pavilion is the only one of its size, with 16 American companies confirmed to exhibit. Brazil is currently the country’s fifth-largest export market. In spite of high import duties and challenging conditions, U.S. exports are on the rise.

Companies confirmed in the USA Pavilion at the Rio de Janeiro Boat Show include boat and yacht builders, marine equipment manufacturers, distributors of boating products and supplies, boat trailers and lifts, boat certification support and fishing equipment — all NMMA members.

The NMMA’s export development program, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, is targeting a number of international boat shows to expand international presence for its members.

Export development director Julie Balzano said there is still an opportunity to attend the USA Pavilion Cocktail Reception.

Upcoming opportunities to exhibit include:

• North America Pavilion at the Korea International Boat Show (May 30-June 2)

• North America Pavilion at the International Boat Show & Festival, Sanya, China (Oct. 17-20)

• USA Pavilion at METS in Amsterdam (Nov. 19-21)

    The fact that the space is sold out this early makes it a very promising boat show that is worthy of attending. I’m so excited to see new boat designs and cool boating equipments at the event.
