The tents were going up, and other site work was in progress in mid-January at the Virginia Key site of the Miami International Boat Show.

A logistical challenge

The ink was barely dry on the last permit needed for the Miami International Boat Show to move to Virginia Key when NMMA president Thom Dammrich made it official at a packed Jan. 14 meeting of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida: “The show is happening,” his slide show said in big, bold letters.
