Organizers of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show announced several transportation and parking arrangements to make attending this year’s show more convenient.

In addition to transportation and parking enhancements, Las Olas Bridge construction will be halted from Oct. 28 through Nov. 6, with all four traffic lanes open during the Oct. 31-Nov. 4 show.

Newly designed entrances will greet attendees this year, in addition to enhanced color-coded directional signage throughout the show, new on-site map stands and a roaming guest services staff.

The MyBoatShow app, available on the iOS and Android platforms, provides maps; the locations of exhibitors, manufacturers, boats and more; seminar information; transportation schedules and maps; food and drink locations; restroom locations; and emergency services.
