Construction of Miami show facilities underway

Publish date:

Construction at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin is underway for the 2018 Progressive Miami International Boat Show, which will be held from Feb. 15-19 on Virginia Key.

Staff are continuing their preparations for what is shaping up to be a sold-out show, where more than 1,400 boats representing more than 175 brands are expected on land and in the water, said the National Marine Manufacturers Association, which owns and runs the event.

Tents F and D and center court rotunda tents are up, and tents E, A, B and C will be constructed next, the NMMA said in its Currents newsletter.

Installation of the show’s marina begins today. It will host Strictly Sail Miami for the first time.

Exhibitors are encouraged to make their hotel and parking bookings as soon as possible.
