The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced dates for its Chicago and Miami boat shows.
The Chicago Boat, RV and Outdoors Show will be held Jan. 13-17 at McCormick Place.
In its 80th year, the largest show in the Midwest will feature hundreds of boats, RVs and specialty booths displaying marine accessories and travel destinations. It will also include an Affordability Pavilion, Green Boating Zone and a Huck Finn Trout Pond.
The 69th annual Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail Miami runs Feb. 11-15 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The show will feature more than 2,500 exhibitors displaying powerboats, sailboats, engines, electronics and marine accessories.
"And, for the first time ever, visitors will have the chance to preshop the show, browsing exhibitor inventory and scheduling dealer appointments on our Web site [MiamiBoatShow.com or StrictlySailMiami.com] to make navigating the event even easier," said Cathy Rick-Joule, NMMA vice president of southern shows, in a statement.
