Dates set for Southern boat shows

Show producer JBM & Associates set the dates for the 2015 Charleston (S.C.) Boat Show, the Charleston In-Water Boat Show and the Savannah (Ga.) Boat Show.

The 35th annual Charleston Boat Show is set for Jan. 23-25. The show, which opens the 2015 Lowcountry boating season, will return to the Charleston Area Convention Center with hundreds of boats from the area’s top retailers on display.

The Savannah Boat Show, entering its 13th year, will be held from Feb. 27 to March 1 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. The show attracts thousands of current and prospective boat owners with extensive displays of the latest in watercraft lines, marine equipment, accessories and services.

Bristol Marina and Brittlebank Park will be the venue for the April 17-19 Charleston In-Water Boat Show. The marina will host boats in the water from 17 to 70 feet and Brittlebank Park will feature additional boat displays, as well as vendors selling marine-related accessories and services.

“2015 will be a great year for boat shows. It’s our goal and passion to provide our attendees with high-quality experiences that keep them coming back year after year,” JBM & Associates president Jacqui Bomar said in a statement. “We seek out exhibitors with new products and services and do our best to provide something unique for our visitors every year.”
