Detroit Boat Show sells out exhibitor space

In a sign of a rebounding economy, the Detroit Boat Show has doubled in size in just two years. In 2014, the show has two larger halls and, at 300,000 square feet of exhibition space, is again officially sold out.
The show will be held Feb. 15-23 at the Cobo Center.

“It is great to be in this position, as we know we will be offering a great display of boats, motors and accessories to those who attend the Detroit Boat Show,” show manager Nicki Polan said in a statement. “Space sales are up more than 15 percent and the number of boats on the floor will also be up from last year.”

To accommodate last-minute requests, the show is taking space from promotion areas and food service areas.
