FLIBS to get larger ‘plaza-style’ entrance at new location

FLIBS

Organizers of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show said they have made a “variety of enhancements” to the “form and function” of the world’s largest in-water boat show. The changes will include a new entrance and food concessions.

A company statement said the main entrance will be repositioned several hundred yards north of the Bahia Mar Hotel and Marina. The new entrance will have a plaza-like configuration, improved security, and a VIP and exhibitor gate. The previous main entrance will be used for exhibitor move-in, move-out and other logistics, improving access for attendees and exhibitors.

"Informa is focused on evaluating the overall show experience and how FLIBS is perceived by people who arrive from many different places and spend time at the show each day," said Andrew Doole, general manager of Informa U.S. Boat Shows in the statement. "First impressions are crucial, which is why we are creating a professionally designed, dedicated show entrance with a thoughtful layout and other elements of convenience for guests and exhibitors."

Doole said a new culinary provider will offer farm-to-plate fruits and vegetables, sustainable seafood and organic meats through partnerships with companies that source organic and sustainable products.
