In-Person Charleston Show Opens Friday

Publish date:

Charleston Boat Show organizers said they’ve made modifications in observance of Covid-19 guidelines to allow in-person attendance. This year’s show runs Jan. 29-31 at the Charleston Area Convention Center.


The show is for retail sales only, with no special events, such as fishing seminars. Outdoor exhibition space will be expanded, and indoor attendance is limited to 50 percent of capacity. Attendees must prepurchase tickets online.

“We are not only adhering to all city and state guidelines, but taking additional measures to keep the public safe,” Jacqui McGuinness, president of JBM & Associates, which produces the show on behalf of the Tri-County Marine Trade Association, said in a statement. “We successfully produced the Wilmington, N.C., Boat Show in October under strict Covid-19 guidelines and plan to do the same with the Charleston Boat Show.”
