In-person Stuart Show Runs This Weekend


The Stuart Boat Show, as an in-person event, runs Jan. 15-17, and will include hundreds of boats and products on display, as well as seminars.

Show organizer AllSports Productions, said in a statement that it worked with local, state and Centers for Disease Control officials to follow respective Covid-19 guidelines. The company said it will continually monitor and evaluate the show and adjust safety protocols as needed.

“We are expecting a robust turnout from both exhibitors and attendees this year due to the eagerness to get back to normal since the Covid-19 pandemic, so we need to be razor-sharp in our planning and safety procedures,” AllSports president Skip Allen said.

Another AllSports show, the Florida Outdoor Expo in West Palm Beach, is scheduled for April 23-25, also as an in-person event.
