The Palm Beach International Boat Show is scheduled for March 25-28, but show organizer Informa Markets is awaiting approval from the city of West Palm Beach for in-person attendance, according to a report in the Palm Beach Daily News.

The city will review Informa’s Covid-19 plans next week.

The scaled-down show will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standards, as well as government and local guidance and regulations, the report states. Safety efforts include requiring attendees to wear masks, making the entire event open-air, and arranging multiple entrances and exits to ease the flow of pedestrian traffic and promote social distancing.

The Informa-produced Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last fall and St. Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show in January were in-person events with no reported cases of Covid-19 spread.
