Guests can request golf cart service at any of the show's Guest Services booths, located along Collins Avenue. Tenders will be available to brokers working at the show to transport clients to four predetermined stops along the Indian Creek waterway. The public may access tender service through a broker.

The show, which is free and open to the public, will feature more than 500 new and used vessels valued at more than $1 billion dollars and covering more than 1.2 million square feet of space along a mile-long strip of the Indian Creek Waterway.
