Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show offers more parking, shuttles


The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach is offering expanded parking and enhanced bus service to improve traffic flow to and from the Feb. 14-18 show.

Attendees will have several parking choices, all connected by a convenient motor coach system. The free transportation service will run all day, beginning at 8 a.m., two hours prior to the start the show, and run until 9 p.m., two hours after show closing.

The motor coach will transport attendees from all designated show parking locations to the center of the show or to drop-off/pickup locations at the north and south ends of the show along Collins Avenue.

Signage will direct show attendees to parking and free shuttle buses. The Yacht & Brokerage Show also offers free shuttle service to and from the Miami International Boat Show sites at the Miami Beach Convention Center and the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center. This shuttle service to both locations also begins two hours before the show opens and runs continuously until two hours after the show closes on all show days.

Also available at this year's Yacht & Brokerage Show are upgraded hospitality golf cart and water tender services. 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.
