Show Management’s new owner will share its vision for growing the international boating and yachting sector during a media event March 24 at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

London-based Informa PLC recently purchased Show Management, the producer of five of Florida’s largest boat shows.

Informa CEO Stephen Carter will be the featured speaker at a media briefing held by Show Management and The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County.

Informa’s global exhibitions division delivers 200 industry events annually, including the Monaco Yacht Show. Carter will share Informa’s vision for deepening its leadership in the growing international yachting and boating sector, organizers said.

Other speakers will discuss what’s new at the 32nd annual Palm Beach show. Among them will be Active Interest Media chairman Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III; Michael Kennedy, chairman of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County; and Chuck Collins, the association’s executive director.
