The Palm Beach International Boat Show opens today as an in-person event and runs through the weekend, with more than $1.2 billion worth of yachts on display, including several U.S. and world debuts.
Show organizer Informa Markets said it will implement the same safety protocols as its previous in-person events. All participants must wear masks, and temperatures will be taken at the entrance to the show. Deep cleaning will take place before, during and after each day of the show. There also are more entrances and exits to ease pedestrian traffic, and the show has an open-air layout to help facilitate social distancing.
Informa said the Palm Beach show has an economic impact of $682.7 million and supports 4,394 full-time jobs in Florida, with a $228 million labor impact.
