Show Management, the world's leading boat show company, today announced the addition of several signature attractions for the inaugural Panama International Boat Show, which will take place June 20-22 at Flamenco Marina on Flamenco Island in Panama.

• In addition to the display of boats in the water and on land, marine accessories and services, attendees will enjoy an impressive car display with a large selection of the latest models from Mercedes-Benz, Dodge and Jeep.

• On June 21 and 22, at 4 p.m., Show Management and designer Marcel Kaminstein will present the IfULoveMe Fashion Show, featuring the latest yachting jewelry and swimwear fashion trends.
