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.

• Panama Fishing Magazine will host a virtual fishing tournament on all show days; show visitors will be able to virtually "fish" for a chance to win daily prizes. There also will be fishing seminars by the Navegante TV fishing team.

"We like to make each show we produce a place where everyone can have a great time and enjoy the boating lifestyle," Show Management CEO Efrem "Skip" Zimbalist III said in a statement. "All these different attractions are designed to encourage participation in boating and fishing."

Show Management also produces the world-famous Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, the Palm Beach International Boat Show, the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show and the Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota.

Show Management and Soundings Trade Only are owned by Active Interest Media.
