The second annual Rhode Island Boat Show is set for April 28-29 at three locations: Bristol Marine in Bristol; Conanicut Marina in Jamestown; and Bassett Marine in Warwick.

Attendees are invited to the three locations to see sailboats and powerboats for sale, ranging in size from 15 to 49 feet, in the water and on land. Vendors will display everything from electronics to marine photography.

“This event is an exciting partnership of local marine businesses looking to bring their clients what our area was lacking — a great spring boat show. We offer one-on-one time with our customers, minus the crowds and expense of admission and parking that is common at standard boat shows,” Latitude Yacht Brokerage’s Ryan Miller said in a statement.

Admission is free at all locations.

New dates and a new location at the Cabo San Lucas marina are set for the returning Cabo (Mexico) Marine Show.

The July 5-7 event will host more than 50 local and foreign vendors.

“We are very proud to be partnering once again with IGY Marina Cabo San Lucas in our long-term vision to establish an international boat show here in Los Cabos, Mexico,” organizer Sergio Igartua said in a statement. “Their participation and the support of all our sponsors are what makes this type of event possible.”

MAA+Eventos, a Mexico City-based events management company, was contracted to handle all sales and logistics for the third annual Cabo Marine Show, including booth sales, registration and hotel accommodations.
