The eighth annual San Diego Yacht & Boat Show wrapped up during the weekend, with organizers calling the event a success.

The four-day show, which closed Sunday, saw a 17 percent increase in attendance from 2010, organizers said. Figures were not immediately available.

According to reports, many boats were sold and quality leads were gathered at the show, which is produced by the Southern California Marine Trades Association and presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California.

The 54th International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST, saw large and active crowds, according to organizers.

The show, which was held last week in Las Vegas, attracted 7,000 representatives from the sportfishing community, including 2,100 buyers and 530 media representatives, according to the American Sportfishing Association, which produces the show.

“There is nowhere like ICAST where the global sportfishing industry comes together to see the very latest in gear and accessories and network with colleagues and friends,” ASA president and CEO Mike Nussman said in a statement. “In this economy, people know they need to be smart about where and how they do business. I'm gratified that attending ICAST was high on everyone's list.”

ICAST 2011 featured 427 exhibitors filling 1,270 booths. ICAST attendance continued to increase; 822 people from 53 countries were represented.

Next year’s event is scheduled for July 11-13 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
