The Marine Industries Association of South Florida is hosting a Jan. 14 luncheon for members to provide updates on Yachts Miami Beach and the Progressive Miami International Boat Show — two separately owned and operated events.

NMMA president Thom Dammrich will provide the latest news on the 2016 Miami International Boat Show, which will take place Feb. 11-15 at its new home at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.

Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, president and CEO of Show Management, will provide an update on Yachts Miami Beach, which takes place on the same dates.

Show Management and Soundings Trade Only are part of Active Interest Media.

“The MIASF has been tremendously supportive of our efforts to produce a successful Miami International Boat Show, and I am honored to be able to speak to their members and provide them with all the exciting updates on the show,” said Dammrich.

The luncheon will be held at the Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne at 11:30 a.m. The cost to attend is $20.

Members are required to RSVP by Friday because space is limited.
