The National Marine Manufacturers Association said it has canceled the Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat Show for next weekend and rescheduled it for October 25-27. The trade association cited Hurricane Dorian as the reason for postponing the event.

“While we are disappointed to postpone the event, our main concern is the safety of the boaters, manufacturers and dealers that attend our show,” said Kevin Murphy, show manager in today’s Currents e-newsletter. “This decision was made to ensure attendees and exhibitors have time to adequately prepare for Hurricane Dorian. We look forward to seeing everyone October 25-27 for what will be our largest Tampa Boat Show yet.”

The show will remain at the Tampa Convention Center for the new dates.
