To accommodate a growing waiting list of exhibitors, the United States Sailboat Show has leased an additional 10,000 square feet of space to house a large group of exhibitors.

This is in addition to an island of floating docks that was added a few weeks ago to accommodate additional exhibitors.

The United States Sailboat Show runs Oct. 7-11 in Annapolis, Md. The following week, the annual United States Powerboat Show will be held at the same city dock location.

"At a time of uncertainty, we are gratified to experience such a high level of support for our event. This endorsement by the industry confirms that the Annapolis sailboat show is the most important in the country for the sailing industry," said Paul Jacobs, general manager of United States Yacht Shows, which produces the event.

Organizers also reported that advance online ticket sales are ahead of last year by 12.2 percent for the sailboat show and 14.4 percent for the powerboat show.
