BizBash named the Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show to its list of New York’s Top 100 Events.

To choose and rank the Top 100 list, which includes the advertising, technology, fashion and sports industries, BizBash considers factors that include economic impact, buzz, innovation and the event’s prominence within the communities it intends to serve.

"New York's event calendar has no shortage of influential gatherings that take place year after year," BizBash executive editor Anna Sekula said in a statement. “The landscape is diverse and certainly gives other cities a run for their money when it comes to big names, fund-raising numbers and press mentions.”

"But it certainly changes, too,” Sekula said. “The past few years have seen the thriving local tech scene lead to a number of prominent conferences, from Internet Week to the New York Tech Meetup and Wired's BizCon. And there are new entries alongside long-established events, like the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, the Frieze Art Fair and Governors Ball Music Festival.”

Dubbed the world’s first and longest-running boat show, the New York show takes place annually at the Javits Center.

The show is ranked fifth in U.S. sales of powerboats, engines, trailers and accessories, according to National Marine Manufacturer Association data.
