MIASF and Show Management/Informa Exhibitions open for business after Irma

Publish date:

Boatyards and marinas in Broward and Palm Beach counties are reporting minimal damage and are open for business, including all boat show sites, the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and Show Management/Informa Exhibitions said Thursday.

The trade group and the company said in a joint statement that all of their facilities have power and are fully operational.

“We stand by to help and support through recovery to the best of our ability,” they said.

They also said they “are grateful to the everyday heroes that dug in and worked 24-7 in preparation for Irma and continue to work to help Florida recover. In the marine sector, the teamwork and coordination between businesses and government agencies resulted in the safe harbor for many vessels.”

“Some areas in Florida unfortunately were exposed to conditions that no amount of preparation could produce a positive result,” they added. Our hearts go out to those who have experienced the full force of Irma.”
