The annual Progressive Miami Boat Show Innovation Awards will expand into new categories — aluminum fishing boats, fiberglass fishing boats and pontoon boats — and debut at the 2018 Progressive Minneapolis Boat Show.

Winners will be announced during the Customer Preferred Evening on the first day of the Minneapolis show, which runs Jan. 11-14 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Entrants in the 2018 program will boost their product’s visibility at the show by inclusion in the show directory, booth signage and placing product before marine journalists, according to the NMMA in its Currents newsletter.

The Minneapolis Innovation Awards is an additional program that provides the opportunity for a targeted sector to enter the three categories that will be promoted to consumers, similar to the way the Miami awards are, said NMMA spokeswoman Ellen Hopkins Bradley.
