The National Marine Manufacturers Association says it will postpone the Liberty Boat Show until Oct. 1-4, 2009, in an effort to provide a stronger show for exhibitors. It had been scheduled for Sept. 25-28, 2008.

The decision to postpone was made after discussions with exhibitors, who agreed to push the show back because of current economic conditions, according to the NMMA. Exhibitors felt it was better to aim for a strong event 12 months later, when the market is likely to be expanding, according to the association.

NMMA purchased the Liberty Boat Show last May from Liberty Event Management LLC. It manages show operations and exhibit sales out of its New York City office.

The show is still scheduled to be held at Liberty State Park’s Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, N.J. Click here for the complete NMMA announcement.
