“These decisions are the result of continued conversations with exhibitors, health officials, venue operators and other stakeholders to produce safe, successful and high-quality consumer experiences with health and safety top of mind for all involved,” NMMA president Frank Hugelmeyer said in the statement.

“While we determined most of our events in the early part of 2021 are not viable to produce,” he added, “we understand boat shows play a vital role in showcasing new products and generating sales for our industry, and we’re committed to resuming our full boat show lineup as soon as possible.”

NMMA said it expects to resume its entire boat show schedule in September.
