Palm Beach show now at one location

The Palm Beach International Boat Show, scheduled for March 26-29, will be held at an expanded location this year.

“Our new lease with the City of West Palm Beach includes expanding the show all the way to the Royal Park Bridge, making it possible to accommodate all of the boats and exhibits that were previously shown at the convention center,” said Dane Graziano, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Show Management, in a statement.

The 2009 show will remain the same size as last year with the trailerable (entry level) boats, ranging in size from 18-35 feet and previously shown at the convention center, now making their way to the Flagler Drive site.

This year’s show also marks the addition of “International” to its name, reflecting the steady increase in international exhibitors and products during the past several years, according to organizers.

Owned and sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County, the show will feature more than $350 million worth of boats, superyachts and accessories. The event encompasses more than 1 million square feet of exhibit space on land and in water.
