Miami International Boat Show’s Return Approaches

Tickets are available to purchase for the upcoming exhibition on boating and yachting.

Boating enthusiasts can immerse themselves in a sea of excitement as the Discover Boating® Miami International Boat Show® takes over six iconic locations throughout Miami and Miami Beach for an exciting President’s Day weekend. The event will kick off on Wednesday, Feb. 14, and run through Sunday, Feb. 18, offering visitors a chance to explore the latest boating trends and innovations.

The 2024 edition of the boat show results from a joint effort by Informa Markets, the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), and the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA). This edition will feature an extensive display of the latest boating equipment and experiences, suitable for marine enthusiasts of all levels. The upcoming show aims to set a new benchmark in the industry by being the first edition to derive 100% of its energy from renewable sources.

“The Discover Boating® Miami International Boat Show® isn’t just an event; it’s a testament to the passion and innovation driving the boating industry,” says Andrew Doole, president of U.S. Boat Shows with Informa Markets, who produces the Discover Boating® Miami International Boat Show®. “Our team has worked tirelessly year-round to bring this exciting journey to the heart of Miami and Miami Beach. This year, our show offers attendees a blend of entertainment, marine know-how, innovation, and an exclusive look at what’s new in the realm of boating and yachting. We look forward to having guests back for another year of boating fun under the South Florida sun.”

The boat show attendees will have the opportunity to witness the unveiling of this year’s highly anticipated debuts from the world’s foremost boat manufacturers. The event will feature a range of exciting superyacht exhibits, informative fishing seminars, and educational sessions on marine sustainability. Additionally, there will be a pavilion dedicated to marine accessories, and visitors can look forward to the return of the beloved Windward VIP Club, which promises to offer gourmet food and five-star amenities.

“Alongside Informa and IYBA, we’re proud to host the greatest boating event in the world, which attracts more than 100,000 attendees annually, generating significant economic impact for both the recreational boating industry and the state of Florida,” says Frank Hugelmeyer, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association. “We look forward to bringing the best in boating and marine innovation to returning attendees and new customers to shop the largest collection of boat brands and marine businesses.”

The Miami boat show attracts visitors from around 35 countries across the globe to South Florida, contributing an estimated $1.34 billion to the state’s economy every year. This massive event pumps in multimillions of dollars to the tourism and hospitality industry in South Florida, offering the global community a five-day holiday weekend experience.

“Historically, the show has delivered an unparalleled buyer experience, providing an immersive journey into the world of yachting and boating for enthusiasts and prospective owners,” says Paul Flannery, COO of the International Yacht Brokers Association. “This year, guests will have the opportunity to explore the most cutting-edge boat designs and innovations from leading manufacturers, along with inventory presented by industry-leading brokerages.”
