Miami Boat Show heralds climate of the global industry

The world's largest boat show, Miami International Boat Show, will begin 13 February with industry pundits anticipating record breaking attendance and spend - a great sign for the global boating industry.

It's the 73rd edition of this mega-show which has grown to stretch over three massive venues. From the air, it's like an overwhelming panoply of yachts and watercraft, dazzling in the spring sunshine. (Fingers crossed for no hurricane conditions this year!)

The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) states that in its first year, the show attracted a total of 50 exhibitors gathered under a tent at Miami’s Bayside Park. This year, when the 2014 event officially opens Thursday, organisers say they anticipate more than 2,000 exhibitors spread over the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sea Isle Marina and Miamarina at Bayside. More than 100,000 visitors are expected to attend over the show’s five-day run.

After last year's event, the NMMA undertook an economic impact analysis on the event - the first of its kind in a decade. The 2013 Miami International Boat Show, which took place 14 to 18 February 2013, attracted 102,118 visitors from around the world.

Prepared by Thomas J. Murray & Associates, Inc, the study assessed the economic impact of the annual five-day event on Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, as well as the state of Florida. Total estimated sales by Florida companies during the 2013 Miami International Boat Show reached $312.2 million, and total excise and sales tax generated within Florida as a result of the show was $30.4 million.

'The results of the new study illustrate the show’s significant impact not only on South Florida’s local economy but to the entire state and recreational boating industry,' said Cathy Rick-Joule, show manager and vice president, NMMA.

'The Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show continues to be a mainstay for dealers and manufacturers, which enables them to showcase their products before an international audience of serious buyers. It is one of the world’s premier boating events – a barometer for annual boat sales, a gathering of the newest and best products in recreational boating, and boost to our economy.'
