What To Expect at the Palm Beach International Boat Show 2017

The South Florida Boat Show season continues to kick into high gear with one of the regions most anticipated yachting events – the 32nd annual Palm Beach International Boat Show (PIBS).

This year, thousands of yachting and boating enthusiasts will visit the beautiful coastal community of West Palm Beach, FL, from March 23 to 26, for what show organizers believe will be the biggest and best Palm Beach Boat Show ever!

Generally recognized as one of the Top 5 annual boat shows in the US, this year the show will have more than $1.2 billion dollars of boats, yachts, superyachts and marine accessories on-hand, from some of the leading yacht builders and marine companies in the world.

There will be plenty to do and see for the whole family at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. There will be ample parking, and docking for “arrive by boat” opportunities. Visitors from all around the world flock to this one-of-a-kind waterfront that has been a big part of the yachting community and yachting lifestyle for more than a century!

The event includes hundreds of boats from 8 foot inflatables, power boats, fishing boats, center consoles, bow riders, personal watercraft, to superyachts over 150’. You will also find the finest pre-owned yachts, tents full of the latest electronics and accessories, seminars and fishing clinics. In addition, expect exotic cars, upscale vendors, live music and waterfront fun for all.

As we reported recently, Show Management, the organizers of PIBS, along with The Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, and Yachts Miami Beach, was recently acquired. This will be the first show since the acquisition, and the new owners of Show Management will be making a presentation sharing their vision for growing the international boating and yachting sector, during a media event held at the show on the 24th.

Show management was purchased by London-based Informa PLC. Informa CEO Stephen Carter, will be the featured speaker at a media briefing.
