Yachts International - - Contents -

The show will go on. De­spite the wide­spread dam­age that Hur­ri­cane Irma left on both Florida coasts in early Septem­ber, or­ga­niz­ers of the Fort Laud­erdale In­ter­na­tional Boat Show say the mari­nas in Broward and Palm Beach coun­ties fared bet­ter than most, with re­pairs well un­der­way about a week after the storm. From Novem­ber 1-5, more than 1,000 boats and 900 ex­hibitors are ex­pected once again to fill more than 3 mil­lion square feet of space in the city, bring­ing the great­est boat show on earth to South Florida.

Ex­pect to see new float­ing docks, tent floor­ing and di­rec­tional graph­ics to keep you from get­ting lost, all courtesy of Lon­don-based In­forma, which pur­chased long­time FLIBS or­ga­nizer Show Man­age­ment in March. In­forma has ex­pe­ri­ence putting on more than 200 global in­dus­try events, in­clud­ing the Monaco Yacht Show, and plans to en­hance the Fort Laud­erdale show ex­pe­ri­ence in mul­ti­ple ways. (Look for changes at the Wind­ward VIP Club at the Swim­ming Hall of Fame this year, for starters.)
