Why Exhibit?

The Progressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show will be celebrating 76 years as the greatest boat show in the world and our second year in our new home in Virginia Key—the historic Miami Marine Stadium & Basin!

This dynamic site houses land and in-water exhibit space for boats, including 700+ slips and fully customizable in-water exhibitor displays in our deep water basin that accommodates large boats as well as hosting boats for sea trials.

Six enormous air conditioned tents have exhibit space for boats under 35’ , marine accessories, electronics, engines, fishing products, nautical gifts and services.

As Florida's largest annual event, the show attracts plenty of media attention, too. There's no better place to introduce new products and promote your company.

You’ll reach consumers at the best time to make a sale—When they are looking! The show is a marine marketplace like no other—it draws avid boaters, fishermen and water sports enthusiasts from all 50 states and 80+ countries. They come to shop—to compare products, discover what’s new and see products they’ve researched online in person.

Exhibiting is a cost-effective way to meet these highly qualified prospects face-to-face in an atmosphere that helps sell the boating lifestyle. The Show's market exposure and timing are exactly what you need to:
