The 35th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show will now be held online in a virtual event.

As previously communicated, we have continuously reviewed the situation with regards to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Following the latest restrictions and with considerable communication with our local and state officials it has been determined that we cannot proceed with the Live event.  Therefore, we are pleased to announce our Virtual Boat Show launching on the show’s currently scheduled day of May 14th

These have been unprecedented days and our primary concern continues to be the health and safety of our visitors, community, exhibitors, staff and vendors. In the show’s 35-year history, we have never dealt with a situation such as this.

The Virtual Palm Beach International Boat Show will continue to be dedicated to connecting our community of passionate yachting and marine enthusiasts with our nearly 500 premier exhibitors.  More details will come as we firm up information. 

The marine industry is an important staple of the Florida economy, accountable for over $23.3 billion. The Palm Beach International Boat Show has a total state-wide economic impact of over $682.7 million.  While the show will no longer take place in its original form, sunny days are ahead and we are looking forward to bringing you the best in boats, yachts and marine products via our virtual show.

As always, we want to thank our City of West Palm Beach officials, our Exhibitors and the boating community for their ongoing support.
