[size=4]The World’s Largest Consumer Boat Show to Cruise Into Miami Feb. 13-18, 2003[/size]
Miami Beach, FL, US, October 15, 2002 — The world’s largest boat show – the Miami International Boat Show – will cruise into Miami for a six-day run Feb. 13-18, 2003, at the Miami Beach Convention Center and the Sealine Marina and Yachting Center.
The 62nd edition of the Miami International Boat Show will feature the latest powerboats, engines and accessories from more than 2,300 exhibitors on more than 2.5 million square feet of exhibition space. Show visitors will find new exhibition hours at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Feb. 13; 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Feb. 14-17; and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Feb. 18. Visitors looking to test the newest powerboats will be able to do so at the Sealine Marina and Yachting Center, which will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily.
“The Miami International Boat Show will continue its reign as the industry’s No. 1 gathering for manufacturers, dealers and prospective purchasers of boats and related gear,” said Cathy Johnston, southern regional manager of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), which produces the show. “Our goal is to bring buyers to the sellers in a fun and festive environment that best represents what boating is all about.”
In addition to the exhibits, the show will feature entertainers and interactive boating-related rides and games. For the second consecutive year, the show will host “Sunset Celebrations” from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. on Feb. 14-16 along Convention Center Drive in Miami Beach. These happy-hour festivities will serve as the venues for contests and prize giveaways by local radio stations.
