Default Miami vs. Other Boat shows?

With so many people making their way to Miami this weekend, it makes me wonder.......... Is the Miami boat show that much better than the other shows in the US or is it so popular b/c of the location, first show of the year, etc.??? I have been to the LA, Pomona/Ontario and Long Beach shows a couple years ago and thought they were good, but just dont have anything to compare it to.

In terms of the amount of companies, boats, booths, etc. does LA / LB compare or are they all taking a backseat to the Miami Show?

Miami is the grand daddy. The pics you're seeing around oso are only showing the performance market (which blows away all other shows alone) what you're not seeing is everything else including the yacht section that could be a show on it's own!

Something along the lines of 6 billion worth of boats there. Plus the weather.

Miami show is that good, the weather is a monster plus, but I think South Beach kind of helps, at least it did for me.

If your going to the Miami boat show, there would be no other reason to go to any other show. Hot Chicks! Plus the location location location. Ft Lauderdale, South Beach Miami. Enough places to party make your head spin. Did I mention the hot chicks? If our into that sort of thing.

Detroit has a world class car show but our "boat show" is a joke! I suspect the reverse is true in Miami.
