Celebrating 79 years and its fifth year at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin, the 2020 Progressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show, presented by West Marine, drew 82,171 attendees over its five-day run ending on President's Day. The Show kicked off with near record crowds on opening day, Feb. 13. Momentum slowed over the weekend with rainy weather, however early reports from several boat and accessory manufacturers reported strong sales and new buyers in attendance throughout the five-day event.

As a result of inclement weather, attendance is down 10 percent compared to 91,518 in 2019. The Miami Boat Show is set to cruise back to Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin in 2021 over President's Day weekend, Feb. 11-15.

"We are happy to hear initial reports from our exhibitors that the 2020 Miami Boat Show was a strong sales event, reinforcing the healthy sales reports we're hearing from exhibitors at our boat shows across the country," said Larry Berryman, show director of the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show, presented by West Marine, and VP of NMMA southern shows. "We are already looking forward to 2021, returning to Miami Marine Stadium and building off of this year's best practices to keep our standing as one of the greatest boat shows in the world and a favorite destination for boaters from around the world."
