NMMA announced today the postponement of the 2022 Progressive® Insurance Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Nashville, and St. Louis boat shows to 2023. This is the result of thorough analysis, alongside exhibitors and NMMA members, of the unique needs and economics of each region spanning date availability to supply chain disruptions to historically low market-specific boat inventory.

As NMMA continues to evolve its boat show portfolio as part of its strategic plan to expand the way it serves the industry and consumers nationwide, the association is launching a new boating event on Georgia's Lake Lanier, outside Atlanta, this spring, complementing the reboot of the 2023 Atlanta Boat Show. NMMA will also launch a Discover Boating showcase in Washington, D.C. in May for policymakers and influencers, in tandem with the 2022 American Boating Congress (ABC), serving as a platform to elevate industry innovations and the boating lifestyle. This event will set the stage for a consumer-facing boating event in the spring of 2023 alongside ABC. More details on these plans will be shared in the coming weeks.
