The annual Presidents Day Weekend event welcomed 100,000 visitors to Miami and Miami Beach, cementing the show's legacy as a key economic engine and tourism booster for the Sunshine State.

The 2022 Discover Boating® Miami International Boat Show® made waves across the Sunshine State and South Florida in February. In a new economic impact report conducted by Thomas J. Murray & Associates, the 2022 event - which is a joint production from Informa Markets, the NMMA, and the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA) - generated more than $955 million, created over 5,000 jobs, and attracted 100,000 visitors during its five-day run over Presidents Day Weekend.

"As the producers of the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show, Informa Markets is proud to bring an event to South Florida that not only engages visitors, residents, and patrons of the marine industry, but also serves as an unmatched economic engine for the State of Florida. The results of this economic impact study motivate us to continue producing an event that benefits Florida jobs and businesses," said Andrew Doole, president of U.S. boat shows with Informa Markets. "This successful event could not have been achieved without the great collaboration and partnership from the National Marine Manufacturers Association and the International Yacht Brokers Association."
