The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is the city’s biggest nautical event of the year, coming up October 28 to November 1. Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist, president and CEO of Show Management, the company sponsoring the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, says he expects the event to be stronger this year than last.
Yacht brokerage is leading the way in the marine industry’s economic recovery, with more realistic asking prices, which are generating higher sales volume, says Zimbalist. The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will be the key event of the year for generating sales.
The CEO of Show Management also said that early August advance ticket sales and exhibitor space for the boat show are a little above compared to last year at this time. The company is aggressively marketing the event in 16 countries, with an emphasis on Russia and Latin America this year.
In an effort to make the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show a sustainable event, Show Management is partnering with Native Energy to offset the event’s carbon footprint through renewable energy projects.
