The Miami International Boat Show will have a new home for at least two years as the Miami Beach Convention Center is renovated.
The show will be hosted outside the Miami Marine stadium for 2016 and 2017, the Miami Herald reported.
During the convention center’s renovation, scheduled to start after the 2015 show, only half of the center will be open at a time. The parking lot, where many companies display as well, will also not be available.
The Miami Marine stadium, which has been closed since 1992, is in the midst of a large financing effort by groups looking to restore the facility, which is “widely regarded as an architectural and engineering jewel with no match in the world,” according to the paper.
“Calling Miami Marine Stadium a home in 2016 and 2017 unites two of the City’s most celebrated boating institutions and solidifies Miami’s place on the map as an international boating destination,” said Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
