The Palm Beach International Boat Show is back and will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard to ensure the safest boat show experience for all staff, exhibitors and attendees. All who enter the show will be required to have their temperature checked and it will be mandatory to wear face masks. You must purchase your tickets in advance to attend the show—no physical box office will be present during the show.
April 8, 2020 — The 35th annual Palm Beach International Boat Show (PBIBS) – set for May 14 -17 along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach – has been postponed until further notice.
“Following Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ executive order issuing a statewide stay-at-home directive through April 30, the Palm Beach International Boat Show has been postponed until further notice. We fully support the decision as the health and safety of our visitors, community, exhibitors, staff and vendors is our top priority.
We continue to assess the situation and will provide a detailed update on the show’s status on April 17. With that said, it’s everyone’s business to have a healthy economy. The marine industry is an important staple of the Florida economy, accountable for over $23.3 billion.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show has a total state-wide economic impact of $682.7 million and supports 4,394 full-time Florida jobs. We are all eager to get back on board and help to continue contributing as a major statewide economic driver.
We wish to thank our City of West Palm Beach officials, our Exhibitors and the boating community for their ongoing support as we continue to power through these uncharted waters.”
—Andrew Doole, President, Informa Markets U.S. Boat Shows and George Gentile, President of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County
