Tampa Boat Show

Sept 10, 2019

Out of an abundance of caution, as Hurricane Dorian threatened the state of Florida, the 2019 Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat Show, presented by West Marine, originally scheduled for September 6 to 7, is postponed to October 25-27. It will remain at the Tampa Convention Center for its new October dates.

“While we are disappointed to postpone the event, our main concern is the safety of the boaters, manufacturers and dealers that attend our show,” said Kevin Murphy, show manager. “This decision was made to ensure attendees and exhibitors have time to adequately prepare for Hurricane Dorian. We look forward to seeing everyone October 25-27 for what will be our largest Tampa Boat Show yet.”

Information for exhibitors and sponsors on the new move-in schedule and any other details will be coming in the days ahead. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Kevin Murphy at kmurphy@nmma.org; with questions.
