Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was five-days of success

FLIBS Indoor

Nov 14, 2022

“The 63rd annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) ushered in a five-day exhibition of chart-topping achievements for the marine industry. Taking place across Fort Lauderdale’s most iconic locations, including the Broward County Convention Center, the Bahia Mar Yachting Center, and Pier 66 Marina, FLIBS offered guests an immersive experience filled with the latest in boating, marine products, and emerging tech trends. Along with historically generating more than $1.79 billion economic impact for the state of Florida and an impactful revenue for South Florida’s marine, hospitality, and tourism industries, this year’s event made strides in sustainability that have set standards for shows to come.

On behalf of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) and Informa Markets, we are grateful to the Broward County Convention Center, and all our local community partners for working diligently with our team to deliver a seamless and enjoyable experience for attendees, exhibitors, content creators, industry, and community at large. We look forward to returning next year for the 64th annual show as we continue building on our tradition as the largest in-water boat show in the world.”
