The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) announced the cancellation of nine winter boat shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cancelled shows include the Atlanta Boat Show, Baltimore Boat Show. Chicago Boat Show, Louisville Boat, RV & Sportshow, Miami International Boat Show, Minneapolis Boat Show, Nashville Boat Show, New York Boat Show, and the St. Louis Boat & Sportshow.
“These decisions are in the best interest of our consumers, staff, members, and industry and are the result of months-long conversations with exhibitors, health officials, venue operators, and other stakeholders on producing safe, successful, and high-quality consumer experiences,” said NMMA president Frank Hugelmeyer. “We understand the vital role boat shows play in showcasing new products and generating sales for our industry, and at this time, NMMA expects to resume its full show schedule starting in September 2021.”
