The first post-Labor Day weekend of summer and opening day for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t deter boating enthusiasts from attending the Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat Show. The 2013 three-day boating event attracted 18,075 visitors through its gates, a 44 percent increase over 2012 attendance. Early reports indicate the show attracted buyers and resulted in strong sales and leads for exhibitors.

High temperatures,  blue skies and a variety of new and interactive boating attractions to get people acquainted with the boating lifestyle made the boat show the talk of the town. Media highlights include:

Up next: The Progressive Insurance Norwalk Boat Show(Sept. 19-22 ) and Strictly Sail Long Beach (Oct. 24-27).
