With El Niño causing record rainfall and flooding, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced Friday it is rescheduling the San Francisco Boat Show to April 29-May 1.
The show was originally scheduled for next week, January 15-18.
"El Niño is wreaking havoc in San Francisco with unprecedented rain and flooding, creating unsafe conditions which are preventing us from producing the kind of boat show our exhibitors and attendees have come to expect," said Dave Geoffroy, vice president of NMMA West. "After talking with exhibitors, we have decided the best course forward is to postpone the Progressive Insurance San Francisco Boat Show to the end of April. We are working closely with exhibitors, and our various partners and vendors, on logistics and will share more detail in the coming weeks. While this is an inconvenience given the last minute change, the good news is that we are able to postpone the show and April’s weather is much more ideal while offering an improved selling environment for exhibitors. In the meantime, we remain focused on the safety of our team, exhibitors, and the Northern California boating community."
