The Miami Yacht Show has announced a new VIP Experience for 2018. A new floating waterfront lounge will be located at the center of the show, nestled among some of the largest yachts on display.
Celebrating its 30th year and set to take place Feb 15 to Feb. 19 along Collins Avenue across from the legendary Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels in Miami Beach, the show attracts more than 500 new and brokerage yachts and a wide array of the latest marine technology and accessories.
This year, pass holders will have open bar access and be offered refreshments, as well as special showcase and concierge services, all within a climate-controlled setting. “
“We are excited to welcome guests, exhibitors and sponsors to an event that has been elevated on many fronts," said Mary Bender, vice president of marketing for Informa, the show's producer and co-owner. "The new VIP Experience complements our recent re-branding of the show, formerly known as Yachts Miami Beach, to reflect its beautiful location and special appeal among yacht shows.”
A dedicated concierge service provided by Delmay & Partners will provide personalized service for arranging private yacht tours and other requests.
Featured among the special VIP showcases is Watches & Wonders Miami, a nearby event representing more than 20 of the world's leading luxury timepiece manufacturers.
Shuttle service will be available for VIP ticket holders to and from the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue to Watches & Wonders Miami, located in the Miami Design District.
Priced at $150 per day per person, the VIP Experience ticket includes admission to the show and may be purchased online at MiamiYachtShow.com.
The Miami Yacht Show also includes a display of superyachts on Watson Island at the Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina, known as Superyacht Miami.
Yacht brokers can arrange transportation for clients between the two show locations or guests may visit, MiamiYachtShow.com/superyacht to register for access.
Two different boat shows take place in Miami and Miami Beach during the February Presidents' Day weekend.
Informa manages and produces the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue, which it co-owns it with the International Yacht Brokers Association. The event runs concurrently with the Miami International Boat Show, which is owned and operated by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
