Tampa Boat Show reports increased sales, attendance

The 2019 Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat Show presented by West Marine officially wrapped on Sunday after a three-day run with a total attendance of 21,556. With beautiful temperatures all weekend, and despite a last-minute change in show dates from inclement weather earlier in September, organizers said the show saw a 6% increase in attendance and exhibitors are reporting strong sales and quality buyers from the weekend.

Highlights of the weekend included the show’s first-annual Career Day which brought out just over 20 students from the local Pinnellas Technical College and other local high schools engaging in a 2-hour Q&A with marine industry professionals. Additional Show features included On-Water Training Presented by BoatU.S., discounted tickets and exclusive deals Friday evening, a Sunday Family Day, Progressive Insurance Boat Club and more.
