More vessels than ever at PB International Boat Show

The waterfront in West Palm Beach will see a lot of action this weekend. The event is here, of course, due to the potential customers from Palm Beach, and follows two shows that were held early in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. It's fun just to go and dream. Boats come equipped with amenities unimaginable just 10 years ago. Click title for link to the Shiny Sheet article.
 “The buzz around the show is great,” Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III,president and CEO of Show Management, said earlier this month. “So farthis year, exhibitor registrations are running well ahead of last year.That’s a good sign for another great show. Exhibitors are afraid of not getting space.”
That’s a far cry from 2009, when the recession dampened registrations by 20 percent, he said. By 2012, he added, things were on the upswing – and this year’s show has been on track to become the event’s largest.
