An event approved and supported by the local authorities

On the 2nd of March 2021, the city of West Palm Beach gave its final approval to Palm Beach International Boat Show event permit. In a press release, Andrew Doole, president of Informa Market U.S. Boats Shows, expressed his gratitude "for the City's collaboration in making the 2021 Show a reality in a safe manner". With a statewide economic impact of more than $680 million, the mayor of West Palm Beach, Keith A. James, stresses the impact and boost the boat show has on the city and region. He also applauses the effort of Informa Market in implementing solutions and safety measures in order to hold the boat show during these unprecedented times.

Restriction and safety measures: what to expect

By putting the health and safety of the staff, exhibitors, and visitors at the utmost importance for the entire duration of the boat show, the Palm Beach International Boat—along with Informa—has established safety measures.

A temperature check will be required at the entrance of the boat show for every attendee, exhibitors, and staff. Besides, the use of face masks will be mandatory. All these health and safety protocols have been decided in accordance with Informa's new safety standards: AllSecure.

"In preparation for bringing events back to the market, Informa has collaborated with [...] health, government, and local authorities to develop industry-wide AllSecure standards that raise the bar on safe, hygienic, productive, and high-quality organized event experiences." Source

Do travel restrictions stop you from attending? Switch to digital solutions!

Even though the organizers have done everything they could to hold an almost-normal boat show, visitors have to comply with their local and national authorities. Travel restrictions remain in place for most countries and the Palm Beach International Boat Show will most likely only attract local visitors. For all international dealers and visitors forced to cancel their visit, online marketplaces such a BOATIM seem to be the best alternative to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and reach potential clients.
