The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association (RIMTA), dedicated to growing the Ocean State’s marine trades through advocacy, education and promotion, announced today that it will purchase the Providence Boat Show from Newport Exhibition Group. In its 21st year, the Providence Boat Show is one of the largest winter boat shows in New England and held annually at the Rhode Island Convention Center. As part of the agreement, Newport Exhibition Group will support RIMTA through management and marketing consultation, as well as onsite staffing for the next show.

'We are very pleased to take ownership of the Providence Boat Show,' said Andy Tyska, president of RIMTA. 'The show has always been a strong platform for selling boats and a very positive event for the Rhode Island recreational boating community. Furthermore, it is an opportunity to showcase our industry and its positive impact on Rhode Island’s economy. Newport Exhibition Group’s commitment to the industry and willingness to provide support through the next show were driving factors in making our decision.'

'RIMTA is a natural fit to manage the Providence Boat Show,' said Tom Delotto, director of Newport Exhibition Group. 'Its dedication to the Rhode Island boating industry and show involvement in past years lends itself to an easy transition. We are pleased to hand over the reins and look forward to supporting them during the transition.'

Displaying one of the largest selections of boats and accessories during the winter show season in New England, the 21st annual Providence Boat Show will take place January 31 to February 2, 2014.
