For the 54th year, the 'Yachting Capital of the World' will host the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show® (FLIBS), the largest in-water boat show in the world, from October 31- November 4, 2013.

Attracting an international audience of hundreds of thousands of marine enthusiasts, the show covers six locations with more than 3 million square feet of space. From astonishing super-yachts to fishing boats, runabouts and boats for every budget, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show delivers the excitement of boating, for any lifestyle.

This year, the show continues with its strategic plan of exciting new enhancements, solidifying its position at the forefront of the marine industry as the lifestyle event where interested people gather to connect, learn, see, and buy what is new.

The show’s hottest new attraction is the megayacht venue, SeaFair, a 228-foot custom yacht housing an art exhibit, fine jewelry, a restaurant and bar, the AIM Pavilion, and VIP lounges. Located dockside at the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel and Marina, SeaFair is specially designed to provide a club-like environment where guests can meet to relax or conduct business.

'We are committed to continuously enhancing the show experience for guests and exhibitors,' said Dane Graziano, senior vice president and COO of Show Management. 'This year’s new attractions are designed to bring more fun and more choices to all people visiting the show.'

At the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center show location, the new Sailfish Pavilion will engage guests with displays inside and out, including the Miss Geico offshore racing boat, a fishing pond, a new bar and food trucks.
Other exhibits that are sure to attract lots of attention include a personal submarine, a flying car, and an exotic auto display. The everything marine experience includes world-famous floating cocktail lounges, live musical entertainment, and an exciting schedule of fishing and boating seminars and workshops for adults and children of all ages.

Making for easier navigation and an enhanced show experience, fans will again enjoy themed areas including the Performance Village, the Sportfish Village, CruiserPort, the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss) Pavilion, the Yacht Builders Tent, and the show’s KidZone, located at the Broward County Convention Center.

The show’s six locations are connected by a convenient land and water transportation network. Boat show headquarters are at the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel & Yachting Center, with additional exhibits at the Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Municipal Marina, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Sails Marina, and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.

All attractions and show locations can be easily located through MyBoatShow, the show’s free smartphone app, designed to help navigate the show’s docks, land areas and tents.
