L.A. Boat Show to Add In-Water Location in MdRposted: 11/1/2012
According to a statement from NMMA, the show will be larger than ever, with boats showcased both in the convention center and in the water, plus thousands of the newest marine accessories and gear, along with daily educational seminars and fun for boaters of all ages.
“As part of our effort to grow the show, we’re very excited about the new in-water yacht and brokerage addition,” said Dave Geoffroy, NMMA West’s vice president. “This site will not only help attendees discover the boating lifestyle, one of California’s premier recreations, it will also allow exhibitors the chance to offer demos and test drives that help close sales.”
Attractions at the 2013 show will include “Fred’s Shed” do-it-yourself seminars and an Interactive Learning Center, a “Welcome to the Water Center” with resources to help people get started in boating, DEMA’s “Be a Diver Pool” where visitors can try scuba diving for free, a “Powerboat Docking Challenge” competition, a Very Important Boater (VIB) Night with $5 admission after 5 p.m. on Friday, celebrity appearances by Phil and Bob Soven from MTV’s “WakeBrothers,” and a Southern California Speed Boat Club boat display and driver meet-and-greet event.
The show’s title sponsor is Progressive Insurance.
