The Miami International Boat Show, held on Virginia Key, and the Miami Yacht Show at Collins Avenue are issuing the first joint ticket in both shows’ histories.
For $50 a day, boaters can attend both shows, which are scheduled to run concurrently February 15-19.
The shows, whose adult entry fees are $25 apiece, have long taken place during the same dates but with different ownership and locations.
The National Marine Manufacturers Association owns the Miami International Boat Show, while Informa owns the Miami Yacht Show at Collins Avenue.
“This is one of the most well-known boat show weekends in the world, with many things to see and do for yachting and boating enthusiasts,” Mary Bender, vice president of marketing for Informa, stated in a press release. “The joint ticket is one of this year’s many enhancements designed to deliver the ultimate in enjoyment and convenience for our guests.”
