The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced a partnership with Informa Markets to merge the Miami International Boat Show and Miami Yacht Show, including Superyacht Miami, creating one of the largest marine events in the world.

The joint production, which will be branded under Discover Boating and carry the Miami International Boat Show name, is scheduled to debut Feb. 16-20, 2022. The in-water events will be centered in downtown Miami at Sea Isle Marina, One Herald Plaza and Island Gardens Deep Harbour on Watson Island. The portion of the show that’s off the water will be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Under the partnership, Informa Markets, takes on management of the in-person experience, while NMMA oversees the digital experience. Additionally, NMMA retains ownership of MIBS, and Informa Markets maintains co-ownership of MYS and Superyacht Miami with the International Yacht Brokers Association. The partnership is the result of long-standing conversations between the two organizations on how best to serve the industry and cultivate a best-in-class boat show experience.
