Come out on Wednesday, October 13th at 5 pm and join fellow MIASF members for networking, food and drinks, and join the buzz of the boat show! Space for this event will be extremely limited, so stay on the lookout for the registration link if you plan to attend! All members will receive one complimentary drink.
