At the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, the Superyacht Builders Association will feature a dedicated floating pavilion that will encompass 16,000 square feet of space.
The pavilion will sit on a barge along the waterway at Bahia Mar, the main hub of the show’s attractions. Along side of the pavilion will be moored superyachts representing the various builders participating in this year’s event.
Exhibitors within the floating pavilion will consist of some of the world’s largest superyacht builders. The intriguing concept should offer show attendees and potential customers a better overall experience, enhancing the value of their time and energy spent moving from exhibitor to exhibitor.
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is schedule to run from October 27th through the 31st and will feature $3 Billion worth of boats, yachts and accessories relating to the industry. Held yearly, the 2011 event will be the 52nd Annual boat show. Attendance, both in terms of visitors and vendors, is expected to surpass last year’s levels.
The Superyacht Builders Association operates with the goal of uniting and representing the world’s leading builders of large yachts by promoting communication with members and their clients along with the wider industry. They also cooperate with regulators to ensure that rules which impact superyachts take into account the unique nature of the industry (quote from the SYBAss website).
