Proclaimed as the “Yachting Capital of the World,” Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will once again host one of the largest boat shows in the world, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS).

Attracting visitors from all over the world, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show features some of the world’s most opulent superyachts and exhibits that range from yacht builders and designers to exotic cars to tenders and toys, fishing gear and so much more.

This year’s edition of FLIBS will feature more than one thousand exhibitors and three billion dollars’ worth of yachts, superyachts, electronics, engines and boating accessories from major marine manufacturers. The boat show encompasses more than three million square feet of space, both on land and in water. But don’t fret about your feet. All locations are connected by the show’s transportation network, which includes riverboats, water taxis and bus shuttles. Yachts will be exhibited in seven different locations, including Bahia Mar Yachting Center, Hall of Fame Marina, the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center, Las Olas Marina, Sails Marina and Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina and Pier 66 Marina.

This year, the main show entrance at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center will now be located further north along Seabreeze Boulevard, south of the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
