The 2013 Fort Myers Boat Show was by any standard our best show in several years. Overall attendance was up nearly 20%, and if the weather on Saturday had been just a little nicer, attendance would have been even better. Sales results were very strong and we have heard nothing but positive comments from exhibitors and show visitors. With waterfront improvements finished, the show had a fresh look. The city of Ft. Myers stall did a great job on all fronts, including a much improved parking plan. We are already looking forward to 2014!
The Charlotte County Boat Show, Jan. 16-19 is just around the corner and we hope the same momentum continues with our first show in 2014. The show always produces surprising results for exhibitors and there is still time if you want to participate. Give us a call.
After 25 years, our Spring Boat Show is now the Bonita Springs Boat Show, March 6-9 at the Naples Fort Myers Greyhound Track and it is gaining momentum. Layouts and contracts are being mailed and e-mailed. Since this is a new location and new layout, we are adhering to a strict policy for the initial space assignments. If you are planning to exhibit and you have participated in a SWFMIA show in 2013, be sure you read the procedure and get your contract and deposit back to us by Monday, January 20th.
