Everything you need to know about the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Tickets for the annual International Boat Show at Fort Lauderdale have finally gone on sale! Here’s everything you need to know about this major event for the yacht industry and associated vendors.

What is it?

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – more commonly known as FLIBS – is celebrating 60 years in 2019. It’s the world’s biggest boat show, with over 100,000 visitors and 1,200 exhibitors.

As well as industry exhibitors and boats for sale, the show also features seminars and culinary experiences for visitors to try.

Where is it?

The Boat Show takes place on the Seabreeze Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale – so it’s literally just steps away from the ocean. Perfect for seeing the boats in action, and maybe even taking a trip on the water yourself!

And of course, FLIBS is right next door to Dianthus Miami. We deliver fresh flowers and floral arrangements for private yachts, cruise ships, and every boat in between.

When is it?

This year, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show takes place from October 30th to November 3rd. That’s five whole days to celebrate everything new and exciting in the yachting and cruise ship industry.

What to look out for

There’s a few features we’re especially excited about in 2019, including…

•      get food and cocktails delivered to display stands and boats

•      use the mobile app to keep track of events and exhibitors

•      the new Superyacht Village and marina to show off some of the world’s most elaborate and sophisticated superyacht designs
