The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) announced that after seven years, the New York National Boat Show, the world’s first and longest-running boat show, is moving out of its holiday dates back into its traditional time frame. The 105th annual show, which is moving from a nine-day format to five days, will take place Jan. 20-24, 2010, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
Throughout the 2003-2009 date patterns, residents throughout the New York City region have often missed the show because of holiday travel schedules and festivities. With the January date change, local and regional boating enthusiasts will have a better opportunity to attend the show, creating a stronger selling environment for New York Boat Show exhibitors.
Show logistics will be updated in the coming months and can be found here.
