Another Miami installation added its name to the growing list of those supporting the Miami International Boat Show’s move to the Miami Marine Stadium and surrounding area.

On Friday, the executive committee of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau said in a letter to boat show director Cathy Rick-Joule that it unanimously consented to approve the show’s efforts to relocate to the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin on Virginia Key in February.

The group’s support comes just before a Miami-Dade County Commission meeting on Tuesday that will determine the fate of the in-water portion of the show. The National Marine Manufacturers Association, the nonprofit group that runs the show, asked for exhibitors to weigh in and show support for the show’s move prior to the Tuesday meeting.
