    Prediction: Good luck getting manufacturers back. They have all discovered the power of holding their own customer experiences without the non-buying tire kickers of Miami and the logistical headaches, costs and frankly, distractions.

    By 2022, that scale of trade show won't be a thing.

    As an actual boat show, there is no comparison. The MArine Stadium was hands down a better boat show. There were demonstration rides going non-stop from beginning to end.

    They talk about how hard it was to get to the show, but once we got it figured out, not a very big issue at all.

    Getting from the Convention Center to the in-the-water part of the show from the convention center, twice as much time as getting to the Marine Stadium in the first place, and once there, no where else one needed to go.

    Setup was ten times easier than at the Convention Center, and saved days of time.

    There is only one advantage the Convention Center has. The significant others can get tired of the show and walk to shopping, restaurants, or the beach in just a few minutes.
    Getting bad advice is unfortunate, taking bad advice is a Serious matter!!

    I assume they remodeled the convention center to accommodate more outboard motors.
