Show Management the organisers behind the annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show have announced MyBoatShow, a new smart phone app that will aid visitors as they tour this year’s show.
The free app, available on iPhone and Android platforms, is designed to help navigate the show’s docks, land areas and tents. Attendees will be able to access show maps and search for exhibitors, manufacturers, product categories and boats by specifications and size.
The app, which will be available for all Show Management produced boat shows, will also provide:
- Show schedules
- Seminar information
- Show transportation schedules
- Food and drink locations
- Restroom locations
- Emergency services
The MyBoatShow app is said to be fast and user friendly and will say the organisers revolutionise boat show navigation.
How well it works for those foreign visitors who need to set their phones on roaming remains to be seen
The show spans six sites this year and will feature more than $3 billion worth of boats, yachts, super yachts, electronics, engines and thousands of boating accessories from every major marine manufacturer and boat builder across the globe, as well as exotic cars, clothing and jewelry.
Other activities at the boat show include marine seminars, fishing clinics, live musical entertainment and an International Food Garden.
Back again is the Drop N’ Go dock where boats up to 40 feet may drop off or pick up guests at the Atlas Dock located at the Hall of Fame Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway.

- The Bahia Mar Yachting Center
