The app, which will be available for all boat shows produced by Show Management, also provides:

Also new to this year’s Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach is TrawlerPort, a true show within a show. Located at the north end of the show, TrawlerPort will offer an impressive display of long-range cruisers called Trawlers. Trawlers are offered in lengths ranging from 35 to 90 feet and are built for long-term cruising of regional and worldwide destinations.
Inside TrawlerPort, attendees will find the floating Trawler Island, where seminars will be presented on topics including destination cruising and navigation. TrawlerPort is designed to help trawler enthusiasts and prospective buyers easily navigate their way through the products and services that cater to the passage making lifestyle. TrawlerPort boats will be marked with banners and flags for easy identification.
The show’s Yacht Equipment Pavilion and Sportfishing Pavilion offer show goers the perfect setting to experience the latest in marine gear, sportfishing equipment, electronics and gadgets and enjoy seminars by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA). Attendees also will find food and refreshments and live musical entertainment on the show’s floating cocktail barges.
