From the October Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show and now to the charter trade shows in the Caribbean… show time continues!
I found the F. Lauderdale Show to be very effective. There was anticipation that the docks would be flooded with European clients ready to spend Euros but this did not seem to be the case. What I did find was introductions to very qualified perspective clients from our sales brokers. I also met with out-of town clients who came to the show to meet with me and to inspect yachts for future vacations. It rained on Friday, which did clear the docks but the rest of the weekend was ideal.
It seems this strong attendance continues to validate Ft. Lauderdale as the preferred US city for all things yachting- From yachts purchases to crewing and provisioning!
