    Default 2019 Miami International Boat Show

    February 14-18, 2019

    So I'm making plans to go this year. My son is living in Miami, so we're booking our trip to see him at the same time as the boat show.
    Should I plan on 1, 2, or 3 days at the show? I'm thinking 2. Anybody know what are the better days to go?

    Thanks Ken.

    I guess I'll be bit more specific in my question(s) and hopefully someone can enlighten me.
    The first day of any show usually has the fewest consumers. Why then does the Miami show charge a premium (60% more) for day 1? Is there anything special happening on the first day?

    Thursday is trade day. Better day to actually see the show IMO, plus Mercury etc. do all their press conferences that day. Weekend crowded, plus it is also the Coconut Grove art festival weekend which is a great event albeit crowded.
    Take one of the ferry boats from downtown Miami to the show. The ones by American Airlines arena usually have a bar on em

    Thanks. I'm flying in Wednesday, so I'll probably go Thursday and Friday (if I need a second day).

    Trade day is the day to go. If you are into the yatchs also you will need 3 days. The yatchs are over on Miami Beach.
