Mexico’s Largest Marine Event Rescheduled for December 2021
The International Boat Show & Marine Expo will take place December 3-5 at the Marina Puerto Cancun.
CANCUN – On December 3 – 5, 2021, Cancun will host the country’s largest marine event, the International Boat Show & Marine Expo. The event was originally scheduled to take place in July but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main factors behind the decision to postpone the expo were the elevated epidemiological restrictions, causing capacity limitations and restrictions in events of this magnitude.
Ticket holders, exhibitors and sponsors were the first ones to receive the news a month ago and the overwhelming majority were in favor of the date change. Many factors were affected by the date change: hotel, airline, work schedules and logistics all had to be reworked.
“We need this show to be an incredible experience for both our attendees as well as our exhibitors and sponsors,” says Steven Lorenzo, the show’s director.
The good news is a much more powerful show is coming in December. Visit Mexico, the private tourism company mandated by the Mexican government to handle promotion of all tourism for the country, is now a major sponsor at the platinum level.
The Cancun International Boat Show and Marine Expo was created to continue growth of the recreational marine industry in Mexico. As Mexico is the United States’ 2nd largest recreational marine market, this event was conceived to unite the industry with its audience.
Here, people will meet face to face and discuss their needs and ideas. This connection will lead to continued growth in Mexico’s marine leisure market by providing greater product availability and greater appeal to families.
Cancun offers the perfect infrastructure for continued industry growth and a location to continue the event year after year.
The event will be held at the prestigious Marina Puerto Cancun. This sleek, high-end outdoor mall and marina sits in the lavish neighborhood of Puerto Cancun, known for its marinas, golf course, and multi-million-dollar luxury homes.
There will something here for everyone who enjoys the nautical lifestyle: boaters, fishermen, divers, water-sports enthusiasts and ocean lovers alike.
There will be six unique areas to enjoy: Luxury Yachts Exhibit in the Marina Basin, Corridor Exhibits, In-Water Boat Exhibit, Main Exhibit Area, Covered Exhibit Area, Water taxi and Yacht Tender Drop-off Landing Dock, Fun-zone Demo Area. Each are is indicated on the official show map below.
Many new surprises are coming in December including a 30 ft invisible (100% transparent) snorkeling vessel, e-power yachts, anti-fouling technical breakthroughs, various Mexican boat builders, a walk through the engine room of a 48 meter catamaran ferry, more in-water marina slips and additional branding opportunities.
