The most important boat show for the performance boat industry, the Miami Boat Show, is moving forward with its new venue at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin at Virginia Key. The show dates are February 11-16. An overwhelming 87 percent of registered Miami-Dade County voters expressed their support for the show to continue its 74-year legacy in the community. Additionally, a decisive majority of surveyed voters — 51 percent versus 23 percent —favored moving the boat show from Miami Beach to Virginia Key, a move that has been prompted by major renovation work at the show's longtime home, the Miami Beach Convention Center. Furthermore, when asked if they supported the move despite the Village of Key Biscayne's widely-documented objections, poll respondents remained firm, supporting the move by a solid 46 percent to 31 percent.
