In the wake of the negotiations, NMMA President, Thom Dammrich, had this to say:
The mediation impasse has no impact on the Miami International Boat Show’s plans in 2016 and we look forward to one of the most exciting shows yet February 11-15 at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin. As we work with City of Miami officials to make this site our long term home beyond 2016, we hope the Village of Key Biscayne and City of Miami can come to an agreement that protects the $597 million annual economic impact the boat show generates for the State of Florida while continuing the 75-year legacy event that brings boating enthusiasts to Miami each year to see and shop the best of boating.
