The show is moving from September 6-8 to October 25-27. It will remain at the Tampa Convention Center for its new October dates.
“While we are disappointed to postpone the event, our main concern is the safety of the boaters, manufacturers and dealers that attend our show,” said Kevin Murphy, show manager. “This decision was made to ensure attendees and exhibitors have time to adequately prepare for Hurricane Dorian. We look forward to seeing everyone October 25-27 for what will be our largest Tampa Boat Show yet, featuring thousands of the latest marine products on the market.”
