On October 26-30, 2022, an influx of visitors traveled to Florida to attend the 63rd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). Boating enthusiasts came from around the world for this annual event that showcased exotic cars, exquisite yachts, and over 1300 boats.
The 2022 FLIBS brought $1.79 billion in economic output to the state of Florida through show expenses with $709.7 million in estimated sales by Florida companies.
Throughout the five-day event, over 100,000 visitors came to Fort Lauderdale, 49% of whom are from outside Florida. We love seeing the economic impact this event has on the wonderful city of Fort Lauderdale and the increasing amount of people join our boating community.
The 64th annual FLIBS is scheduled for October 25-29, 2023.
