With over 13,000 qualified attendees, the Providence Boat Show has proven to be a solid and effective way of penetrating the Northeast segment of the boating market. By exhibiting at the show, you can obtain your goals of reaching this sought-after market because:
- There is a large attendance from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine, therefore producing exposure to important boating communities including Long Island Sound, Narragansett Bay, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts Bay and the Gulf of Maine.
- Buyers have the ability to see a variety of boats and dealers, find one that suits their requirements and have it delivered in time to use it that spring
- Providence is easy to get to. The new airport is close to downtown and the show site is right on I-95, making the Providence Boat Show an easy destination for travelers from any city.
- Newly re-developed, Providence is a fun and exciting destination in its own right. There is a wealth of fun shops, world class restaurants, and architectural heritage to satisfy almost any taste.
- The Providence Boat Show is connected to a state of the art shopping mall, Providence Place, with over 150 shops, boutiques and restaurants.
- The Providence Boat Show is open evenings as well as days, allowing customers to attend at times that fit into their busy schedules.
