The long awaited return of the United States Powerboat Show (Oct. 7-10) and United States Sailboat Show (Oct. 14-18) to Annapolis has finally arrived. In one month, boaters from around the globe will converge on the floating docks in this downtown historic seaport city to climb aboard hundreds of new and premiering boats from all major manufacturers. Tents will be stocked with happy feet traveling from one booth to the next to browse and shop the latest in gear, electronics, apparel, and accessories. Educational classrooms will be clamoring with eager participants ready to expand their knowledge. Exhibitors will be busy chatting away with future boat owners, and charter companies will be booking future vacations. With such growing anticipation, the Shows management team encourages all show goers to pre-purchase their tickets. And, if the reasons above aren’t enough, here are just a few more:
Avoid The Lines
We are expecting busy show days across all show dates. Ensure you can gain access to all that these fall shows have to offer by purchasing your tickets ahead of time. Avoid getting stuck, and wasting precious time in line when you could be climbing aboard boats, demoing equipment, and talking to industry leaders.
Stay In The Know
Communication is key. The more you know, the better you feel. That is why we are committed to sharing regular show updates to our attendees. When you purchase your tickets online, you are automatically entered into our email database to receive our show news. From exhibitor updates to potential show regulations and things to do in Annapolis, our email updates will keep you in the know.
Plan Your Trip
Maximize your time at the shows by having your day or weekend planned out. When you purchase your tickets ahead of time, you can be sure to check more ‘to do’ items off your list. Book a hotel, set an itinerary to explore historic Annapolis, see what the parking options are. There is much to do, see, and eat in this great city. Do some retail therapy, book a historic walking tour, stroll through the U.S. Naval Academy, grab a bite to eat at one of the many delicious restaurants or just simply walk the beautiful brick-lined streets as you explore. No matter your agenda, purchasing tickets ahead of time allows you to get things in motion and ensure you, and your entire party, have a great time!
