Organizers of the Palm Beach International Boat Show and Superyacht Show Palm Beach, scheduled to run March 26 – 29 have postponed the event indefinitely with no further information available yet.
Yet another show has been forced to reverse gears and cancel plans to proceed. Having just issued a statement on 10 March that the show would go on, Informa US Boat Shows posted a statement on the event’s website this afternoon stating the show ”will be postponed due to global health concerns.”
US President Trump’s announcement today that Europeans would be banned from travelling to the US for the next 30 days no doubt weighed into the decision. Dozens of European yacht builders were scheduled to be exhibitors at the 35th running of the event. The invitation-only Superyacht portion of the event was set to feature superyachts ranging up to 300 feet, in one of America’s most affluent communities.
