2020 Progressive Metro Boat Show Update – Scheduled for Sept. 17 - 20

Thursday, June 4, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Chris Lessway

MBIA’s Nicki Polan has been active on the Governor’s Work Group to open outdoor recreational businesses which have now been fully opened. Now she has offered her assistance to a new work group focused on building the best practices to allow for outdoor events to open safely. This is important as we move forward with the production of the September Progressive Metro Boat Show.


It is the MBIA Boards opinion that boaters as social people are eager to get out – especially to an event hyper focused on what they enjoy most. So attendance is expected to be strong. Boat sales are exploding currently, so the sales aspect of this event is even more important than ever. MBIA staff is working to identify every appropriate COVID-19 procedure and practice to assure our exhibitors and attendees can confidently attend this event to safely enjoy a day on and near boats and the water, and safely shop for product, services, and marina occupancy in a one-stop-shopping environment.


Wider aisles, hand sanitizing stations, one-way traffic, e-ticket only, day specific ticket sales, and many more practices are being discussed and vetted and we will keep you posted as these suggested and mandated practices evolve over the next several months.


Mark your calendar – the show is currently a go! Past exhibitors will see contract renewals for first rights to their space last year come this week. Along with this will come a short 10 question survey. If you have not exhibited at this important show in the past and are interested in space at the 2020 event, please contact Bethany Sly at 734.261.0123, ext. 2.


Next up will be a work group to safely open indoor events like the Progressive Detroit Boat Show and Progressive Novi Boat Show in 2021.
