Attendance down slightly at 2013 boat shows
Winter storms on the East Coast kept many boaters indoors this year, leading to a 2 percent slip in overall attendance across 16 national boat shows this winter.
Although several boat shows suffered from lower attendance due to competition for attention from NFL games and the stalling effect of winter storms, exhibitors and show reports said that buyers were still out and many dealers were exceeding show expectations.
Below is a list of stories covering many of this winters boat shows:
New York Boat Show
Atlanta, Kansas City, Nashville and Chicago Boat Shows
Louisville Boat Show, Strictly Sail Chicago and Minneapolis Boat Shows
