The Wilmington Boat Show

The timing has never been more ideal for the launch of The Wilmington Boat Show, scheduled to kick off in September 2016.  The Port City is notoriously renowned as North Carolina’s most accessible coastal destination, nestled between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean.  Striking an enviable balance between a casual lifestyle and global business hub, this coastal gem will now be home to the annual Wilmington Boat Show.

This destination show will take place at the largest Convention Center on the North Carolina coast and the brand new, adjacent Port City Marina, a deep water, full-service marina with over 100 state-of-the-art floating concrete wet slips and a full complement of first-class amenities and services for boats and boaters of all types.  Situated in the heart of downtown, you can walk to restaurants, check out the thriving downtown art scene, or explore the boutique shops.

Understanding boat shows and the perfect recipe for a good one is our business. We have waited more than 10 years for the time to be right in Wilmington and we are excited to finally say, the time is NOW.

We are elated to create a first-class boat show featuring boat lines from all over the Carolina’s and beyond.  It is our job to put the right boats in front of the right people.  We look forward to the start of an amazing experience and cannot wait to see you out on the water at The Wilmington Boat Show.
