The comfort and safety of attendees, exhibitors, and staff at the Fort Myers Boat Show is of utmost importance and we are committed to ensuring the best possible safety, sanitation, and social distancing efforts are made during the boat show.
Visitors are encouraged to skip the line and buy tickets online. Admission is the same price ($16 adult) for both in-person or online ticket sales, with no extra service fees for online purchases. Online ticket sales run now through the end of the show, so visitors can even purchase last-minute tickets on their smartphones as they approach the gate. Simply look for the clearly marked lane designated for online ticket holders or onsite ticket sales. Show staff will also help direct visitors to the appropriate lanes.
Because the show is largely outdoors and very spread out, it lends itself to easier social distancing than many other events. Show entrances feature clearly marked entry and exit lanes to encourage social distancing. Displays inside the Caloosa Sound Convention Center have been redesigned with wider aisles to prevent crowding. Exhibitors will help maintain social distancing by monitoring the number of guests allowed in their display and limiting boat tours to one group or family at a time. Show staff will also monitor and assist with crowd control at peak times.
Masks or face coverings are required inside the Caloosa Sound Convention Center and are strongly encouraged (but not required) in the outdoor portions of the show. Complimentary masks are available at show entrances.
Hand sanitizing stations will be conveniently placed throughout the show grounds. Exhibitors will sanitize within their displays and boat show staff will regularly clean, maintain restrooms, empty garbage bins, and disinfect surfaces.
To ensure the Fort Myers Boat Show experience is safe and enjoyable for all, signage throughout the show will remind visitors to maintain social distance, make use of hand sanitizers, and to think of the safety of others. We appreciate your cooperation in taking these simple steps, as events like the Fort Myers Boat Show are important to our economy and our need to return to some semblance of normalcy.
