May 2024 News, Feature Web Exclusive

For boaters, the start of summer is the start of sandbar season, and the SoFlo Boat Show fully embraces that lifestyle by infusing Miami’s vibrant tropical essence into a one-stop-shop and networking experience. The SoFlo Boat Show, produced by Loud And Live, a global leader in entertainment, marketing, media, and live events company, and powered by Center Consoles Only, serves as the bait that will reel in a summer of unforgettable adventures at the historic Miami Marine Stadium from May 17 – 19, 2024. For marine enthusiasts, it’s the gateway to making their fishing and boating dreams a reality.

This nautical event invites its attendees to envision their perfect experience on the water during a three-day experience. From personal watercraft to quad-engine center consoles, from sea trials to engaging demos and activities, the SoFlo Boat Show is conveniently located steps away from the bay and features a dock with 100 boats in the water and an additional 100 boats inside the air-conditioned El Mar Pavilion, a nautical marketplace that showcases the latest in boating gear, accessories, electronics, fishing equipment, and apparel. Beyond displaying boats, the SoFlo Boat Show serves as a networking opportunity to engage in meet-and-greets with industry experts, fostering connections and sharing insights as they delve into the latest boating innovations and styles.

At SoFlo, engaging activities await everyone at the Fishing Zone, offering everything from a fishing simulator to seminars, demonstrations, and a casting pond. New to this year's show is the Underwater Zone, highlighting innovative ocean tech in a 15,000-gallon glass pool, including breathers, scuba gear, scooters, and spearguns. The show’s meeting point will make a comeback with The Ship’s Wheel Bar. This popular spot offers a 360-degree bar experience for relaxation among fellow marine enthusiasts. The Center Consoles Only VIP Package is a convenient option for those looking to have access to an all-day open bar and exclusive lounge.

This year, exhibitors and sponsors are ready to elevate the experience even further with an array of exciting giveaways. Among the standout offerings is the Free Fuel for a Year giveaway, presented by Shoreline Fuel and Orion Oil. With every boat purchased at the event, attendees become eligible to participate, igniting a spark of excitement in every prospective buyer. There will also be an Orion Boat Raffle, in collaboration with CCO and The Guy Harvey Foundation.
